Good luck with them, linzy.....to post a pic: 1) click on the little green tree, on the taskbar 2) click 'select' in the 'select files to be uploaded' 3) choose your pic from your pc 3) then click 'upload'...(it can sometimes take a little while) then click 'save' when it has uploaded.

Anyone living in the Burton-upon-Trent/Lichfield/Stafford areas may like to know that this and a few other places locally where I like to see & take a few pics of bluebells.

Planting out Sweet Peas

Not sure I understand, sweet peas are extremely hardy (will shrug off temps of  -10c with no problem at all) so why are they indoors to start with and why do they need hardening-off?

Well, I think phostrogen takes some beating for plants in pots. For sturdy growth and good flowerimg it is excellent.   For edibles in pots fish blood amd bone and seaweed extract.

 

Yes, I would second that, Verdun.

Beetroot

As I've said several times before, each beetroot seed contains 3 or 4 potential seedlings, so best not to sow too many.

Perhaps not what you want to hear, but right now when the sap is rising really isn't the best time to move any trees......much better carried out when they are dormant.
