I've had no luck with a collection of four herb seeds planted in 3" pots, in, or out of, the heated propagator.Could it be that I used too little seed, and that they like a thick bed of seed to go on?Continue
I've just read a small article in today's paper about this new gardening-cum-competition programme starting early next year. Apparently "nine pairs of passionate green-fingered contestants will go head-to-head in a beautiful walled garden in…Continue
I have disconnected the two Water Butts which collect Water from our Greenhouse. The water in them is not being used enough so it looks a bit stagnant. We have three more. Is it worth keeping water in Water Butts through the winter ?Continue
What can I do with 23 pepper seedlings at the time of year.I also acquired a couple of , what seems to be Jalapeno "shrubs" with little yellow peppers all over them, so I may have rather more seeds than that.Is it possible that we would do best to…Continue
Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a 5 year Gardener's Diary? I have found the RHS ones but they do not give space to record notes on the same day for five years. I know I could use a normal 5 year diary, or blog, but wondered whether…Continue

Please, I'm a research student and would like to know which of the green leafy vegetables would be the best to grow between April and July. I would be grateful if anyone would be interested in my research in giving me a technical growing support in growing these green leafy vegetables in pots in the greenhouse as I'm new to it. I'll also appreciate recommendations in terms of the composts or soil to use for optimum growth. Thanks to you all as I anticipate your favourable response.
today I got the chainsaw out & started taking down 20 year old leylandii in order to allow more light into the polyT. Planted them as 2' trees & kept them at a height of around 8'. Put the polyT up about 5 years ago, no option but to put it on the north side of the leylandii hence sun restriction. The trunks will be saved for the wood burner. Half job done today, 2nd half tomorrow.…Continue
