Hanging baskets and pots.

I've tried googling this chart but no luck. Do you have a link?


What is it?

it's definitely NOT a foxglove.

Not meaning to contradict you Mark 1963 but I had one in a pot which succumbed to frost.  And that was in the midlands - perhaps where the pot is placed is also quite important.  However I think this is pot bound.  I would pot up into a larger pot, and if you don't have a larger pot, then take it out, shake all the old compost out, trim the roots by 1/3 and then put it back into fresh compost.  That should do the trick.


Where are YOU?

Still haven't worked out how to add my location to the map.

All right .... own up .... which ones of you do this?

Crushed and thrown onto the path for the birds.

Slugs in the "Slug Jar" filled with salt water and then down the drain.  Unless they drown in the beer traps first.  But still down the drain in the end.

Thank you Tootles. I don't mind waiting, it's part of what makes gardening so exciting, but it is useful to have a rough idea so I don't sit there for weeks only to find we did it all wrong. 

I'll post some pictures when they start growing.

Hello everyone, I hope you're all well.


Could anyone answer my question?  We planted out chitted potatoes and onion sets around 2 weeks ago, but there's no sign of growth yet.  How long do we have to wait?

barking dogs

Posted: 05/09/2013 at 08:33

Luckily for me I do not have any problems with barking dogs, and I am so sorry for all those that do.  Cats is also my major problem, but there are plenty of threads about cat problems so I will not start. 

However, I will add my humble opinion: Diddy, you must get this problem sorted out.  Your neighbour is making your life a misery.  By all means try the sonic thing but if that doesn't work, what will you do? You have to complain to the council and to the RSPCA if you are worried about the dogs' welfare.  I seriously doubt you will end up being shot, but if you are worried about it, lock the doors for a few days and be ready to phone the police at the drop of a hat. 

I know it's annoying when you have to sort out problems that you have not created and force others to take responsibility for their own actions, but if you don't this problem will just get worse.  If you ever wanted to sell your house, you would have no chance if dogs are constantly barking.

Just in case anyone is wondering, I love dogs.  I would love to have one, but my job means it would be alone for most of the time and I would not be able to walk it properly on work days.  So I don't have one.  I personally wouldn't allow most people to own dogs as they are not able to look after them properly, then we would solve the problem of most of the dog mess in public places, people being bitten by dogs that are not trained properly, and noisy dogs making neighbour's life a misery.  When I retire I may get one, but not before.

I wish you luck.
