That is gorgeous! Is gardening a hobby of yours? It looks like a labour of love.

Anybugger: It's lovely! I love a nice big picnic table in a garden. And the trellis-y things are lovely (I've blanked on whether or not thats what they're actually called, lol.

RARGH. Everytime I try to add a hyperlink it deletes my entire post. RARGH.

That is my little haven. The balcony ends where the photo ends on the right, and I'm standing in the kitchen doorway, so as you can see, not much space at all.
The ones that have yet to flower are pink snapdragons, and they should be quite tall, and I need another long planter for the rest of the viola's. which are currently being nursed back to health in the black tub on the floor.
Planters are held up by an elaborate system of wires which was bloody awkward to set up, so not looking forward to that.
Considering another planter or two for herbs, but wander whether I can be bothered with the expense/time. Would rather do veggies but there really isn't any space. Boo.

Henri, I was watching Gardners world last night and thought of you.

Oh God I sound like a wierd (sad) stalker!

One of the men on their was using the wooden veg crates like this (but without the veg)


He lined it in newspaper, put in compost, sowed salad seeds and then covered in compost. He said don't water till the sprout (to stop the seeds from sloshing around!!) and then you can cut as needed.

Some of the seeds you can get are cut and come again so they will last a good while.

Thanks for sharing

Anybugger: My main issue with using things like that is because the balcony is so small, if I had more than one tucked away into a corner somewhere, it would make the balcony awkward to use for sitting on in the summer (there's a plastic garden table and chairs just waiting for a stretch of sunny days).
Plus we're probably moving in less than a year (out of the country) and the lazy part of me goes 'All that effort for 9 months! Bah!'

How much success do you reckon I'd have using more of those long planter-trough-things for the same purpose? I'd be much happier to attempt veg if I could tie them up on the balcony railing out of the way.

Thanks, with 5 sisters it gets quite chocca sometimes!

Ours seems to be quite resiliant, the chickens trashed it before we shut them away and everything has grown back

Oooh, I really like that. I love messy gardens. Flowers everywhere spilling out of potplants. Lovely.

Me too, the cottage "shove it in anywhere" is my kind of gardening.

I love the pink flowers (cosmos?) think I will try to get hold of some of those, they look great.

Your garden is lovely

my garden photos

Post  Mrs Big Boobs on Thu May 28, 2009 8:36 pm

I have finally got round to taking photos of my garden.... There are quite a few of them...sorry to bore!


This is from the patio looking towards the end of the garden
" border="0" />
The trees at the bottom are bare in the winter and its always surprising how thick they are come the summer.
" border="0" />
The side border with stones and shrubs. We tried so many times to put grass in and it never took! The front of the patio is bare because of all the extension work we had done last year. The dog isn't camera shy either!!
" border="0" />
my new patio...and kitchen...

The new conservatory and rest of patio.
