Sunday supper bump

Wilko,s

Posted: 29/03/2014 at 18:56

greenfingers, I saw someone on a gardening programme once say that it was quite ok to remove a plant from it's pot in a Nursery to check on the roots, now I regard myself as pretty fearless, but I'm not quite sure that I have the cojones to remove a plant from it's pot in Wilko or indeed anywhere else to check on the roots.

I am, however, prepared to try this in several large garden centres if I have the backing of people on this site.

Rosie What I have just done, inspired by you is to line the seed trays (the ones with drainage holes) with polythene as 'saucers' for the pots. I think I could even just make trays (not for moving in and out ) of polythene gripped at the corners with clothes pegs

Rosie, it does need to be in g/h or conservatory at night and out in the day, but compost bags in the collapsible crates that I use for equipment could work...

You are a star!

Tea-time bump. I need CAKE!

Anyone planted out their sweet pea seedlings?

Posted: 29/03/2014 at 17:12

Catie, I can't find out where in UK (or elsewhere) you are. I am just about to plant out my sweet peas that have been hardened off for about 2 weeks. I am in the Norfolk Fens, and yes we have had frost this last week but sweet peas are not that fragile as far as I understand.
