hi david, i only have a smaller basket, i can keep in cool g'house, is it then worth me jist trying to sow theses dwarf/trailing direct when i sow normal ones in pots? osr sow all in pots and remember to label!!!

 

Well, not something I've tried, rosemummy, but see no reason why it wouldn't work. Perhaps be able to hang them outside, once they start to germinate.

Remember to sow those sold specifically for hanging baskets though,,,,..there are lots of different types (patio sps) and so on, out there.

Nice to see you around these threads, btw.

Mark - using old compost isn't some I have ever done, so couldn't really say what success you would have. Having said that, it's a fact that the sweet pea seed need very little other than moisture and a growing medium from the compost....all the seeds nutritional requirements are within the seed itself.

Good luck with the 'cordon method', it's quite labour intensive.

Posted a couple of pics in Camera Corner, but didn't want to overdo it.

Problems with GW website

Just to say that (just as an experiment) I tried logging-off from this site & logging-on again (I normally stay logged-on) and it does, for the moment seemed to have restored matters.

You're welcome.

'Etiolated'....nice word and one that could have a future within this thread.  

Problems with GW website

I have this slow loading problem of GW too. I also have Virgin Super Hub with a 50 Mbps broadband connection...all other sites are loading normally.

Over the last couple days I've also had the 'Internet Explorer is not responding' problem, but I think that's a separate issue.

Hi, Tesni

I think probably warmth rather than light was the problem. Pinch out the growing tips and they'll probably be okay.
