Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 14/02/2016 at 15:48

A trip to the garden centre to see lots of plug plants for sale, and even tiny tomato seedlings. Got a 10kg tun of Bone Meal for £12.99 which is good value.  About to plant some seeds in the heated propogator and Poole about in the greenhouse until it gets dark.

Tomato variety

I tried to grow losetto last year as part of the Gardeners World Tomato trial for blight resistance. It was the only seed that didn't germinate for me. Fandango germinated very well but I found the skins of the tomatoes a little tough.

I really like Golden Sunrise and Chocolate Cherry for different colour and flavour, along with good old Gardeners Delight for reliable cropping. Precious is also a good one. Excellent flavour and large tomatoe.

Rented House - Concrete garden

Where do I find a tenant that likes gardening?! My last four tenants have added to the garden by dumping rubbish and not lifting a finger to do so much as cut the grass (with the brand new mower provided).  Your landlord is very very lucky lansy.

A Valentine meal with who ?

So glad you asked this question. I've saved them for the first time and had no idea they go on so late. I'm east midlands too so will follow your lead fidget. Thanks!

Watched my mum make 3 for my dad. He said they were like bike tyres! Don't think mum was too happy!

We had an omelette instead as I'm not keen!

Hello - just wanted to let anyone know who enjoys this thread, that Norma has messaged me to suggest starting a Version 2 in line with the improvements being made to the website. I'll do it now so we can keep it going. I really enjoy learning what folks have done every day. Toodle pip!
