MrsGarden just love that planter with nasturtiums and Nicotiana. I grew some climbing ones one year. Went away for two weeks and came back to string vests Cabbage white caterpillars all over it. Never bothered again but might now I've seen yours
Birdy you can do most anything to Alchemilla and it won't mind. Cut off all the flower heads now if you want....look wonderful in a vase...it will probably put up more but if not it won't do it any harm.
No, I won't cut them all off now but I will tidy it up a bit. Might find some useful space under it. Thanks for the advice.
I grew these in a box, not too bad and easy to dig up
What a great haul, they look delicious. What sort are they?
Addict - thanks, I usually grow morning glory and / or black eyed Susan in this planter( sorry bit early in morning for full names). Neither have done anyhing yet this year. Im pleased with the nastuertiums though.
birdy - I chop off the flowers when in bud on sone of my alchimilla and they stay much more reasonably sized.
Debra - great spuds! What do you mean about growing in a box - di you bury the box in soil to avoid spread or do you mean in a planter? Never grown potatoes or other veg.
Thanks for that good idea MrsGarden, now I know how it behaves I can 'tell it what to do' next year a bit earlier on.
debra - they really look good enough to eat!
loving those spuds.. i have not been n much as not been out in garden much due to heat and playin gup my arthritis.. but here is some of our veg etc.
this is our peas.. have had quite a few harvests of these now.
our runner beans.. had first crop from these yesterday.. very nice they were.
and this is my poor celery.. stuck in the middle.. pipes taken off as got big.. so ready to harvest one soon..yum yum..
and these are our broc and sprouts.. didtn realise how big they get.
i also have some fuschias i need identifying.. i go them in a bulk lot and they ar enot what i asked for.. and no labels came with them.. so if anyone can help me.. i would appreciate it..
these are all of them.. some i know what they are they have labels
but the next ones i have no idea..
this one has pale pink outer leaves
then this one
then this one.. which has got leaves that are starting to turn yellow.. i have it in full sun during afternoon and evening.. is this why.
Lovely projects, plants & veg everyone, I love seeing all the pics.
I've been out with camera this morning as too hot to do much else.
Soz I know they won't enlarge.
Have put brain in gear.
Can anyone tell me what the pink climbing plant on the right is ? I didn't put it there.
This is Rose The Fairy - flowering its little petals off.
There should be another one but I keep getting squash tomato
Lovely pics everyone Kef the pink thing is some sort of spirea....I think...never bothered to look it up just pulled it all out. It suckers all over the place so don't know if you want to keep it.
KEF, if you mean the pink fluffy one on the right under the leaf, it's Spirea Douglasii, quite a vigorous shrub, spreads by suckers.
What did you do when your brain was in gear to make your pictures enlarge?
Lovely pics, everyone. Love the colour of little-ann's blue clematis in the middle.
I grew them in a 3 foot by 3 foot cardboard box on the ground and as the spuds grew i covered them with compost.thats it.very easy.I dont like to dig .
how many planted in the box debra
