the power went out in the shop this morning ~ possibly a storm????

im half thinking of getting a tent or some sort of similar shelter ~ so i can do some potting up, it could also be protection from the frost??

Blimey....that's a good idea how about one of those small gazebo's maybe...

20 Apr, 2012

 

thats the word, couldnt think what they were called ~ marquee was not the thing i needed!!!

20 Apr, 2012

 

Lol depends how big you want it :-))

20 Apr, 2012

 

a marquee would fill the wood behind never mind the house and the garden!!!! and i cant put one of those up by myself!!!!

20 Apr, 2012

 

gazebo it is then.... :-))

even looked at bird hides but they arent right, pity, i like one thing to be multi-purpose!!!

20 Apr, 2012

 

yes true, are the bird hides no good then, even if you could adjust it maybe...

20 Apr, 2012

 

just a bit cramped and small for several plants. they are designed for one person to stand still i think!!!

obviously i will have to get the sewing machine out and go into production!!!

20 Apr, 2012

 

good luck there Sticki...

20 Apr, 2012

Is it climbing plant? Why is that wire behind?

28 Apr, 2012

 

no it's a bulb Kat grows about 12 inches high the wire is to stop the feral cats we get here using this area as a toilet...
