Defrost the freezer how about defrosting our gardens David 

 

Will when the weather picks up, KEF

My logic is that I can bag the contents up, put them in my outhouse (below freezing) while I'm defrosting and they will be less likely to thaw.

My job for today, defrost the freezer......given the forecasted sub zero temperatures, just the time to be doing it, don't you think?

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Hi, Charlie

August will be the ideal time for having a good display of sweet peas.

I would sow the seed around mid-March, this could normally be where they are to flower or in a cold greenhouse.

With the importance of the event in mind, maybe the latter would be preferable to minimise loss.

Morning, KEF

I did in fact visit the house, but everything was closed. Having said that, I did have a cuppa courtesy of a flask of hot coffee (+ a dash rum) that I took with me. 

Btw, I'm finding digital b & w far more tricky than in the days of film.

Hi, Lizzie.

Like most colours, there are many shades of blue....in fact there are several blue sweet peas.

That being said, it's yellow that has been elusive so far.

Try for 'Blue Shift'.

Also read on here you have to cut the flowers off so they don't go to seed ,When do you start to do this?

 

Don't think I ever said that, but it is a fact that seed pods should be removed asap. The idea is to cut the flowers regularly before they go to seed in the first place.

They look mint gardengirl thats the look i'm going for thankyou.

Baza, I would just say that sweet peas are just cut flowers and not a display feature i.e. they must me cut regularly otherwise they will cease to flower & prematurely go to seed.
