The Potting Bench Diaries – 30th November 2022

This week... I don't know why, but I've felt a little bit like I know what I'm doing! This time last year I don't remember feeling quite like this and quite like I'd got some things organised...nothing everything, but some things. That said, there is always something that can be done, but it doesn't always… Continue reading The Potting Bench Diaries – 30th November 2022

The Potting Bench Diaries – 23rd November 2022

This week... has been hard work, that's for sure! Working long hours and coming home in the darkness means that the weekends contain some of the most sacred gardening time - reserved for all the important jobs...or, in my case - doing loads of things on a whim! I've been looking at piles of bulbs… Continue reading The Potting Bench Diaries – 23rd November 2022

The Potting Bench Diaries – 16th November 2022

This week... is all about enjoying what I'm finding in the garden at this time of year and fully embracing autumn and winter for the beautiful seasons that they are. Sure, summer and spring are stunning but I think we can sometimes overlook the darker and colder months and the joys that they bring...anyway, onto… Continue reading The Potting Bench Diaries – 16th November 2022

This week... I wont be mentioning bulbs...I don't think...! However, I will be talking about some other tuberous plants - dahlias.

Usually you'd wait until the frosts have blackened your dahlias as… Continue reading The Potting Bench Diaries – 9th November 2022

The Potting Bench Diaries – 26th October 2022

This week... has mainly been about veg growing - in a rather strange deviation from the norm you'd expect from Potting Bench HQ! Don't worry...I've not forgotten about flower bulbs, they'll be a special mention for those at the end, but until then I'll start with onions (they're all bulbs really aren't they!). This is… Continue reading The Potting Bench Diaries – 26th October 2022

The Potting Bench Diaries – 19th October 2022

This week... has involved no bulb buying whatsoever...absolute none, not a single bulb. No, I didn't think that would sound very convincing! I've been on another bulb buying spree, this time a few more daffs for the planter out the front, to go with the tulips. And I've also got some more crocus to top… Continue reading The Potting Bench Diaries – 19th October 2022

The Potting Bench Diaries – 12th October 2022

This week... I've been trying my best to enjoy the last remaining flowers of summer. We may now officially be in Autumn but there are some things clinging on as the temperatures continue to drop. Speaking of temperatures, the little thermometer that I've got in the zippy greenhouse is saying that it got to 2… Continue reading The Potting Bench Diaries – 12th October 2022
