Sweet Peas - seedlings

Posted: 27/04/2016 at 10:28

They sound hungry. Seed compost is low on fertiliser. Need potting on. Sweet peas are quite hardy, but they won't like 48°! Pot on then harden them off as soon as you can.

Morning all. Lovely sunny day.

Dog woke me at 6.30am, too early for me, so went back to sleep until 9.

Gardening today.

Didn't know there was a hyphen-less Busy Lizzie.

Forecast doesn't show rain. I will be gardening tomorrow, but may not have started by 11am. Friend is coming to help at 1.30pm.

Hi Dove, glad to hear you Ma is comfortable, best you can hope for. You sound extremely brave about the whole thing yet I am sure it must be a very emotional time for you all. Hugs to both you and WW.

Lizzie, I sent you a PM, a nice one, I promise. 

 

DD I haven't had a PM from you.

Hope Charlie is feeling better now. Have you had a nice evening together?

Just went out to do some weeding as the rain stopped, 30 mins later rain started again, so we are going out to lunch than going to GC and farm shop for anti mole equipment, including the piece of kit Obelixx recommended. Have looked at youTube films about mole problems. There are lot of French ones! The garden shops are shut between 12 and 2pm for lunch. Typical French!

I'm sorry Lily P. I hope it isn't something that will upset his life, I've never heard of it. xx

Morning all.

Hugs for Dove.

Raining. OH has been outside putting gas bombs in the mole runs. I tried repellants, they just move the moles to a different area. OH put a hose down a hole, that just moved the mole on and turned the lawn into a bog.They are undermining the apple trees, in the flower beds, piles on the lower lawn, in the narrow bed around the kitchen terrace (they had to go under rock and concrete to get there) and under the lilac. On both sides of the house. Resorted to traps, but they were sprung without catching anything. I have an expensive thing with a fuse, but it says use it when weather is dry. Weather has rarely been dry this April.
