reduced plants at b and q

Posted: 24/01/2014 at 09:08

Whilst being used as a 'mums taxi' I often do a bit of late shopping and have bought fab plants at next to nothing in Homebase. I'm always amazed how well they grow! My gem recently was a bare root xmas tree which has settled nicely in the garden.

Thanks very much everybody. I'll add it to the compost. I'm really enjoying making compost due to the fact I've just been given a tumbling composter. Not sure how often you're supposed to turn it over but as its new toy I do it everyday!

A friend told me that used coffee grounds is very good for the garden? I popped into a coffee place and picked up for free some bags to try. Before I spread it around my garden/plot which plants hate coffee? I prefer tea myself. Also could I mix it with my JI seedling compost to give that extra kick?

Thanks for the advice.

Congratulations Z44. I got mine last yr-love it. I was there yesterday weeding the soft fruit patch.Perfect way to keep fit! You will find fellow plotters very friendly helpful eager to share their knowledge, plants and harvest too.

Just take it easy-so easy to get carried away with the excitement of the plot. Its hard work but so worth it.

GW mag just arrived and has veg planner-perfect.


Anyone know what this is?

The shape and style reminds me that it could be one half of a nurses buckle worn on their belts. They were usually silver or bronze.

Good luck with the allotment Zoomer44. I thought I had to wait yrs and so didn't see the point in applying until last yr. Guess what? Phoned up- went to see it the next day and choose a half a plot got the keys there and then.

Yes No expert watching the robin is such a lovely sight. A pick up for me every morning is watching the squirrels and birds eating, playing in my garden-then comes the coffee!

Went to the allotment for the first time this yr. Not a soul in sight, enjoyed the birds tweeting breathed in the fresh air and did some weeding with the robin following me around. Lovely morning and now to the day job-housework!

Fab photo Bill. My in-laws live in Toronto, we had Christmas with them a few yrs ago-never ever have I seen so much snow and felt sooooooooo cold. Love the country and everything about Canada. Never ever will l go again in the winter. Perfect distance for a mother in law to live!
