    Hey Nic,

    I really want to grow my own veg in my garden this year, any tips on your blog as to how I get started and when to start planting, etc.


    • 11. Nip it in the bud  |  January 24, 2011 at 8:04 pm

      my blog is more a photographic diary of my year in the garden than a ‘how to’.
      Much of what I’ve learnt is through trial and error or following the tips of the kindly allotment holders who give me plants!
      There’s lots of info on the net and I particularly like these sites for their usefulness when it comes to what to plant when:
      – Tracey’s I grow veg
      – the Gardener’s World blog
      – the RHS grow your own pages

      Happy gardening :o)

      • 12. Angela De Souza  |  January 24, 2011 at 8:10 pm

        Ooh that’s great, thank you for those websites, I will get stuck into them right away 🙂

        I hope your garden exceeds your expectations this year and gives you a bountiful harvest. xx

    I am so late with my wishes ‘phew’ it’s been a mad one…again.

    Merry Christmas – sorry it’s late and ‘Happy New Year’ here’s to 2011 and all that she brings.

    take care and enjoy the new day/year.

    All the best for 2011!!
    Looking forward to picking up lots of gardening tips when we start on our builder-trampled patch in the spring.

  • 16. Nip it in the bud  |  January 5, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    I shall enjoy seeing how your garden grows Dan :o)

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
