Well, it has to be said, nothing like a post from yours truly for killing a thread stone dead!

Victorian Colossal climbing peas in pots

Good luck with those, Simon......although I would have some reservations about growing so many robust peas in pots.

Btw, I've grown a similar Victorian variety 'Ne Plus Ultra' in the open ground and they cropped really well.

Joining this thread a tad late.

However, about four years ago I had an extraction of a upper left pre-molar. Speaking as someone who was never particularly nervous of dentists, I can only describe the experience as sheer butchery and ever since I have suffered from neuralgia, due to associated nerve damage.

No consolation to me, but shortly after the dentist was admitted  to a psychiatric hospital where he committed suicide.

I'm pleased to say that I'm now with a young lady dentist who I trust implicitly.....unfortunately during a recent visit, she tells me she's pregnant and will soon be taking maternity leave.  

Something is eating my Potato plants!!

I'm almost sure this is slug or snail damage....is there any slime trail evidence?

GD - Good luck with your sweet peas.

For the record,  I consider  growing in containers very much a second best to being grown in deeply dug beds in the garden. You're right about growing in baskets.....far too much of a faff.

Suppose it counts  Monty Don has tweeted:

"Nigel is eight today. A star-studded guest list is being jetted in to help celebrate aboard his super yacht, currently moored in the pond."

Still milking it!

Ignore this, just experimenting with image sizes.
