Root Trainers for Sweet Peas?

Posted: 18/02/2015 at 19:30

I use root trainers. I been using the same set for 3 years so they have lasted if your careful. I find they work great as you can start sweetpeas in september leave the in a cold frame. I have always had good strong plants with good root systems.

I remember last year i accidently snapped one of the shoots off and i threw the shoot in a old pot outside that i had not yet replaced the soil in and the shoot rooted by itself and i used it as a plant. Very east to root from cuttings. I normally just divide the tubers or grow from seed as others have said as they are so easy.

Thanks ill have a check of the compost and pick the leaves off

Nasturtium leaves yellowing

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 21:33

I have grown nasturtium in a container and the leave are yellowing and look anaemic. I have some growing in the ground and they are very lush and green. I used two thirds old compost in the container as I read too much nutrients reduces the flowering of the plants however I am wondering if perhaps they are deficient in nutrients. I never water the container now as again I read this causes lots of foliage and no flowers however we have had a lot of rain lately. Should I feed them and what with?
