I absolutely agree with Kitty - don't start feeding until the first truss of fruits have set

entering the competitions

Posted: 01/04/2016 at 13:24

I enter all the competitions using my laptop - perfectly easy - never had a problem.  I've also just entered one using my iPhone - perfectly straightforward.

If you're having problems contact the website team - contact details at the foot of this page.

hedge plants on roof planters

Posted: 01/04/2016 at 11:41

It's not the weight of the plants - it's the weight of the containers full of damp loamy compost which can be very heavy.  You need to consult a structural engineer if you don't already know the load-bearing capability of the roof terrace.

I'm quite glad today is a baking day rather than a gardening day - I'm nice and warm and the birds are very happy that I'm not out there disturbing them - they're tucking into the feeders very hungrily

Beetroot plants

I'd use the leaves in a salad or stir fry rather than throw them away but definitely sow fresh for this season.

New to the forum - hi!

Beetroot doesn't like too much nitrogen in the soil, otherwise it grows loads of leaves and doesn't bulk out the root.  It likes to be grown quickly, in warm moist soil so don't sow it too early.

BL - yes that's the place.  Ma has a lovely view across the common to the harbour - it's a place she's always loved

Hosta -  thanks ((hugs)) .  And drink a couple of large glasses of water - sounds like a bit of dehydration.  Many headaches are due to that rather than anything else. 

Topbird - OH looked out of the window for the swan I told him was on the lawn.
