Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 24/07/2014 at 23:34

Monty isn't very good with sweet peas and loads of other stuff, OL. As you progress along this learning curve, you will spot a lot of other rubbish and may wonder if your admiration may have been misplaced.

Anyway hope your ankle soon gets better.

Don't know if anyone has heard of it, but heard a good tip from a top show rose grower today, he swears by 'Uncle Tom's rose tonic'.

Anyone addicted?

Well, I'm addicted...and if I didn't purposely try to avoid the chat threads, I would be in need of therapy.

I start this thread in a light-hearted way. I wonder if any of us worry that visiting these pages is becoming a serious addiction.

When I used the (now closed) Archers' forum, people used to make no secret of the fact they would get up in the middle of the night to read messages.

One particular worried poster even visited his doctor to discuss the matter, because he was turning down (much needed) overtime at work.

Deadheading

There is definitely a correct way to deadhead and although I may be a bit slap-happy in some things I do in the garden, I do deadhead with care.

To save a lot of explanation, this RHS advice about covers it:
