Ikea Pottint Table!! Yes really!!

Hi Guys. Just wanted to say, I've found an amazing potting table in Ikea of all places (See picture attached) the GRUNDTAL, Trolley its stainless steel, with a plastic top and caster wheels. I've found the built in bowl, and small runs next to it, are perfect for holding my compost/soil mix while I ...

Re: Bay tree outdoors or greenhouse

You don't say where you are Dan, if you put it on your profile it will help you get more specific answers. I'm down in Dorset right near the coast so mine stays out & is fine, but I do move it to the corner beside the house for a bit of protection. ... I forgot that crucial bit of information.....

Hi guys. Another daft one from me :oops: I've recently been gifted a bay tree, thats been growing nicely in a pot, but really needs repotting, as the last owner put it in a too small pot (its a year or so old, so according to google if i want to repot it, its now or never. Well kinda...) However, I ...
