Re: Gardening Indoors

Seems a sensible idea - have space, need food eh?

I have just started the second lot of chives on the warm light window sill so that come spring outside they will be ready to be potted on up the allotments.

Re: No Bees?

Even with a flowering programme on the allotment of bee friendly plants, bees are not as common as they were when I first started.

Re: Compost worms

Oh my Weedo that's quite some quantity to try and get your soil up to scratch. Is the cost worth the end results is the question? It's taken some 10 years to get the soil on number 1 allotment to a really wormful condition. Number 2 plot wouldn't know a worm if it saw one and only seems to have some...

Re: December planting

Probably if it's outside but if you have window ledge space, some pots and soil indoors where it's warm and light you can grow a lot of herbs like chives and basil, spring onions worth a try and even lettuce.

Re: December planting

Hi sususanan, I think that the answer to your question is probably not a lot looking at the weather. It's a bit too cold for things like seeds. You might get some late winter onion sets and garlic sets in the ground as both need the cold to get them growing if you want to do vegetables. If you have ...

Re: Vertical gardening

Runner beans grow up. Try http://www.realseeds.co.uk/peas.html for Telephone Peas which are climbers and I've heard good words of those. You can try French beans, climbing varieties – try ‘Cherokee trail of tears’ also from Real Seeds which I've heard good words about. You could also do a search thr...

Re: Hello from Mid-Devon!

Hi Dave - good to meet you. It sounds as if you have lived an exciting retirement life. Do take the time to tell us more about the veg growing. Are any of the weeds edible? Mind - from experience, once they get a hold it can be a game getting rid. Weeds seem to be so much more hardy than things us g...
