Wierd Aubergines

Posted: 29/09/2014 at 15:46

There are loads of different varieties of aubergine.  Have a look here scroll down and see just a few.

They all taste good and recipes are interchangeable.

Drizzle here now - but I've still had the sprinkler on the broccoli and runner beans for 20 minutes - the soil is bone dry.  I've given the broccoli some chicken manure pellets too. 

I also picked a big bunch of Swiss chard to have with sausages and baked sweet potatoes for supper

On reflection, think Nut's right - Lonicera

I'm just obsessing about that variegated C. horizontalis at the moment

Absolutely nowhere to put it .... too much shade

It looks interesting

but I can't see a clue as to why Hogroasts plants are poorly, other than drought - it does say that established plants can cope with a little drought, but to me 'a little drought' is a contradiction in terms

Muscle weighs more than fat apparently!

How do I get to the next stage from cuttings to fully grown plant

Posted: 29/09/2014 at 12:32

I'd put all of those cuttings outside in a sheltered spot.  Possibly rig up some sort of cold frame (some bricks or blocks with an old window on top - lots of ventilation) to keep the worst of the rain and snow off over the winter. 

They won't be happy indoors.
