  • I'd love to do that! Sounds like a really good and healthy hobby...does your veg taste much better than supermarket stuff? I would imagine that something that has been grown and cared for in the way you describe would taste great!

    Me, when I get time like to potter in the garden, bulbs (my black tulips I planted last year are just starting to break through), pots and a few herbs etc, I'm learning more and more each season :)

  • I used to love gardening used to grow my own veg and soft fruit years ago

    Only have a small one now just flowers and that went by the board last year as unable to do anything with it myself hope to knock it back into shape this year though with a bit of luck

  • when you grow your own veg, you know what you are eating,,and how old it is,plus the taste is sooooooo much nicer,if you can, try and grow your own veg all the best tony

  • Thought about growing some in pots as very small garden would that work and if so what is best to try

    Thanks

  • try growing tomatos.they grow well in pots,hearbs there are lots of different types of hearbs,again they do well in pots,,give it a go margareth,,and you will be so suprized at what you can grow ,,if you do grow some veg let me know how you get on lol tony keep:D:D:D

  • Thanks for that Tony will see what i can do how about if I wigwamed some runner beans think that would work or maybe potatoes I shall certainly let you know how it goes Ops gotta go help Denise {daughter} thurs afterschool back later :D

  • I love gardening...but sadly don't have a garden :(

    Although my sister and a good friend let me garden away at their places. In the main its more plants than vegetables. At the mo it's great seeing early bulbs poking their heads through; cutting back, transferring and shaping for the year ahead.

    I live in a flat and have loads of indoor plants - mainly orchids (cymbidiums, zygopetalums, phalaenopsis, paphiopedilums, odontoglossums, Miltonia).

    Indoor plants is what I know best, but one day... :cool:

  • Hi Cavalier :)

    I also live in a flat and miss my decent sized garden but ne'er mind eh

    I have bulbs up as well in fact some of the daffodils are in bud always makes me feel like spring is here still it won't be long now will it

    I like indoor plants but do not have much luck with them they always die on me

    All the best

    It's so easy these days with the supermarkets carrying loads of cheap plants. Replace when necessary :D

    We've got snow here in Edinburgh and whilst not exactly being knee deep, enough to hide what bulbs that were peeking out last week.

    Yeah, roll on the Spring.

    The best to you too,

    Cav

  • Thanks Cav yes easy to replace but I would like to know what I do wrong

    We had a few flakes here in cheltenham as well but nothing much thank goodness spring cannot come fast enough for me

  • Thanks Cav yes easy to replace but I would like to know what I do wrong

    At the risk of going off topic from ciggies as well as boring other members, I'm more than happy to help with some sort of prognosis. Post up or PM your specific concerns re specific plants and I'll have a go at advising.

    Plant husbandry advising is not a contentious issue, neither against forum rules. But we may wish to pay attention to the 'General - Off Topic' part of the site.

    Very, very difficult for me to stifle my usual 'childish' traits of attempting humour, but I assure you I'm sincere in my motives above :cool:

    Regards,

    Cav

  • Thanks Cav

    Will have a think about which plants i lost {killed} and go on general with it
