Got Big Courgettes. Recipes, please!

Posted: 10/08/2014 at 10:34

That sounds good

Are you finding this is a poor season?

Posted: 10/08/2014 at 10:13

Most crops have done well here in the Fens, but greenhouse toms are tasteless (outdoor Marmande are superb though) Quince tree has only one fruit, but quite a load of pears ripening now. The first runners came through shaped like this - C, which was odd; they have reverted to normal now Flowers are the tallest they have ever been, which means a fine crop of canes holding them up. Soft fruit has been brilliant.

Good photos, great quality  Is this the same camera that you normally use? As I think you have the same as I do, but I never seem to achieve that quality

Heuchera - What variety is it and advice on looking after it

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 22:35

Hello RC. I have a few Heucheras and have found that they do well in semi shade, I would not grow them in containers as they seem (for me) to do well in damp soil, which is hard to achieve in a small container from day to day.

I suggest that you google Heucheras - you may be amazed at the variety available, I am rather hooked on them; my favourite is Pinot Gris

Options for improving soil nutrients

Dyers End, suggest you put it on freecycle. But I have to ask; why don't you want it? Making your own compost is SO rewarding - it gets rid of a lot of garden and kitchen waste.
