Essential Tools

Posted: 16/01/2014 at 20:47

Lots of good advise above.

I'd recommend the Wolf system of interchangeable handles and assorted heads for tools. I haven't got the system but would if I needed to start from fresh.

Don't think anyone's mentioned a thermometer for the GH ,not sure it's a tool more an essential item. Most people rate the max/min one's, if you choose this get one which you can change the battery.

Very impressive archiepem gives me an idea to make some paths with them if I get many more and they could also be used to make a compost area with. 

What did you treat them with?

Looking forward to the weekend when I can get out into the garden. 

A friend dropped off some pallets this evening. I'm already making plans for the allotment I've not yet got, was going to dismantle them and use them to define the veg beds.   

Yellowing Basil plant leafs.

Basil is a half-hardy annual plant, I grow it outdoors in the summer.

Don't know a lot about growing herbs indoors but me thinks it's probably dying due to lack of sunlight. You've done really well to keep it until now and if it's on a window ledge you aren't going to get more light by moving it.

Other's maybe along shortly to give better advise.

 

Raised beds

If you don't already have any of the above, which I'd recommend as first's, mushroom compost can be bought very cheaply from small nursery's for just over a £1 a bag and can be dug in.

thanks artjak.

Hasn't stopped raining but my parcel arrived.

Completed a form for an allotment and am number 7 on the list.  Not going to hold my breath though, it could still take a couple of years to get to the top. Apparently you start with half a plot, which is approx 150 yards...sounded like good news...as  Zoomer tries to work out how big that is in feet and inches
