For me, dance of the evening was Helen George.

Ainsley for the chop this week......and probably Bruno, if he doesn't wash his mouth out.

By sowing now, Monty Don is contradicting what he has said previously about sowing sweet pea seeds in autumn, dismissing it as a waste of time ....but hey-ho!

As I've said lots of times on the other thread, there is a good case to be made for making two sowings, one in the autumn and another in the spring.

What is a fact, that plants from autumn sowings are more robust and give a head start at the start of the growing season.

Chestnut - Rhododendrons thrive best with a Ph of between 4.5 & 6.0 (7 being neutral)......within that range lots of fruit, flowers & veg would live quite happily.
