Courgettes or Cucumbers?

Posted: 20/04/2014 at 16:01

Iam not laughing - exactly the same thing happened to me last year and I had to just keep potting them on until they were big enough to id. A complete nightmare - I have every sympathy - I have been extremely careful this year. I recommend Tippex - I wrote the info on the pot using a Tippex pen this year -  doesn't fall off, wear off, wash off, get knocked off...

Lobelia

Yes, they are very tiny. That's why when you buy a tray of lobelia each section has many plants in it not one per section like a pelagonium for example.

Compost bins on soil

Posted: 20/04/2014 at 15:12

I have a compost bin bucket with a lid that sits outside my back door and I take it to the compost bin at the bottom of the garden whenever it is full - banana peel, egg shells, coffee grounds, tea bags, veg peel, egg boxes...quite a concoction I don't think any rabbit would find it attractive!

Oh no, lily beetles are back!

There's only one good thing about lily beetles - their colour!!

Where best to plant Fuchsia plugs

Posted: 20/04/2014 at 14:18

It's a good idea to pinch out the tips of plug plants to encourage branching lower down giving you more flowers and bushier plants too. Long tips can be rooted and potted on as new plants too!

What kind of bin have you got? What are you putting in your bin?
