HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 07/05/2014 at 21:49

My agastache always die in the winter. Lost 3 x Heather Queens this winter, yet it was a mild winter. Wet, but the bed is well drained. Not going to bother with them anymore.

Thanks KEF, I always worry a bit.

Have weeded, now there is room for more plants. I always leave some gaps for annuals in the beds, they are so pretty and long flowering.

I don't know what your budget is, but what about this sort of thing, toughened glass.

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

Posted: 07/05/2014 at 09:30

You ease each one out carefully using a pencil or a plant label to dig it out with, holding by the leaves, not the stem. Have little pots waiting filled with compost. Make a hole in the compost, lower the seedling in and gently firm the compost around it. Then water using a fine rose. This is called "pricking out". Takes a bit of time, but I enjoy doing it.

Laying turf on hardcore

Posted: 07/05/2014 at 09:27

My lawn is on an old farmyard with a hardcore base, topped with topsoil. Gets dry in summer and more weeds seem to grow on the shallowest bits, but it's still a lawn.

My Lupines are wilting!

Lupins don't like being moved, but I would do what pansyface says.

What to grow in vacated veg beds....

Posted: 07/05/2014 at 09:23

I would make a salad patch, an asparagus bed and a strawberry bed. All have been said, but that's my choice.
