Be nice and share…This year was my very first attempt at growing potatoes in containers. The first time I grew them was in a field behind a house we used to rent. Digging the drills was hard work but it was worth to see my crop growing. They were doing great and it was just […]

Be nice and share…Growing cucumbers is easy enough – it must be. I’ve managed to grow them for the last few years, but mostly in places where I wasn’t allowed plant them like in the flowerbeds of houses we were renting. (Landlords here have been known to refuse to give back house deposits if you […]

Be nice and share… THE INVASION OF THE CATERPILLARS I was given several packets of Nasturtium seeds last year, I read they were good at attracting bees and butterflies and also at attracting the predators that would otherwise be eating the other plants. So I planted lots of them, here there and everywhere all around […]

Raised Bed Garden

Be nice and share…Making a raised bed garden was something we only decided to do last June. I was still recovering from leg injuries from an accident I had last December and I didn’t think I would be recovered enough to garden but I hate being bored and sitting around with your leg elevated takes […]

Be nice and share… Until quite recently I had never heard of permaculture but I stumbled upon the idea when doing some research into growing vegetables and since then I have been fascinated by the idea of permaculture – permanent agriculture. Now at the moment I know very little about it but what I have […]

Benefits Of Seaweed In The Garden

Be nice and share…There are many ways you can use seaweed in the garden and if like me, you are lucky enough to live so close to the sea you can smell it then it’s hard to resist getting some. Here’s me on the way down the lane to get some seaweed. The big basket […]

PERMACULTURE GARDEN

Be nice and share… Lately I have been learning a little about permaculture and I am very interested in starting to use some of the methods in my garden. The first stage in preparing my first permaculture garden was to choose the place. There are lots of possibilities in my overgrown wilderness but I decided […]

Be nice and share…Scabiosa,  not the prettiest of names, is a wild, pale-lilac coloured flower with long thin stems that is scattered across my garden. It is growing in small groups of six to ten plants – each group covering an area from a foot square to 3 foot square.  FLOWERS AND THE BUTTERFLIES AND […]

These are three acres of beautiful, natural cottage gardens brimming with plants and trees. This amazing place was all developed over the past nine years by Colette O’Neill. PERMACULTURE Colette has […]

CONTAINER POTATOES

Be nice and share...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on RedditShare on TumblrTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on LinkedInDigg this

Be nice and share…I have been growing container potatoes since April. This might seem ridiculous since we have a large garden but none of it was developed or prepared when it was time for planting and back then I was still on hopping between crutches and wheelchair so container potatoes seemed the way to go. […]
