Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Good luck with them, Sunflower Lady....although you could have sown the seed directly where they are to flower now.

I note that Monty Don sowed his seeds indoors last Friday.....so I guess that's  the official way.

 My camellia 'Water lily' stands about 8ft tall and is absolutely covered with buds from top to bottom, so in a few days it should be a picture.

Cucumber planting advice

Yes, 18 inches to 2ft apart would be about right...although for the life of me (unless you are a commercial grower) I can't understand why any want more than one plant, given the amount of fruits they produce.

It is important to make a mound of soil to plant them on, as they are very prone to stem rot in the early days of planting out. This is to avoid accumulations of water around the stem, which gets extremely cold during the night.

As someone who is aware of how much a good camera lens can cost, when we see the process in this clip, it's easy to understand why.

While I think these represent really good value for money and can be very useful, temperatures do fluctuate wildly and they are subject to condensation.

Just like to say, that I use Vitax Q4 as a top dressing when planting out my own sweet peas...although (as previously stated) blood fish & bone meal will do just fine.
