Sweet pea planting soil.

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 09:39

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!

Then just don't read or reply to it David K, it's as simple as that.

I do find your tone almost bordering on the aggressive and bullying. People are free to post what they like, whether people respond it is up to them and them only.

I'm not part on the "we", I'm me

 

But you are happy to read my posts and react by accusing me of being an aggressive bully?  Thanks for the advice of how to use the forum.

David, if you press the ignore button, you will not see any of Mike's threads, or posts.

With respect, fidget, I'm aware of that, but it's hardly the point.

For what it's worth, during the very long time I've been a member of this forum,  I've never used the 'ignore button'.

I have to ask Daniel if this endless posting of this disruptive person's private life  is in the interest of the forum.....personally I'm fed-up with logging-on every morning to witness yet another of his self-centred  threads.

We need a rest from hearing about his bits!

Good luck, Verdun....sounds a bit of a troublesome time for you.

Makes feel so grateful that both my (now deceased) parents who lived into their 80s & 90s retained their faculties until the end and continued to live contentedly at home to the last.
