Sweet Pea Know How

Yvies - Given that the weather is forecast is fairly good for the coming week, probably sometime during the week......decorating chores permitting. 

I always feel it's a case of when the soil is workable, more than the weather, certainly not advisable to plant in wet ground....and do remember to protect them against cold biting winds in the early stages. As I've said many times 'I've never lost sweet peas to frost, but I have lost them to cold winds'.

 Had a little tinker, Fg.....tried to use the shadows rather than remove them.

Hope you don't mind me saying, Fg....just a slight tinkering with shadows & brightly lit areas would make the 'sheep shot' magnificent.

Can't play around much this morning myself, as a few Mother's Day things going on.

Yes, certainly before the advent of slug pellets and the like, Victorian gardeners would trickle a ring of it around plants they needed to protect from slugs & snails.
