Pea shoots

Hi Clawdia

All you need to know here http://www.golightlygardens.com/how-to-grow-pea-shoots-quickly-and-cheaply/

as she says, don't buy 'proper' pea seed - use marrowfat peas from the grocer.  Much cheaper

Haven't seen any signs of flowering bluebells yet ...

It would be interesting to see some photos as it develops.

Layered bulb pots

Posted: 24/03/2016 at 07:05

I give the pots a good feed and water and put them in a quiet corner to die off.  If there are tulips in there I  make sure they're in a warm and sunny spot.  Then I pot them all up again with fresh MPC in the autumn.  

Tullips (other than species types) don't last many seasons, but they'll do well for a couple of years.

If you want to use the pots elsewhere just extract the mass of roots, bulbs and compost carefully and pop them into a similar sized cheap plastic pot for the duration.

I like greek basil too Chicky - and it seems more able to cope with our climate

Good morning Chicky and everyone as you arrive   G'day Pat

You're right Panda, I was sound asleep when you said that! 

Chicky - I'm ignoring the weather forecast too - and even if it pours with rain all weekend I shall spread newspaper over the dining table and sow seeds - that's gardening

 

Wot, no basil!

I usually see plenty of pots of basil seedlings in our local garden centre, but much later on, when they're also selling the tender bedding plants - not now - far too early.

Pest or not?

The sound to me like slow release fertiliser capsules which are routinely added to a lot of multi-purpose composts.  Nothing to worry about.

Are these weeds?

It may spread a bit, but it's a pretty garden plant and is easily removed if it grows where you don't want it.

It's certainly not one to worry about
