Wow ! What I wouldn't give for Dove's gardening knowledge. Serious respect ! I'm quite new to this forum and would love a Dove on my shoulder while I'm gardening ! Felt very privalaged when I recently posted my first question and Dove was the first to put forward answer. Loving this forum and all its contributors !

Yes, she is good (and makes exceedingly good cakes).......I probably know enough to be able to judge.

 'Remember Me'

Some years ago there was a terrible rail crash between two packed express trains where I worked, but given the resulting carnage, the death toll was thankfully quite small.....just one driver of the two trains was killed.

Following the disaster, a fellow workmate and myself decided that as a lasting tribute to the driver, we would construct a memorial garden alongside the track.....the garden is still there, well tended & on view to the public.

That's the story, but (in keeping with this thread) I wanted to say that a dozen of  above rose (Remember Me) were planted in the garden.....these were donated by Gregory's Nursery. 

Thassorl! 

Growing Sweet Peas

Hi, Peter...sorry for taking so long to reply.

There are quite a few reasons why your SPs are as you describe. The first suspect is overwatering, especially during cool weather....this can cause root-rot.

Also, sweet peas need a fairly neutral soil, maybe yours is acid or alkaline?

I  agree with Dave..I have some at much the same stage as yours, rosemummy.

OL - I sometimes do Southport, but often don't decide until closer to the date...if I do decide to visit, I'll PM you.

'Happy is the bride that the sun shines on'......wishing you all a fantastic day.
