Where do I start?!

Hello Tara and James, you may want to put some spring flowering bulbs, like tulips or daffodils, in a pot so that you'll have some colour in spring. You can always put them in the ground once you know what's what in your garden. It's a fun way to kick off your gardening hobby! Hope you get the bug!

Can anyone recommend a good make of greenhouse pls?

That's Halls off my list then! I think it's going to be Alton or Robinsons, although my local garden centre suggested a Rhino...bit more research for me. Thanks so much for the tips on what to lay inside. Great practical advice.

Autumn Sowing Sweet Peas

Posted: 06/09/2012 at 22:06
I did the trial too and found the autumn sown sweat peas were very leggy, quite weak and quick to dry up. I'll be sowing mine in late spring as these gave me the best results. Good luck!

Hello folks, can any of you lovely people suggest a decent greenhouse make? How much should I expect to pay for an 8x10? Is it best to lay slabs as a base or just a path up the middle and soil? Any other hints and tips very much appreciated. Ooh and are they tricky to erect? Thanking you x

That new roundup gel

Posted: 22/05/2012 at 19:44

Thanks Gary - yes maybe I should be a little more patient.  I applied it a week ago - says it takes up to 7 days but the weeds look sooo healthy!  In contrast to this, I bought some standard weed and feed from Wilkinsons (own brand) and it's worked wonders in the space of 3 days!  Good old Wilkos.

Identify Please ?

Wow Salino - they look stunning!

That new roundup gel

Hello - has anyone else tried that new gel that is advertised on tv?  The one where you are meant to simply dab the leaf of a weed and then it's meant to kill said weed right down to the root?  I've paid over £8 for this stuff and it hasn't worked on any of the various weeds I've tried it on.  Bad bottle maybe, or has anyone else been disappointed with the results?
