Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 02/01/2015 at 09:45

Gardengirl - They're looking quite good, the occasional miss you have is to be expected, given recent temperatures.....don't be surprised if they still germinate a little later on.

Tootles - Yes, just a tad leggier than I would have liked. Just keep them nipped back,,,and a few twiggy sticks would help to support them.

Happy New Year to all you early birds. It's so nice to wake up with a clear head & feeling good......why did it take so many years to learn my lesson?

Thanks, Gardengirl, I'll remember that.

Are your sweet peas coping with the cold snap?

Hi, Woodgreen....no, I haven't even given a thought to suppliers yet, but thanks anyway.

I've had this unfulfilled ambition to grow those huge incurve chysanths to show bench standards since I was a little un....in fact, when I left school the headmaster gave me a chrysanthemum growing book as a leaving present.

Years ago, 'Woolmans' were probably the top specialist and I'm pleased to see that they are still around today.

HELLO FORKERS!

No going out on the raz here Pdoc, few drinks something nice to eat and up bright and early, unlike years ago when I was dead until noon     on the 2nd 

 

First sweet pea should arrive just after midnight then!

Skin cancer and survival .please I need your true information , experience on this subject ..I know I have not worded it right . I can't find the words.hope you know what I'm asking .

Skin cancer comes in many forms. I have had personal experience of one type over the past year, which I would relate via a PM, but not publically.

Pleased to say that I'm now fit & well thanks to the efforts of a unbelievably skilful surgeon to whom I am deeply indebted.   

PS.I claim no knowledge of the subject, other than the aforementioned.
