How do you oropogate germs? Can cuttings be taken? I have a few but would like to bulk them up a bit.

Do they need any special feed or would some fish blood and bone sprinkled around the base do the job?

What is your weather like?

Hope you managed to rescue your seedlings Flowers. Keep safe.

Its pouring down in Notts. Grey and windy.

Love a bargain

Morning

Ooooh I love a good buy! As its pouring down outside I've been flicking through last months GW Mag and have bought a runner bean stand. Used the discountcode and it came in at £24 instead of £29. Chuffed! Saw the same one on eBay for £34 so think I've got a good buy. 


 I normally use canes but they tend to wobble about as I'm not strong enough to get them deep enough in the ground to be secure. I was tempted to get some willow a chap was selling by the road but too long to fit in my car.

Hope this solves that problem. Now off to find a wood yard that's open to build a bed while the ground is nice and soft. Yippeee! 

Note to self: must not go to the wood yard via the garden centre!!

Don't think I'll ever tire of the enjoyment of seeing seeds germinate. It's fab!

I really enjoyed this weeks GW. I think that the content is much better these days. It's relevant, fun and interesting. 

The woofs are brilliant too. 

A pleasure to watch.

The more I look up the kind suggestions the more I'm looking forwards to having a go at these! Are they best grown from seed or is it better to buy plants? 

Loving the hordeum.


Ive over googled and can't remember what this one is, but it's lovely ....and just what I'm after....

 


 The Red Baron - will plants easily grow in front of it as I like the idea of it as a backdrop.....

Put the chicken wire up to dog proof the garden. Really pleased with it as can't really see it from the house. Just in time as an English bull terrier was let off its lead by another irresponsible owner only for a small Scottie dog to get chased and bitten. Tears and a very heated argument followed. Hoping the council will put some signs up soon before anyone else gets hurt.
