Root Trainers for Sweet Peas?

Posted: 16/09/2014 at 09:13

Morning, Amy

Those 'individual peat pots' you mention are unsuitable as they don't have enough depth to accommodate sweet pea's very deep root system.

There are quite a few different types on the market.....I use those resembling black polythene bags, sold by Eagle Sweet Peas: http://www.eaglesweetpeas.co.uk/gallery.php?g=8 These need to be removed before planting out.

You may prefer biodegradable types, if so, these may suit you better:  http://www.amazon.co.uk/Arthur-Bowers-Fyba-Tubes-Onions/dp/B00E3C3G6G

I take it I have redeemed myself?

Now, I must get myself moving towards some work.

PS. Lily, you see, we do like the same music.

Interesting that you say that your Pa made his pile modernising the railways, Lyn. This happened quite a lot at the time i.e. fortunes were made  laying North Sea gas-pipe lines for instance.

Yours truly was on the payroll of BR for life.....which accounts for my present frugal existence & downtrodden state.

Unconditional hugs for you always.....BUT, couldn't disagree more. It's just down to personal preferences surely...you approved of my posting of Clare de Lune.

As for Strictly, I have to confess to being a fan of Dave Arch & his band and probably in love with Hayley Sanderson (his female vocalist). I'm amazed by the standard of covers they turn in, week after week.
