HELLO FORKERS!

Not my Monty, Rb  ...a rather contentious issue and Mr D has been done to death hereabouts already.

Sweet peas have succumbed to powdery mildew again

Powdery Mildew can be kept in check by a monthly spray of  'Systhane' (available from most GCs) applied from June until the end of flowering.

Dry conditions and lack of air circulation are the main causes of mildew in SPs.

Poor air circulation is usually as a result of planting too densely. Dry conditions can be helped by watering the foliage regularly.

 This picture made me smile. Monty Don interviewing Derek Heathcote (boss of Eagle Sweet Peas) at Chelsea. It just happens that Derek can't stand Mr D.....but it doesn't show, does it?

Of course you can transfer your pics to 'photobucket' 'phtobox' or the like.....there you will able to edit them i.e. rotating them and many other things.

Doing this also simplifies transferring then here via 'the green tree'.

They were picked before they were ready, or perhaps they were mange tout.

Apols for messing wiv your bee, KEF. 

TBH I'm not sure if the original wasn't better, inasmuch as it was possible to enlarge the whole shot by clicking on it.

What is the best soil tester kit?

Whoops! ......just read a few of the reviews and some are not too flattering.

As I said, this isn't the one I have, so perhaps it would be advisable to pay a little more for better quality. However, it does offer another solution.

Hi, Ms Magoo

I use a meter myself....less faffing-about, easy to read & permanent.

This isn't the one I use, but would be quite adequate and I'm sure you'll agree very reasonably priced: www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001AGRK42?keywords=soil%20tester&qid=1439494480&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1

Have no problem with grammatical & punctuation gaffs...cept when I see them, I fear the prof may be attempting a comeback.
