  1. We've got an arch...

    by , 27-07-2008 at 10:43 PM
    I bought an arch months ago in Woolworths for 3.95, its light metal and its 8 foot high and its at the back of the garden with a rambling rose next to it which I hope to train up. Its a north facing wall though and it doesn't get much sun (its under the plum tree and against the wall). The rose (beginning with 'A') is supposed to be ok for north facing wall though. Dh and I did made it together on the lawn.
    Everything is looking good and the honeysuckle is going a treat, no flowers though. ...

    Has anyone noticed that bought in seed compost from large "Home & Garden" outlets is not as good as it used to be. For example once seeds germinate, dispite using damping of fluid. Plants die or rot off beneath soil level. Has anyone any ideas why this should be happening or have any sugestions to counter it

  3. The lottie's coming on

    by , 27-07-2008 at 07:09 AM
    Just a few words on how the raised beds are coming on. The management of the lottie is very easy and now that i have my shed up i don't have to fill the car up with my tools.Soggy Leeks-00012__1217087794_88.104.39.133.jpg

    Most of the veg grows well with raised beds, but next year i will probably use more compost on the French beans, sweetcorn and courgettes to hold more water there.Soggy Leeks-00002__1217072776_88.104.39.133.jpg



    On the whole raised beds have been a great success .Soggy Leeks-00006__1217070096_88.104.39.133.jpg ...
