Talkback: How to grow peas

Hi newboy2 yes twigs not strong enough and as u say difficult, in the end we bought 2 lengths of semi rigid farmers type fence the one with 2 inches square mesh  one metre high sold at any length , Farm supplies sell it very cheap and it last forever ,we always find these suppliers  very helpful and cheap.

Hi Bella, i can highly recommend Hurst Green shaft they are a cracker with heavy crops. 4" apart for us and 12" between rows this makes it easy to use both sides of your supports,we used a metre high chicken wire.

Secure Garden Shed

Hi Dave, they look good dont they, a friend of mine has 3 of them,the problem we both found was  with shed ,garage etc security is as we all know, as a  lock only stops an honest man,iv just had an approach light fitted to the garage that need not wake the neighbourhood as i can point it almost as close to the actual doors as i want ,i will do the same for the new shed when we get it,pointed a little high so animals dont activate it, yes we think they work well,  good luck Dave

Hydrangia Annabelle

What about doing the Dove bit,then in June July take some good cuttings then late next winter or early spring a complete hair cut to base for a nice new plant by that time your cuttings would replace any problems which i dont think you will get as hydrangeas are tuff cookies. just a thought,

Hi Elisnor, youv  probebly  done the plant a favour, leaving the dead heads on Mopheads gives some frost protection, remove dead heads in early spring down to first strong healthy pair of buds.   Lacecaps are hardier they can be cut back to the second pair of leaves below the head after flowering in order to stop seeds developing, once the plants are established cut out one or two older stems to encourage more growth,if they have been neglected cut all down to base for a new plant however no flowers till the following year, other types vary
