Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurve sugared almonds ......... they might just be my luxury on my Desert Island 

Which flower/plant to use?

Posted: 14/04/2017 at 11:28

Three petunias would be plenty.  They often come in little packs of six but you could plant the left over ones in a pot of compost.

When the flowers begin to die and turn brown nip them off and that will encourage the plant to keep flowering for longer.

Let us know how they get on

Hello SGL   Have a lovely Easter yourself 

Digging Up Potatoes.... found an EGG!!

Posted: 14/04/2017 at 10:08

I expect it was stolen from someone's chicken coop and buried there for later by a fox.  

It won't grow into anything ... it's likely to be addled (rotten) and if you break it you'll experience a real stinky smell of sulpherous rotten egg.

Veg Question

Posted: 14/04/2017 at 10:03

Swiss chard doesn't mind a bit of shade, but it will need watering if the soil is dry because of the trees.  

Dwarf French beans are pretty easy to grow too, and don't mind a bit of shade ... again they'll need watering if the soil is very dry.  

You could grow 'cut and come again' salad stuff in a raised bed on the patio which should keep you supplied all summer without too much effort.

Hi Landgirl  - if it won't upload try reducing size of pic. 

Grass repair

The 4 in 1 contains a weed killer which may well affect newly germinated grass seed.  

If you're going to re-seed don't use a 4 or 3 in one ... I find that a solution of seaweed fertiliser watered on is a good pick- me-up for lawns.
