Talkback: Growing cucumbers

Posted: 10/07/2012 at 18:45
I'm also growing cucumbers in the greenhouse, last year I grew them outside. Like you it has been great having the greenhouse to keep on gardening, as I write this it is pouring down again. Tomatoes I had in hanging baskets have got blight because of this weather, I wish now I had taken them into the greenhouse. The greenhouse tomatoes are doing really well though. It does seem so unfair, when you think of the countries that are desperate for rain and never see it and we have more than we know what to do with.

Annoying Advert

Can anything be done about that annoying advert for clas ohlson. Your curser only has to touch it and it folds out all over the site blocking everything out stopping you from clicking on Blog or Offers ect.

What is your kind of garden?

Hi Nola and welcome. Everyone on here are friendly and some are very knowledgeable about gardening which is a great help. I am like you, I find it hard to ignore bargin plants or plants that I haven't got, then wonder where I will put them, I can always find room something else. Here is picture of some of my summer bedding. This picture is from last years display, unfortunately this year it doesn't look so bright, because of all the rain everything has been so battered.

 We are all hoping for some good weather just hope it comes soon.

I heard today on the radio that we are not going to get any summer weather until September/October, if this rain keeps up we will be growing webbed feet.

| have these in my front garden border. They are really lovely, and they come in such lovely colours. Some of mine are in shade and some do get the sun and both have done really well. I got mine from Lidl a couple of years ago and they are well established now.

It has been a nice day here, quite warm. Did have a few spits and spots of rain this morning while I was in the garden but luckily it didn't come to anything. I didn't risk putting washing on the line as there were a few dark clouds. Geoff, fancy a man being able to multitask!!!

At last I can see the sunshine, it is lovely here today quite warm. I've potted on my Lavenders that came on Friday and they are now in the greenhouse enjoying the warm sunshine. I wonder if any of that heatwave in the USA will blow this way.  

July in your garden...

Alstroemeria

Of all the plants in my garden the Alstroemeria have not been affected at all by this dreadful weather. They are all standing upright and flowering their socks off. Lets here it for the Alstroes!!!

Rain, rain and more rain in Bournemouth. It has poured down all day yesterday and today is the same. My poor plants have really taken a battering, we have had just one day of sunshine this week.
