Using my winter bought violas

Posted: 09/04/2015 at 23:16

I plant lots of violas that I buy in autumn as cheap plug plants. They flower their socks off in spring then I'm afraid I have to throw them out between mid May and mid June to make room for summer bedding. But I also put some in flower beds and they fizzle out by July - but unpruned.

Can't, live in the middle of nowhere in SW France.

Potted up about 300 plants today, to add to the ones already potted in the GH. Was very hot although both windows and the door were open.

Morning all.

Over 300 plug plants have just arrived in the post! But the GH is already nearly full as my seeds have done so well. I'll have to have a huge shuffle and some will go into coldframes.

It's sounds as though it will be a lovely (if such a thing can be) funeral, Dove.

Hard to park in Cornwell without paying, I remember. I had to collect small change to make sure we had enough. I like the French car parks where you get a ticket and can choose to pay with a bank card on the way out, only paying for the time you've been there. I hate "pay and display". Even worse are those English car parks where you have to type in your number plate. They don't recognise French number plates so in some of them we couldn't get a ticket.

I had to water my pots around the house last night, they'd got very dry, 20° yesterday.

The nursery I went to see with gardening club was huge, enormous polytunnels with big tables covered in heated mats and masses of baby plants, mostly annuals and veg such as tomatoes, leeks, courgettes and herbs. The chap explained how it all worked and that all the pricking out is done by hand. Then we saw smaller polytunnels with hardening off from heated mats baby plants, perennials and roses. Not nearly such a big selection of perennials as I'd expected though.

Hello Ben, welcome back. I remember you always gave practical advice, especially concerning technical matters.
