Confession..

My pots won't all stack in the shed if they aren't washed, so do them as they are emptied. 

 

New allotment OMG...

Went to the allotment this morning. The garden seat/kneeler was fab, no strain on my back..  

Seeds sown at home are begining to look promising, toms have now got true leaves although tiny.   

Anyone done any gardening today?

Went to Beetham GC today, would recommend a visit if you are ever in the area, it's not far from Leven's Hall which is worth a trip to see the topiary. Had lunch and bought a tom plant, herbs and 6 dahlia's.

GWRS, Meant one of those garden seats you can kneel on and when turned around it doubles up as seat.

Went to GC today, I now have 4 reasonably sized tom plants, the one's I sowed are slow to produce true leaves, also bought a sweet pepper plant. Was looking for brussel sprouts as these are far to late to sow now but no joy.

My garden kneel pad came yesterday. Plan to go to the plot tomorrow.

Went to the plot earlier in the week to water and two people from the association were on site, I've been given a year free of inspections. We did have a chat about what I plan to do though and they are happy if I cover the top half. Part of the bottom is already covered, as fruit bushes/tree's have been planted through ground cover keeping down the weeds. 

Happy growwing everyone.

Those are the only two plants they lay their eggs on. They overwinter in the soil, piles of leaves and any debre around the garden, which isn't, necessarily near your lillies. 

I changed the compost in my pots last week and was reliably informed by another poster this will not make any difference.

They also fly.

Toms-- pot or growbag?

Posted: 23/04/2015 at 18:11

Given the choice I'd go for pots. 

I find grow bags to shallow for the roots, alternatively, cut a grow bag in half and stand them on their ends with equal amounts of compost in the two halves and drainage holes in the bottom.

The weather's been lovely here over the past few days so after a walk up to the allotment to water onions and shallots, I relaxed in the back garden, taking in the rays with a pile of gardening books.

I'm now trying to visualise the size of Hostafans lawn ,mine takes 5 mins to mow, 10 tops...
