Yes, KEF......some old names there, even before my time. My own interest was probably in the mid-sixties.

Been around this gardening malarkey for longer than I realise sometimes.

Scott - that was the one & only church pic I had on file.   I do like to see churchyard pics and we do have some really nice examples locally......even stained glass windows are an art in themselves.

This  picture was taken in late evening sunlight when the shadows were long and is of the  oldest building in my town......it's the 12th century church named 'Old Chancel'.

Oh this thread is right up my street, Scott and congratulations for the excellent work you do.

Churchyards have  a tremendous potential for taking nice photos and you have inspired me to get my camera out and visit one or two.  

Sweet pea heads dropping off

Hi, Try hard.....I've answered your query on the other thread, but I see you have found the correct diagnosis from the Eagle SP website......they are the experts.

Good luck, the problem will soon resolve itself.

Ah, gotcha....hadn't seen it.

Anyway, sweet pea 'bud-drop' isn't all that serious and will sort itself out when the nights get warmer.

It usually happens at the start of the flowering period and is mainly caused by variation in temperature i.e. hot days and cold nights.

It helps not to use cold water direct from the tap....let it stand for 24hrs if possible.

Beautiful, KEF...the first one seems to have a nursery in the background.

Could have sworn I heard the twittering of birds when I looked at the second one!
