You little gem Adddict Can i have some please,i have been in my tardis shelling pods the moment all i can do is literally just walk into my GH tur aroung left and right and that is it.I really must get a bigger one.Whats your plans for the weekend?

Lol Diddy sounds like you are pretty addicted yourself. What are you going to do with all these seeds you are growing? Do you have room in your garden for them all?

Do you want some of everything I collected? Need to save some Nigella for Coys and a few for one of my gardens but you can have the rest.

This weekend is Zumba sat morning, all that boring stuff we all have to do when not at work, sort the seeds I have for you and Coys then go visit friends as many as poss to show I still exist lol.

Weed/Plant ID please

Lol nut. Can you imagine the taste or rather the burn on the way down?!

Mow it certainly does as do most Euphorbias. I grew E. Wulfenii in my garden and when  sat in the garden I could hear them exploding! Didn't mind tho. Easy to pull out where I didn't want them and plenty to share around

Collected more seeds today Diddy. Sat in the boot of my car at the min. Too tired to deal with them now. Collected pink and a few blood red hollyhock seeds, more Astrantia hadspen and Nigella blue.

Since you started this thread it has become like an addiction to collect!!  

Whats the difference,Fresh or green.

Morning all  Actually managed to get on here before work. Don't have time to read what you are all upto tho will have to look when I get back

Raining today....hooray! Have 2 gardens to do today and will be able to get cracking rather than water. Both my ladies are growing some of the seeds I was sent so will check and see how they are doing. Once established next year I will spread them round all the gardens I work in. Feel its my own little effort at keeping variety going!

Have a wonderful day everyone 

Poorly Hellebores?

It is chicky. I only pot on when plants are well and truly established in pots and then just up enough to give then a little more growing space.

 The problem is the compost. Multi purpose is just too water retentive and most people overwater. In the ground water disperses a rule, always an exception like clay tho....There are stones and other bits of debris in the ground too which help with drainage. Multi purpose actually isn't in my opinion. Far better to use John Innes which has soil in it and doesn't act like a sponge!

No I don't think you can. The only thing than can happen is the soil gets a little too acidic from the manure especially for brassicas. Then you just add lime or add mushroom compost which is more alkaline rather than manure where you intend to grow them..

Like the crown Diddy.

I know no more than you about MM. Just that he posted a very strange pic on a thread Verdun had posted on. Then the comment on here and I thought who is this whacko so checked his profile for his posts. Now I am ignoring him.

GJ I use as many as I can get my hands on. Impoverished soil gets stuff chucked on it all the time but once the soil is nice and workable I cut down a bit and maybe mulch once a year. I do work mainly on beds and borders though. Vege plots are a whole different ball game and do require a lot more tlc.
