Staffordshire on the edges of Cannock Chase......missionaries haven't arrived yet!   

They are still busy here David.

 

Hello. KEF....haven't heard from you for a while, perhaps because Camera Corner has lost some of its impetus.

Where are YOU?

I have the tiniest little 2 leaved thing growing in roughly the right area to possibly be a sp. Only 7 days in ground but maybe! Time for slug solution to be deployed?

 

This is what they may look like, linzy.

Errr, I hate to tell you David but that was Dolly and Kenny Rogers  Agree though, it's a brilliant song.

I'm just listening to the top 100 80's countdown on Absolute 80s 

Yes, spotted my faux pas just in time to edit it, Tracey.

I can see the problem, P..maybe you could tie some string around the canes at intervals of 3 or 4 ins, just for say the first foot....as soon as they start climbing they'll need no help.

Ommthree - I think you just need to be patient....It's still early days and I'm sure they'll catch-up when the nights are less chilly.

David, in building my support for the peas, do I need horizontals as well as verticals for them to climb up?

Well, yes & no, Panda.....if it's a wigwam perhaps some pea-netting around the bottom or even some bushy twigs..... just something to get them climbing. Once they are about a foot or so high, they will climb up each other.

If I knew what type of support you were constructing, I could be more precise.

Support for cordon growing is entirely different.
