Afternoon folks, is it ok to put my small tommy plants in my greenhouse bed or should they be kept in pots for a while? Thanks

If you go to the competitions page on this website there is a competition to win plants from them.  I'm not sure how relevant this is at all (!) just an observation. 

Cat Poo in the compost !

Posted: 25/04/2013 at 07:59
My friends severely disabled son has a cat. Since owning the cat (from a rescue centre) my friends son's speech has improved loads ( as he's always chatting away to the cat) and his movement is so much better too. The cat provides him with companionship, responsibility, fun and love. I sincerely hope that none of their neighbours feel the need to hurt or scare his cat simply for its natural behaviour. Very often there is a bigger picture, I appreciate on both sides of the cat debate, but some of the suggestions I've read on this forum are worryingly cruel and very very wrong.

Small Urban Gardens and Water Butts - Advice Required

Posted: 25/04/2013 at 07:31
What about designing a water butt that has a dual purpose? For example, a hollow plastic bench but somehow with a tap maybe on the arm? Or an attractive planter shaped butt? Even hollow plastic fencing? Or design something that allows you to direct sink or bath water to a butt that could be sold to house builders?

For some reason I'd imagined I'd get a few from each plant! Doh! I'll try sowing direct. Now a good time to do this? Thanks for the tip on them not liking dry soil tootsietim. Please forgive this next question ( I'm cringing to ask as I must sound rather dim) but is a stem corm something that grows under the soil, like beetroot does?

When will I learn?
