Garden Kneelers

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...

It's OK on my phone, not yet seen it on the laptop. Not very impressed.. 

Sunflower growth and transplantation advice!

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.

Good advice from above.

Just to add, rake the ashes to sped over more ground. I used one area on the allotment to burn stuff, it did kill surface weeds and all the life in the top soil ie worms but a thick layer of well rotted muck soon brought back worms..

That was last year, re located raspberry's are doing really well, so to are autumn planted fruit tree's in the area. Happy growing

Scrggin. Have a nice holiday.

I'm going away in a couple of weeks. The guy on neighbouring plot is going to water my plants in GH.

Didn't know pigeons liked plum blossom. Mine isn't in flower yet but both Cherry trees are almost flowering.

Hi, GWRS.

It was a wet weekend here so used my allotment time potting up in the GH.

Anyone brave enough to plant out runner beans yet?

I haven't sown any yet! No room in the GH.

SEAWEED IN THE GARDEN

Check if there are local by law, where you live . You can usually collect seaweed washed up on the beach as it's dead. There's more of it after a high tide.

It makes a good liquid feed, spuds and toms love it. I put some in the trench before planting out spuds and dig it into the GH bed before planting toms.
