Morning All  Just been out to check GH and heard my first cuckoo of the year

Raining steadily here, and has been all night.  GH babies all survived their first night outside - even the badly flagging cucumbers have revived from their post transplant sulk.

and now....... to work

OL - they do sometimes run away with themselves.  You can prick them out into new pots and bury quite a lot of stem to make them sturdier.  And, having done that, i would move them somewhere a bit cooler to grow slowly and steadily.

Welcome back Wintersong.  Dove, pond is really looking good.  

Glad the first arch is in place MrsG.

Spent a happy day pricking out seedlings - cosmos, agastache, delphs, rudbeckias, chillies and cucumbers.  GH benches are now groaning. Made sure none went to waste this year (a lot are Somerset bound), so have a lot more than usual ...... Watering will be a bit of a marathon

Not an expert Mrs G, but they don't look like any sweetpeas i have ever grown - are you sure you have the right pots ??

Mrs G - we grew a wisteria in a pot for about ten years because we were training it into a standard - it did fine, and flowered well.  It was liberated into the garden a couple of years ago, but is still kept pruned as a tree shape - covered in flower buds now.  Here it is - will post again in a couple of weeks when the flowers come out
