 My camellia 'Water lily' stands about 8ft tall and is absolutely covered with buds from top to bottom, so in a few days it should be a picture.

Cucumber planting advice

Yes, 18 inches to 2ft apart would be about right...although for the life of me (unless you are a commercial grower) I can't understand why any want more than one plant, given the amount of fruits they produce.

It is important to make a mound of soil to plant them on, as they are very prone to stem rot in the early days of planting out. This is to avoid accumulations of water around the stem, which gets extremely cold during the night.

As someone who is aware of how much a good camera lens can cost, when we see the process in this clip, it's easy to understand why.

While I think these represent really good value for money and can be very useful, temperatures do fluctuate wildly and they are subject to condensation.

Just like to say, that I use Vitax Q4 as a top dressing when planting out my own sweet peas...although (as previously stated) blood fish & bone meal will do just fine.

To be honest, Gg, I don't usually grow dwarf sweet peas and those I have, haven't had a spreading habit.....you'll probably have to plant thickly for ground cover.

'Health & safety issues'...... I'm a retired signalman so I do so well understand that.

Probably something like plastic covered netting, plastic covered chain link netting if the funds allow.

I agree, a great man and brilliant author.

Thankfully he passed away without reverting to taking his own life, which of course was on his agenda.

I think that works very well, Ann....what I had in mind when I started this thread really.
