Sometimes it's because of the weather, but apart from that, sorry, I don't know.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 11/10/2014 at 21:29

Have sown my sweet peas, in loo roll middles stood up in a window box full of compost. The window box is not outside the window! It's just that it was the right size.

Glad you had a good time and rain didn't spoil it. Looking forward to photos.

What do you do with soil from plant pots?

Posted: 11/10/2014 at 09:55

I throw it on the veggie garden. Used to be clay but years of compost and manure have made it workable.

Good morning all. I hope the TWIGS have a lovely outing. Enjoy Plymouth Chicky.

KEF, I haven't had time to be lonely yet! Was on the phone a lot yesterday, including 2 hours chatting to daughter. Then I went out for meal with friends last night. Drizzled all day. Hope it cheers up today as have things to do outside.

Dove, I didn't mean the very expensive one! Or even the second most expensive, can't see why they are those prices.

This is my OH's one. He likes it because you can put things, like secateurs in it.

I'm back from Chinese meal out with friend in my village who is going to open her garden the same day as me. Her garden is charming, old stone presbytery surrounded by roses and clematis, herb garden, old well with bed round it, gravelled iris bed, 2 ponds and bantams and doves. I think I've overeaten  feel bloated.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

I haven't been able to find any long root training type pots here in France. I used biodegrable loo rolls last year and they didn't go mouldy. I packed them in window box containers and infilled with compost all around the loo rolls which kept them from drying out, but when I planted them the roots were still mostly contained so I didn't have to disturb them. I didn't sow in autumn though so they were indoors. Went a bit leggy. I'll try in the GH in the next few days.

Oh dear Frank, I'm not technical so can't answer. Perhaps they are only rubbed out for you, not everyone else. Could it have something to do with clicking on "ignore"? His posts are intact on the Camera Corner thread.
