Re: Water saving thread

Good tip re adding the water retention crystals to the patio pots. Think I'll try that. I remember the drought of 76. I was in the garden listening to the police radio reports, when there was an alert regarding the forest fire heading towards the nearby army petrol supply. It all got incredibly seri...

Re: Early Summer bits and bobs - 2018

[attachment=0]pots.jpg[/attachment]Just got back from hols too - went to Lost Gardens of Heligan. Well recommended. Their kitchen garden is enviously tidy and full of 'stuff' - and I now have clay pot envy. Never mind the Italian garden with its pretty fountain, the perilous swinging rope bridge in ...

pics of not so good guys

Just found trillions (well, quite a few)..of these little critters, all over the place in the garden this morning. Harlequin ladybird larvae (I think). They're doing a good job. Didn't see many greenfly in their vicinity. Either they've eaten them all or the gf have scarpered.[attachment=0]P1040487_...

Re: greenhouse shading

Thank you Pa Snip - that's help me to decide. It was really blazing hot in there yesterday - which got me thinking. Today it's pouring with rain!. However, I shall be getting the white stuff out ready for the return of summer (hopefully tomorrow).

greenhouse shading

Anyone put the shading on yet? I usually use that spray on white stuff - just on a couple of sides. Is it too soon?

Re: How late can I sow tomato seeds?

I'm always surprised at how many self sown tomato seedlings pop up in the greenhouse. Literally hundreds of them. The seeds I plant in trays are cossetted and loved - and sometimes live but I do get losses. Careful watering and exact light levels. The seeds that grow all by themselves in the greenho...

Re: A view of my garden

Just a little corner of the garden. A couple of gloxinias that I grew from leaf cuttings.
