Living in Dordogne where it can get very hot in summer, I give mine a good soaking every other day, until water comes out at the bottom.
Hasn't anyone been to any gardens this year since April?
We went to Waterperry in Oxfordshire before we went to New York. It was looking lovely.
Do you think I'd win a prize for the biggest carrot at the local show?
Done my first bit of gardening since we came home from the New York trip. Have deadheaded 3 climbing roses and done some weeding in the veggie garden.
Before and after.
Wow, what's happened to Dove? Is that just from visiting Wonky's garden? Shall post her avatar here in case she changes her mind all of a sudden!
So do I. I haven't heard of that before, wonder if it really works.
I have had that problem before, especially in dry weather. Ant powder was the only thing that worked, but usually I don't use insecticides. Case of needs must!
They can be slow to germinate, old seeds are unreliable. But that is rather late to sow. I sow mine in the autumn and again in early spring. Also I sow mine 1cm deep.
This used to be my avatar, some time ago. Very typical of me - buying plants! Then I thought real Busy-Lizzies would be prettier. But I think I was a rose in between.
What I found really surprising was that he didn't have any protective clothing and he put his bare hands into the swarm!
