I'm not getting notifications either, pressing the icon possibly wasn't the answer...


Went to water again this evening. I've taken alot of seedlings out of the GH, sprouts,  broccoli, spinach, chad, pea's, sweet pea and more, it's to hot for them during the day.


Ever so pleased, 16 out of 26 dahlia tubers have leaves. Don't want to tempt fate and take cuttings so they'll be planted out as they grow :)

I have one similar to pink Lillie's except mine is made of metal, it cost less to, they can be bought in this country. It folds up and doubles up as a seat when turned the other way.


Try googling garden kneeler...

You could plant some out now providing they are covered. I use plastic pop bottles cut in half with a hole in the top or top left off. 


You will be surprised, I planted out about a dozen a couple of weeks ago, and there's been frost here in the NW, they are growing out off the pop bottles. 


Don't plant them all out, you'll then have some in reserve just in case the first lot are caught by a late frost.

I planted two cherry trees in the autumn and am growing as fans. Both are doing remarkably well one's almost in blossom.
