Forum home The potting shed


Hi everyone. Just joined and very new to forum life. Not much gardening for me today as weather is miserable might get a few more veg seed sowed. I like to grow veg  and fruit mainly. I dabble with flowers ones that come back every year are my favourite. Hopefully I will pick up some more tips n knowledge form the site. image

    Good morning Fiona and welcome image

    Whereabouts (roughly) are you?  I'm in Norfolk and after some light drizzle earlier this morning the sky's brightening and I'm hoping to get out there - when I've had more coffee and changed out of my pjs image

    Welcome Fiona and MandaPandaimage

    MP - Chelsea isn't great for plant shopping - you can place orders with nurseries, but they don't have plants for sale on site (no room).  But its full of  inspiration and ideas (which are freeimage).  Never been to GW live, but I think there are more plant buying opportunities there

  • Thank you chicky, probably best to place orders less dragging around all day.

    i am looking forward to being inspired.

    Morning Manda.

    My advice for Chelsea: wear comfy shoes, take your own food and be prepared for crowds and queues.
