Leggy mint - help!

Posted: 13/05/2013 at 14:20

Mint lasts for years, as Dove and I have said "prune it" you could feed it a little fertiliser then put it outside and let it grow, which it won't do overnight!

When growing tomatoes, you sow the seeds into small pots, 1 or 2 seeds a pot, or little trays, seeds about an inch apart. When they are about an inch tall with their first true leaves you take them out gently, holding them by the leaves and put each plant into a bigger pot with new compost and put them somewhere warm and light. Then when they are about 6 - 12 ins tall you transplant them into new much bigger pots or growbags or outside in soil once the frosts are over. Next year you will know all about it and you'll have super tomatoes. Much tastier than shop bought.

Google Photobucket and you have to register. When you are registered somewhere it says "upload" so you click on that and it says browse your computer, click and your photo files come up. It has a "library" that your photos go into. When to want to put one here you go to the library and click on chosen photo and some choices will appear on the right, I think it's the 2nd one down, click on it and it will copy the photo. When you click the box goes yellow for a split second. Then when you click on the GW tree it will ask if you want a photo from your computer or an external site. You click on external site and do control V, like copying and pasting.

The top one looks like epimedium rubrum and the bottom one epimedium sulphureum. Your border looks very pretty Pamela. I haven't heard that name before for cowslips.

Bev, we are back in June, and there is a great GC near you that I haven't finished exploring yet! It was raining when we went.

 Here are some not so pretty ones for a change, my veggie garden. I'm not the tidiest gardener and I use permeable fabric to keep the weeds down, 'cos I can't cope with that and the flower bit as well.

Pamela it looks large while you're doing it. But there is a problem with the site because it shouldn't have the white bands above and below and when you click on the photo it should change to an enlargement.

I don't know if anyone has reported it or if the editors are doing anything.

I've done that too, Dove. I wonder if Verdun does?

If people filled in their profiles so that you can click on their avator pictures then you'd know where they are. But perhaps they want to remain anonymous as this is a public site. There is the private message option too.
