Overwintering Regal Pelargoniums

Posted: 23/09/2012 at 13:13

I have some regal pelargoniums outside in my garden. 

I want to keep them for next year and wonder how to overwinter them.

a)  Do I prune them hard ?

b)  Do I pot them up and put them in an unheated shed ?

c)  Do I pot them up and take them into my house ?

d)  How often should I water them ?

Thanks,

I get that stuff on my tarmac !   As a previous contributor said its slime mould and disappears in drier weather.

Overwintering young delhinium plants

Posted: 13/09/2012 at 17:36

Hi,

Just bought a couple of young delphiniums from the GC.  They are about 2 inches in height and have about 4 small leaves.

Is it better to overwinter these in pots or plant them now in the garden ?   Are there still slugs about as they love delphiniums ?

Thanks,

Carrot Problem

Yes,  like that .

Have pulled a couple and will eat them tonight,  they certainly look fine to eat !.

I'm not worried it would be ice to know why this happens !

The 'fronds' of the carrot seem to have burned as if they have been in the sun and dried out.

I don't think its gone to seed.

My carrots have grown well and are now nearly ready.

I've noticed that the 'leaves' of some of the carrots are slightly frazzled ... has anybody any ideas why ?

thanks

Almost certainly slugs.

Best thing is to cover the seeds with fleece,  making certain the slugs can't get underneath the fleece !

Works every time !
