Breather Bags/Air Pruning

Hi Sussexslanter

I think these would serve your purpose

Reads are usually happy to give advice by email so you could ask if they think they'll do what you want them to.

So was last winter Stanley - but I hope this winter's going to be colder than last - too many slugs, bugs and aphids kept breeding through last winter - we had battalions of them last spring!   We need some sharp frosts!

On it's way Lily,

Here you are Lesley,

Certainly Chicky - Cheers!

Pdoc - of course you can, but it'll be DIY

There you are KEF - Cheers!  You and Fg had the last lime between you so I'm having a G&T

What is this cute little beauty please?

I'd say Alyssum

Well, quite a successful day here.  A load of washing dry out on the line - now it's all ironed and put away.  Some paperwork attended to and the kitchen tidied.  Shopping done at the farm shop.  Fruit cake made for refuelling OH as and when needed over the next few days, and a big beef casserole is simmering in the oven for supper in an hour's time.  Potatoes peeled for mash and Savoy cabbage prepped. 

I'm feeling very virtuous 

Now my feet are up and I'm watching Miss Marple sort things out on a Caribbean island   Fg, join me, it's making me feel all warm and relaxed.

Mojito anyone?

Unknown plant on GW?

I agree - the first one is a Thalictrum and the other one is the double Kerria Japonica 'Flore Pleno'

You don't have to wait for a frost - you can do it now

Plant them fairly deep, as you would with other brassicas, and pinch the tops out - that way they'll bush out. 

Looking forward to seeing them in the spring

Might be - and overcrowding.  I'd be planting mine out in the garden about 12" apart.

What a shame.  Have you got any left that still have roots on?  If so I'd plant them out in the garden in a sunny spot.
