finally finding time to move my babies into the new grow shed


By sandra


Well its been a long time coming but finally I got to move my babies into the new grow shed. With my trusty wheel barrow I have spent the week doing one load at a time. and got there in the end.

I have collected all these boxes off the beach over the years and am planning on planting them up with succulents in the spring. I love it when there is writing on the side, there is one here from Scotland, Ireland and England.

Its amazing to have the extra space so I can protect my bigger plants. Need to find more tables now and a nice comfy arm chair.

Filling up in side…

Living roof has done well again this year I will get up there and take some pics soon.

thanks for reading.:-)

sunsets have been amazing lately

There's the reward of all your hard work - might sound a daft thing to say, but those plants look really at home and comfortable! It will be interesting to see more photos of the roof garden too. Will all those plants be OK up there if we have a hard winter?

That's a beautiful sunset.We had a pretty one tonight, not as pink as ours but it seemed to case a rosy glow over everything.

Strera I don't know if the more tender ones would survive a hard winter, but I like to experiment. Some aeoniums and lampranthus survived last winter but time will tell. I know what u mean about the looking comfortable. I love getting them all cosy for the winter and I intend to join them when the weather turns colder. Glad you had lovely sunset too.

Will we be seeing this as an entry in the best garden shed competition next year? Great idea. Hope OH doesn't see it as plants already seem to be everywhere in our place.

Nearly missed this Sandra, its a great indoor growspace, looks very roomy and you will enjoy yourself in the coming months with the polytunnel and now all this extra room to get out of the wind when tending your babies, with sunsets like that to admire who would blame you for being out and about in the nursery, I don't think you will want to be indoors at all...Enjoy..

glad you like it...

i have lots of inside grow spaces now, which gives me more options to work inside this winter Lincs. I have been busy building smaller tunnels in my big tunnel today ready to add a layer when the weather gets colder.
