Posted: 25/03/2013 at 13:17

now this might sound daft but can anyone tell me how do the spud suppliers do it ,how is the spuds we get to plant different to the ones we buy to eat ,are they not spuds saved from last year or different i dont know,, AND while iv been away i left 3 big red spuds in the kitchen that have chitted beautifully by themselve, Now can i simply plant them as i have abit of room not being used in the allotmenteven just to see what happens or does it not work like that this honestly is not a joke i,d like to know ,anybody ever done there own spud, for the following reason or no

Thankyou all and good luck for this week  Alan

Frozz if you take Rosa,s advice and use a half barrell can we all come round and help you empty it first,, i here Doombar bitter  beer barrells are best, and  perhaps a full one would be better just in case,just think all that beer and a loverly barrell to end up with,Now has anyone got a bitter idea than that

Good luckFrozz miduck

Hydranga cutting

Posted: 23/03/2013 at 14:42

Hi Robin i know how you feel i had to dig up a hydrangea last year so i took 40 cuttings in completely the wrong time of year  , i asked advise and i was told to go ahead and try better then not trying at all ,,and hey i have now 36 farly good looking plants wintering in the well lit very cold  garage slowly hardening off ready to go back,i tried 2 out 2 weeks ago and almost lost them to frost so indoors for a little longer , i just planted as normal into pots in a well drained mix Hydrangeas are tryers and dont give up easily i love em

good luck Rob
