I'm doing a horticulture course at college. Learned a few things and done allsorts. Cant do anything in my garden yet though. House needs sorting and garden needs designing and then I need the money. Just buying bits of tools at a time.

Last week dug out a tree stump and was fucked for 2 days. :rofl:

Where do you get your stuff from stinky? LBS wholesale horticultural suppliers are really well priced. Though its a fiver for delivery unless spending over £120.

Courgettes are spectacular.

Let them eat rich, expensive, funny-shaped, yellow, eggy buns.

Fruits fried and flowes wilted. Another botanical wow is nasturtiums, they're prolific and you can use both leaves and flowers.

I've always stuck a few basil seeds when growing toms,snails hate basil. Always turns out great. Toms and basil go together beautifully.

We've only got a back yard. Is there any way of growing veg - spuds, carrots, parsnips and the like. Maybe in tubs. Anyone had any success growing this way? Any tips?

Yard is south facing and a bit of a sun trap, which should be a plus.

Thanks Dolls. Some good info there.

Yard will need clearing out a bit. There's a fair bit of junk in there :oops:

Its better to grow out of the ground than in. You can control the drainage better in a raised bed or a container. Plus you don't have to bend over and get backache, or raped Scum style. :D

You can grow veg in builder's bags. Veg and fruit need a lot of root space because they suck up nutrients faster than .... *put your own joke here*, so not great for containers. What kind of soil have you got ?

Might have a go at some point then. Cheers Wots.

I did email the council about an allotment a while back, but they just ignored me :mad1: I have since heard from someone there is a waiting list of several years. The council could have told me that themselves though. Makes me wonder why we bother paying council tax if they can't even be arsed replying to an email :mad1:
