What to grow in vacated veg beds....

Posted: 08/05/2014 at 09:38

Globe artichokes are a large (6') short lived perennial. I read recently that they are very good for you especially to fight off old age. You get them as cuttings and plant out late May.

Plus globe artichokes

Anyone know what could be causing this?

Hi, the soil looks a bit dry...did you plant it where a rose had been before? There is a condition known as rose repeat disease, caused by planting a rose where one was before.

What is the best way to remove seedlings from a propogator?

I use a pencil or tiny dibber and push gently from the bottom through the drainage holes.

Garden path ideas.

I believe that the thing about bricks (and indeed any path material) is that they must be frost proof or they won't last long.

Would it be an idea to have really heavy duty 'football field' type grass for your path and softer, finer grass for the lawn; they would be different shades of green and so easy to maintain.

If you go for gravel, even with an edging some of it will creep on to the lawn; it does on mine! So being madly extravagant I would suggest a herringbone design of bricks

Pauly, don't know where you are in the country, but mine have been out in my fairly exposed garden in the Fens for about 2 weeks.

Or is there a water main that is leaking? How does the soil smell?
