Your raised bed is looking lovely Chicky.

I'm feeling I'm in a losing battle with weeds! Wishing garden was smaller, that pic is part of it. Not as young as I was when we planned it over 20 years ago! And I've added bits since.

HELLO FORKERS!

Probably. Aidan Turner's bread and butter.

Been in veggie garden, weeding and planting, may have said already. I have a cold and nose blowing with muddy gloves on isn't practical. Going to change and make a chicken stir fry.

Just as RB, if not more so. But he was wounded some of the time so that bit was more along the lines of pale and interesting.

Using manure

If it's nice and rotted, dark and not smelly, then dig it in a bit and you can grow anything except carrots and parsnips as it makes them fork.

Tomatoes in a cold GH

Someone on TV, was it Monty, cut the growbags in half then stood them on their ends so it was deeper.

Runnybeak, we watched The Hobbit part 2 DVD last night, then my heart missed a beat. There was this really good looking chap I thought I recognised. Poldark!

Advice needed with tomato and runner bean seedlings

Posted: 03/05/2015 at 10:23

Normally compost has enough food in it for a month, but those look hungry to me. You usually feed tomatoes when they get flowers. Have they had enough water to enable them to get the food? I would try a pinch of organic fertiliser followed by watering at the bas, not the leaves. They should then green up, but not immediately.

Verdun said "The royal family looks at us as far, far, far inferior to them". How do you know that Verdun? I don't think they do. So far I agree with everything AWB has said.

Thank you. My garden is in Dordogne, France. That tree is a weird sort of sideways spreading prickly conifer that my first OH (died) planted in 1992. He liked prickly plants! I don't care for it much and I cut off the sideways bits as I wanted to see up the garden and to make mowing easier.
