Fast growing out of space....


Love my new mini green house but i’m slowly running out of space there too…

Really need the weather to change very soon :-)

and theres more ….

then back in the kitchen theres some sweet peas, cherry toms for hanging baskets and another batch of lettuce.

This week i’m going to be praying for dry weather so i can get out into top part of garden and clear more of the rubble to make space for hubby to build the first of my raised beds.

Fingers crossed xx

Hope everyone had had a lovely easter w.end, what ever you maybe doing xx

I only have a small garden Kimmy but I have found some more room using spare guttering to grow things in :-)
See my blog 'spare guttering idea' :-)

I love the spare guttering idea. Is there any way of attaching them to the inside of the greenhouse. It would make so much more space available when it is too cold to plant outside. I have 8 x 4 shelf high plastic bookcases. They slot together using pipe type uprights. I lower and raise them as necessary but there is still room between them and the glass to put guttering if anyone knows how to do that. I have a standard 6 x 8' gh

Can't think how to do that at the moment Scotsgran but I am sure someone here will come up with something. I didn't think of putting the guttering inside.
Someone had a good suggestion of when the seedling come up in the guttering, make a trench in the soil outside and slide all the plants out in the trench :-)

Yes I've seen them using guttering for peas to stop them being checked when transplanting. Can't think where, maybe on Beechgrove Garden.

Could you get some garden wire Scotsgran and tie it between the uprights. Then you could wire the guttering to it. If not could you make a 'hammock' out of the wire and suspend the guttering from the roof - or use both ! :-)
I fixed another gutter today under the first one and filled it with salad bowl lettuce and spring onions. I made the brackets out of some aluminium tube that I had in the shed and hammered it flat and then bent it :-)
