Thanks for all the info

Some of the seeds were in a propagator some just on the shelf in a potting shed some of the latter were the ones that have germinated.

I am in the NE and the weather has been warm for the last week or so

Has anyone had trouble with sweetcorn this year?

I have planted two packets of seed from different suppliers and different varieties in total about 70 seeds, these were planted in pots of compost but I have only got 7 plants when i check the other seed they appear swollen but are very soft to the touch.

Any Ideas please

Lifted onion sets

Posted: 26/04/2014 at 15:00

I have for the last few years started my onion sets off in deep plug trays in the greenhouse usually about the beginning of March then planting out at the end of the month.

Since doing this I do not get the bird problem

seedling compost

I have started making my own compost this year due to poor quality bought stuff

I mix equal amounts of sieved garden soil, leaf mould and peat and so far having good results with seedlings and potting on plants

Rhubarb

Hello

 

I cut off the flowers as they take energy from the plant. As for when to pick pull the stems when they are long enough to use --usually about a foot or more long.

I was always advised to stop pulling rhubarb in July so that the plant can build up strength for the next year
