Oh runny beak now I get it! I had no idea what David was talking about! 

 

Believe me, it can become a passion BM....Mr Twinkle toes himself, Frank (Palisade) will soon be joining in soon I'm sure.

Sorry about the OP typo.

...usually a good autumn talking point when gardening matters are winding down.

Watched the pairings last Sunday and concluded that there's some potentially interesting couples this year.

Me thinks it will probably be early doors for Tom Wonnacott and Gregg Wallace. Given last year's impressive contribution by Lisa Riley, I'll wait and see what Allison Hammond is callable of...after all, she does have Aljaz Skorjanec for a partner.

Rather belatedly Brucie has gone.

Sweet pea planting soil.

Hi, Don

Not sure if you'll be looking in again, but I'll answer it anyway.

There is absolutely no reason to be concerned about the nutrients lasting in your SP compost.....on the contrary, too many nutrients will spoil your plants by producing too much over-winter growth.

Whilst on the subject, I would recommend that you use only 'seed' compost to sow your seed, as this has a lower nutrient content. I know some will claim that they use multi-purpose compost with success, but others are unaware that it is responsible for their plants becoming leggy & weak.

Do remember Lyn's advice about using deep pots...SPs are very deep rooted. Sweet pea growing tubes are widely available.

Btw, you may find this thread of some interest: http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/growing-sweet-peas/6143-56.html

I am sorry, I was not going to get involved, but David K for you to put Mike down for talking about his bits is a bit rich considering what you posted the other night, I wont go into detail as there are nice people reading this, safe to say it was very inappropriate and in very bad taste. 

 

What a ridiculous, misinformed & twisted  statement!
