Can anyone help me identify this plant (possibly a weed?)

Posted: 10/06/2017 at 07:36

There are websites ... one here     


http://theseedsite.co.uk/seedlings.html 


but the best way of learning is practice.  


Sowing your seeds in rows or defined patches and label them will also help. 


And of course, don't be shy of asking us ... we're always happy to help

And if you have too many plants pot them up and give them to your friends and neighbours. It's what we all do

All those tomato and melon  and squash plants need to be in their own individual pots now. Good multipurpose compost and no additional fertiliser until they have produced flowers and the first fruits have begun to appear.

Honeysuckle in a pot

Posted: 09/06/2017 at 16:04

Honeysuckles need deep cool root runs which is why they don't often do well in containers ... raised beds are better because their roots can reach  down then spread out and as long as the raised beds are big enough, and kept well watered they do better


I give mine Fish Blood and Bone in the early spring and some clematis food a bit later in mid April/early May and as long as I keep them well watered they seem happy and flower well.
