It's cold, wet and windy again!


It’s cold, wet and windy again! Its been okay working in the Greenhouse though, i’ve got loads done and its looking nice and tidy. I lifted out the table and gave the slabs a good wash with disinfectant, I put the Tomato plants i’m keeping inside into big pots, got the canes and water bottles in, I find its easier to water the plants with a plactic bottle shoved in at the side of them, (bottom cut off and nozzle shoved into the compost) stops the compost getting too wet and the water goes straight to the roots, no waste.

What a bother I had getting a cucumber plant! I had to go to 3 different garden centres, B&Q had none at all and Homebase should have been shot for what they were trying to sell, I got one at Klondyke and it looks nice and healthy, usually I get one from my neighbour Charlie but he has been so busy this year with work he just hasnt had time and I wanted to get mine going, next year i’m going to grow my own, I paid £1.29 for my cucumber plant you can get a full pkt from Lidl for 39p! The Tomato plants on sale yesterday were £1.99 i’ve been selling mine for 30p no wonder people have been chuffed to bits getting them from me.

I’ve got my Dhalia tubers planted in the front garden and planted out the Stock, small Begonia and Nicotiana in the back garden. I’ve got the Godetia into the window boxes and it seems to be happier. I found a bit of Bleeding heart while I was weeding so ive stuck it in a pot. I also pulled out the garden seat which has been in the Greenhouse over the winter all I need now is a bit of sunshine to be able to sit out on it! i’ll keep hoping. Happy gardening.
