Very nice for flavouring soups and stews and marinades, thyme is also antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial, is used in listerine mouthwash and cough medicines and can be used to repel moths.

It's also used in aromatherapy to elevate moods and thyme oil can have a calming effect

Thyme likes full sun, these get to about a foot high in the ground and spread quite nicely, I've got some round one of my apple trees (a thyme and chive combo can be used to repel aphids), these also grow very nicely in pots and containers.

These plants are 2 each, I've got some bigger ones which are 3, please pm me if you want some Smiley

There's various bits and bobs, chives, put a bit more garlic in, peppermint (very nice for herbal tea), some bamboo, St Johns Wort, echinacea (useful for staving off colds), valerian for the sleepytime crew, might have some strawberries later, should have some rhubarb ready for the end of the summer.

I've normally got some other herbs and flowers as well, put about another 20 varieties this spring but can't remember what they all are at this exact moment in time Wink

Bloke's bamboo is really good. I've had mine 2 years now and both plants have gone from around 30 cm with 2 or 3 shoots to 2 metres high & filling a 1m diameter pot with shoots.

Bloke - this thread has reminded me about the garlic: apologies for not getting back to you about it  Embarrassed work's been manic for the last 6 weeks & i've not had a free weekend.

I'm spending the weekend sorting out my garden this weekend. Going to b&q tomorrow to get everything I need. It's a fucking mess at the moment and I'm sick of having a potentially lovely garden! Such a waste!

This year I am growing carrots, beetroot, potatoes, garlic, broad beans, 3 different sorts of tomatoes, and 4 different sorts of chilli.

Westwood Boom!



a fine selection there...

got some fast growing bush tomatoes on the go this year to try and outrun the blight, was planning to not grow potatoes as apparently growing the two close together can give both diseases (same as tobacco and peppers together), however last years unharvested potatoes have started growing now so i might just leave them in and hope for the best, & possibly put the tomatoes in a mini greenhouse to keep the blight spores off.

I'm spending the weekend sorting out my garden this weekend. Going to b&q tomorrow to get everything I need. It's a fucking mess at the moment and I'm sick of having a potentially lovely garden! Such a waste!

We've been sorting ours out over the last few weekends, never bothered with gardening much before other than a few things in pots and on windowsills as we were renting for years and I refuse to do someone elses garden up then give it back to them! I actually am really enjoying gardening, especially when it's so sunny! Can't wait to have a nice looking garden so I can entertain with many many summer bbq's!!!

Currently got 5 types of chilli & various herbs growing, 2 trays of various lettuce leaves just sprouting and am waiting for tomatoes, peppers and pumpkin (I think I planted some more stuff but can't remember now!) to sprout! Got a cheapo greenhouse thing which is basically just a metal frame with a clear plastic cover thing over it from Wilkinsons which is ace! Hoping for lots of home grown food this year! Tried growing tomatoes last year and they did produce tomatoes but then I kept forgetting about them and they all dried out and died! Determined to keep on top of them this time around!

you can put a bit of mulch round the plants to help keep them moist, bark chippings is one which also deters slugs & snails because of the rough surface, you might be able to use gravel too but i'm not 100% sure

Ive got 5 types of chilli too! They are growing excrutiatingly slowly. Is this normal? they took 3 weeks to seed too! Can i feed chilli seedlings with tomato food? or will this damage them. hmm.... probably not the best place to ask but seeing as someone else is growing them too thought i'd ask!

i think it's pretty normal hypnotits, i found mine grew quicker in a greenhouse, this could also be a plastic bottle at a pinch... i messed up the soil mix once (too wet when i made it) and they stayed really small, think it just went solid, what kind of soil are you using?

I have coconut husk biodegradable pots and soil. They're too young to re-plant though, so stuck with that for now. They are on a sunny windowsill so i thought they'd be loving life, but after 2 months they're only 30mm high with 3 leaves! I am impatient! Smiley

i've transplanted young chillis before, started them in one pot then scooped them out and put them in a new one, but you might like to try one first to make sure it survives

http://www.selfsufficientish.com/chilipepper.htm

one i just found, one point was temperature, another is sandy well drained soil... coir holds lots of water, i normally use a mix of coir, normal potting compost and sharp sand, sometimes with a bit of manure, and vary the mix depending on what that type of plant likes, more sand for more drainage, no  or little sand for a plant that likes it moist.

the other thing with chillis is that they survive the winter if kept indoors, some people cut them back to encourage more fruit in the 2nd year

there's still thyme (excuse me)

also got some clary sage at the moment, a lovely annual sage with multicoloured flowers, each pot has 2 or 3 small plants in, and should self seed when planted in your garden, this one is apparently a good toothache pain remedy, 1 a pot to you

also some calendula (english marigold), yellow flowers that attract hoverflies (who eat aphids)
calendula cream or salve is very effective for treating small cuts and abrasions, and skin conditions like eczema and nappy rash (not a cure for either of those by itself, but can keep them well under control)
self seeds prolifically, so should give you a clump of flowers in no time.
once again 3 or 4 small plants per pot, 1 per pot

also some clumping bamboo, probably best to grow in pots or tubs this, since it can spread in the open ground, grows to 2 metres high easily, ideal for screening or a lovely architectural feature for your garden, various sizes from 5 to 20

If you'd like anything, please pm me Smiley

and mint, peppermint in fact,

grows anywhere, excellent for mint tea, sauce probably, just add leaves to boiling water, can take over your garden if planted straight in the ground (patch doubles in size at least every year), so some people plant it in a bucket with the bottom knocked out, or in pots, or in a bed in the middle of a lawn where any mint escapees can be ruthlessly mown down.

lots of medicInal uses, mostly for digestion, settling stomachs etc and freshening breath

some small, some large plants, 2 for a small one, 4 for a biggun, i could probably find some mediums for 3 as well Smiley
