Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 13/02/2015 at 18:35

Hi, Denno

Yes, they will be fine to be grown in the same place this year. It isn't specific to just sweet peas, crop rotation is advisable for all crops to avoid build-up of soil borne pests & disease.

HELLO FORKERS!

Thanks. I'm at a total loss to understand how anyone could find him anything other than totally repugnant.....and I presume mega rich on the back of it!

A little while ago I asked the question of you lovelies, 'why would anyone buy grated cheese or bagged salad leaves from a supermarket'.

Now, I would ask why on earth would anyone watch Keith Lemon on TV?

I agree with both and with the benefit of hindsight I probably wouldn't have bought mine.

With its narrow blade width of around 9 inches it is quite useful for weeding/hoeing  between rows and is also very lightweight....having said that, I would rather have the (almost) £400 purchase cost.

Nothing compares with peace & tranquillity when using my trusty old spade & fork.

I wouldn't call it 'hard work'. but they aren't suitable for ground that hasn't already been worked. I use mine mainly for keeping weeds down between rows....even then it leaps around a lot.

Given the loose stones flying around, I think I would be wearing some eye protection.....eyesight is very precious & can be lost in a trice.

Btw, I have a Mantis tiller with a Honda 4 stroke engine.

 More snowdrops, for those who like them.

"Been on your belly again DAVID. "

I'm wondering if you take yours lying down, Rb.

Btw, I'm not a 'Forker'.
