Wallflowers

Perhaps worth a mention....be careful where you source your wallflowers from, as being a member of the brassica family it's possible to import club root into your garden.

How dare you, Frank!  I can only suppose that you've activated the 'ignore button'.

So we may be reunited you will need to un-ignore me again.

Click on 'My settings' (top right of the page) Scroll down to 'Members I am ignoring'....you'll probably see my name in the box. All you need to do is remove it.

 

I post this although I've never ignored anyone deliberately or unintentionally.

 

Just a thought, Franks isn't going to be able to read this if he's ignoring me.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Thank you, PWP....it is nice to be appreciated.

I'm not really surprised to hear of the excellent germination rate of those old sweet peas....although viability does normally decrease with age.

Interestingly, there is a heritage variety of veg pea named Ne Plus Ultra  on the market (and an excellent pea it is too) that was widely grown in Victorian times. A few years ago a few seeds were found at the back of an old cupboard and have been able to be reintroduced.

They fell out of favour because needed substantial sticks, as they were 6/7feet tall.

Gardening Christmas Present

Callum, with respect, a little improvisation with a cushion may be required. I can confirm that they are very well made & sturdy and well up to the job.

Edit: Perhaps a piece of thick foam rubber?

Well, raised beds immediately spring to mind, although a tad expensive for a Christmas present. Meantime, if she doesn't already have one, these are a boon:

That's just a few in a cold greenhouse, Gg....have some others in a coldframe. They are different varieties, & have  carefully labelled each one.
