Re: Watering

You are in the same position as me,beds dry on top damp underneath.I've chosen not to water just yet whilst hard night frosts are still forecast.

Re: Early Spring Bits and Bobs

Power steering playing up on my Meriva so took it to the garage.Pump leaking and "that will be £900 please,Sir"and labour on top!!The annoying part is that it is a well known fault on Merivas'.Pretty well brassed off.

Max/Min Thermometer.

My old thermometer bounced this morning and didn't do it much good.Looked for a new one on line and could only find digital versions,would like the old fashioned mercury type.Anyone have an idea where I might purchase one?Or are they like Rocking Horse poo these days.

Re: This year's new trial!

Might try "Mini Sweetcorn".Never grown it and there is a variety called"Minipop" so if I can find it then it will be this years experiment.

Re: Type of pot to use in greenhouse/conservatory

Following on from what Sally has written about growing pots for tomatoes etc is there an optimum size pot for starting offthe various sized seeds? Whilst washing 3" pots to start off Sweetcorn seeds I had a sudden thought that it may be that I should be using a bigger size pot or even a smaller...

Re: Lockdown one Rescues success

Sorted an overgrown soft fruit area on my allotment,kept what I wanted and put the rest out for people to take away which they have done.So hopefully they will be a success for their new owners.

Re: Early Spring Bits and Bobs

Cleaned the patch of ground which I am going to plant up with fruit bushes,one half and the other half as an Asparagas bed.Have to agree with Compo,an annoying strong breeze from the north-west got to places where it shouldn't have.Temperature gauge showing 12 degrees, felt much colder than that.I,t...
