Glad things went well for you, Mike 

Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 10/05/2014 at 08:33

Thanks, rosemummy......on reflection, perhaps I shouldn't have said anything. The request was from Eagle SPs, probably on of the best sweet pea specialist growers in the country, who are local to me and good friends.

They have a long list and in all probability (if I accept) can take years to happen....depending on the number of their new introductions.

I'm familiar with most of the origins of most of Eagle's names, most are the names of family members & friends.

18"?? That's about twice the size of mine 

Do we get a family and friends discount on David K Sweet  Peas?? 

I've already told to mention my name when you order from from Eagle SPs and you may get a discount. 

My first year in the vegetable garden

That is one very impressive veg garden and one who a seasoned professional would be proud of.....I can see all the hard graft!

Thanks, OL....of course, I'll need to be charging for this stuff when I'm famous.

Understand it's just a tiny bud and the plants are little more than 18" tall.

My first SP flower buds are showing and I've been asked if I would like my name to be registered for a sweet pea to be named after me....I'm honoured.

Tomatoes - possibly my second mistake of the year!!!!

I would say you're making really good progress, OL and should be proud of yourself.

Carrots not germinating

Posted: 09/05/2014 at 21:16

Hi, KEF...do you come here often?

Parsnips are notoriously difficult to germinate and certainly it doesn't pay to use anything other than fresh seed.

*One trick you can use is to pre-germinate the seed in wallpaper paste, then sow the seed by piping the gel along your seed drill.

* I would just say that I done this successfully years ago, but I'm not sure if there any detrimental chemicals in today's paste.....perhaps worth a trial for someone.
