riddle solved

Rosemummy, I'm pleased to know that you've solved your SP problem.

I'm at the opposite end of the spectrum to you, my children are all grown-up (I'm now blessed with 2 grandchildren)...so I do have the t-shirt.

With the above in mind I would suggest leave gardening matters until you have the time to enjoy it (what time, I hear you say) because gardening is relaxation that should be enjoyed.

Trust me, sooner than you think, the children will understand that mummy needs her own time.

Good luck!

Hi, Jen...not sure if you've read my sweet pea thread http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/growing-sweet-peas/6143-54.html  I've covered this problem there.

david...it's 100% NOT your advice, that was faultless...have been playing sherlock...look at my new thread....don't tell me off too much pleeease

 

Sorry, rosemummy, it wasn't my intention to upset you,,,trouble was that I was having a pretty rubbish day anyway and the sight of your dead sweet peas did nothing to improve it.

Although sweet pea growing holds very little mystery for me anymore, I was finding it increasingly frustrating to be unable to tell you exactly why yours were failing.

Anyway, upwards & onwards.

Monty isn't very good with sweet peas and loads of other stuff, OL. As you progress along this learning curve, you will spot a lot of other rubbish and may wonder if your admiration may have been misplaced.

Anyway hope your ankle soon gets better.

Don't know if anyone has heard of it, but heard a good tip from a top show rose grower today, he swears by 'Uncle Tom's rose tonic'.

Anyone addicted?

Well, I'm addicted...and if I didn't purposely try to avoid the chat threads, I would be in need of therapy.

I start this thread in a light-hearted way. I wonder if any of us worry that visiting these pages is becoming a serious addiction.

When I used the (now closed) Archers' forum, people used to make no secret of the fact they would get up in the middle of the night to read messages.

One particular worried poster even visited his doctor to discuss the matter, because he was turning down (much needed) overtime at work.
