    Too much shade covers the grass and the soil is rubbish so it's mainly weeds and moss. Absolutely no issues with drainage, water passes through.

    My lawn has been absolutely destroyed by my sons playing footy every day. The veg area has been protected but the rest is just patches of grass with patches of soil.

    If the shed is fairly close to the house, it will be cheaper to just get proper power installed than a solar system. Far more versatile too.

    You guys need better computer screens, or maybe you are going blind from something or other.

    I've quit cigarettes but the odd other kind of smoke is what I need a nice shed for.

    After success last year with lettuce and tomatoes, I have now decided the world is my aubergine and I'm on a mission to grow anything that has a chance of surviving in a pot, bucket, growbag or trough. Today I've sown tomato, spinach, pepper, basil, rosemary, oregano and sage seeds, as well as a tray of dahlia seeds, all for indoor germination. Seed potatoes are chitting well, and I should be able to plant them out in a couple of weeks.
    Still have others to sow, including courgette and aubergine, as well as various flower seeds - sunflowers, Echinacea, meadow mix (all freebies - and not for pots), and sweet peas.
    No idea what will work or what won't or whether it's going to be feast or famine, but hopefully there will be some successes.

    Chitting is a method of preparing potatoes or other tubers for planting. The seed potatoes are placed in a tray (often in egg cartons) in a light and cool place but shielded from direct sunlight. All but three or four of the "eyes" (sprouting parts) of the potato are removed, leaving the strongest growths only.

    Lovely lovely job and good luck. Good Friday is traditionally the day for planting your spuds.

    We’ve got lots of seedlings growing in our new greenhouse- big investment that was ouch.

    Tomatoes and chillies. Loads of flowers, cosmos, lobelia, sunflowers, echinacea, teasel, globe thistle, sweet peas, blue hobbit,verbena and some mad 12 foottall things called echiums have a look lol.

    lawn is being overplanted with all these things and fruit. We are more than happy to share our garden with the beasties.

    echinacea proving very difficult for me to germinate successfully only have two coming up from a whole packet. It’s a key plant so I might just need to buy some plugs.

    sleepers arrived last week so am putting in a raised bed tomorrow for onions, kale, lettuce etc.

    Am on a massive learning curve, let’s see what happens. My wife absolutely thrives on this stuff too.
