Sweet peas not flowering

You fed tomato food too soon and maybe too strong. You don't feed till after they start flowering.

Too cold to plant out now?

The ground is still warm, I know I was weeding a bed full of bluebells today, so planting now will be fine, the ground is dry though so water in well.

Donald or hillary?

People should understand that Americans are driven by their pocket's more than anything else. Social justice, fairness and equality are rarely on their radar. It is deep within their heads that the rights of the individual outweigh the rights of the many. The right of the individual is protected in their constitution and it's original meaning has been lost over generations. Charity comes with a price to be paid by the recipient. They rarely have a vision of long term consequences, evidenced by so many involments in foreign wars and interference in countries around the world. They believe that that they are right no matter what the outcome, as long as they get what they want. They are a selfish people. I've visited America on many occasions and it's a wonderful country with many wonderful people. However it's a country of stark contrast where the haves and have nots live in stark contrast to each other. It is disjointed. So it's little wonder that this election has been and is so divisive. What they fail to realise is that the rest of the world will have to deal with the choice they make, it will affect far more people than live within that country.

They gather at this time of year and roost en masse. It's both a feeding and safety strategy. Fieldfare, Redwing and wood pigeons do the same.

Hazelnuts

As long as you keep them in the shell they stay fresh. You can roast them, add them to pavlova, cakes all sorts of cooking uses, caramelised nuts are gorgeous nice in brownies as well or just coated them in chocolate. Try the BBC food site and enter hazelnuts, loads of recipe's.

A set of Felco's and buy the holster to hold it, and a pen knife in your pocket will do 99% of normal garden chores. It's all I use and they're in use every day.

Help to m in a dilemma

Angela roses are best moved when dormant, so February would be ok. You can prune just before moving them, they'll be easier to handle and will start putting out new roots as the weather begins to warm. As for blackspot, a well fed and watered rose is stronger and will be better able to resist infection. So when replanting add a good handful of bonemeal to the planting hole plus well rotted manure, sprinkle some rootgrow over the roots, water in well and keep them well watered in the first few months. If after all that they show signs of blackspot, spray with Rose clear and keep hygiene around the rose good. Good airflow is important as well along with spraying the ground around the rose, which is where the spores will linger. Blackspot has been almost rampant this year due to the weather so even normally resistant roses have succumbed.
