We must compare notes on the yellow pelargoniums,Susie. Mine are growing strongly. They were quite big plants when they came. Of course it is not sad to name your seedlings. The sad thing is to follow the herd! I am sure Adam would agree. The more indivifduality, the more biodiversity, the stronger the life on earth, including the human soecies. Good luck with your celeriac.
I've sown some snake gourds for my friends children. They love it in the garden and thought it would be nice for them to see the plants grow then paint the snakes after they had dried. I've 5 seedlings producing their true leaves but not really sure how many snakes are going to grow on each plant or what to do next. Will they grow out in the garden or should they be grown in the GH. I'm thinking 2 snakes each child to paint so want at least 6 snakes. Tips would be welcome.
I take it no one has grown snake gourds before
I grew celeraic, really easy to germainate, grows easily in plenty muck......however they were just tops no root developed (as in the bit you eat), what a disappointment. I composted them instead so not alll wasted effort.
I have just bought a green gage though, as I stole some fruit from a tree nearby and they were really good, very tasty.
I'm trying swiss chard and salsify for the first time this year. No idea what to do with them if they grow, but they must have looked good in the catalog!
