Ommthree.....and a jolly fine old fashioned flower they are too! Normally I cut mine by about half of their height when they are starting to open.

Btw, Sweet Williams are related to Pinks......so named because their petals seem to have been trimmed with pinking shears.

Beetroot problems...

Beetroot (along with all root crops) grow better sown in-situ....very little is gained by starting them off under glass.

Growing Sweet Peas

Hello, Emma. I have a fair grasp of growing sweet peas here in the UK, but in the absence of any knowledge of your climate, I'm not sure what advice to offer.

I do have a friend who emigrated to Cyprus a couple of years ago......despite her best efforts, she hasn't managed to grow them successfully.

David - its the environment you work in and the people you work with that makes the difference to any job.  Are your work mates a good lot?

 

Riff-raff of the sort you would never believe!

Why the sad face David, because you don't enjoy it or because it's unskilled?  Nothing at all wrong with that as long as you are happy in your work 

Now I'm worried.....people are starting to take me serious!  eek smiley

Words? Oh yes, some can come very close to home. Matt Munro's 'Walk away' is very poignant for moi.
