Hello folks!  Good cake Stacey   

Let's see if the forum is working for me .... 

Advice about crocosmia needed

Posted: 23/09/2013 at 06:31

I was trying desperately to remember 'O' level biology and how corms develop - then I checked Wiki - here we are, including stuff about crocosmia 

I think that your corms might flower next year - give them some FB&B and see what happens.  You've got nothing to lose have you 


Giant Peas?

Hello again folks -  garden's considerably tidier than it was but still more tidying to be done - however there's still lots more runner beans growing, courgettes too.  I need to find some sort of box or crate to store plastic pots in; they're stacking up in a corner next to the grow house and if we get strong winds they'll be all over the show.  

We've had roast lamb shoulder, mashed potatoes, runner beans and gravy for supper - when we've digested that lot there's some fresh-picked raspberries waiting for us.

I slow-roasted lots of cut up Soldacki tomatoes today in a little olive oil and now they're in the freezer, to bring some sunshine to some meals in the winter.

Mulch or fleece for the winter
