Growing Sweet Peas

I've made my own for my other sweet peas, that are still quite small and nowhere near flowering, 12 ft bamboo canes tied together 

 

I understand, OL, something 6 to 8ft will be perfectly adequate.

My previous post was just a general one really.

Oh, btw....Monty Don won't be cutting his for another month.

Perhaps it might be worth mentioning here.....please don't me lulled into buying those silly little, fancy obelisks (sometimes made of willow or metal) which are not much more than a metre high and being sold as sweet pea supports......they are just totally inadequate.

Looking for an unusual sized shed - 3ft x 4ft

Fiona - There outlets who just supply sheds and others who make and supply them.

I think you'll find those who make & supply, will make one to your own requirements....we have at least three in my home town who will do this.

HELLO FORKERS!

Been to the dentist today.....why oh why, do they always say 'have a good rinse', while you're lying flat on your back??  

 

David, you are supposed to sit up before rinsing!

Lovely evening, we ate supper outside. Not as muggily hot as yesterday.

Verdun, you mentioned taking a selfie, you haven't taken any photos of your garden for ages, are you intending sending any this year? Please.

 

Yep, but they have the rise & fall peddle....perhaps if they said I'll just straighten you up, then have a rinse.

They look really healthy, OL.....perhaps my only reservation would be if their supports have enough height.

Enjoy the fragrance.

Phew!!! We got there....I knew we would.

Thanks for the hug. I can go back to sleep now.

PS. Remember to keep cutting them and don't let them go to seed.

Plumless plum tree

Depends to some extent how old your plum tree was when you bought it, Lizzie. Plums, cherries, pear trees usually start bearing fruit in their fourth year.

For anyone wishing to visit GWL travelling by train, perhaps you should know that the station needed is Birmingham International and is a very long walk from the venue......although some of it has moving walkways.

That's unless it's changed since I was last there.
