Help with mystery plant

Posted: 08/04/2016 at 20:59

We all get spells in our life when our garden runs away from us for a while. 

 Jasmine is quite an amenable beauty and usually reacts really well to being cut back.  A feed of Fish, Blood and Bone will help it along

Help with mystery plant

Hi Disponded

It's one of the summer flowering jasmines - beautifully perfumed flowers.

Someone may even be able to tell you which one ...

It does need a bit of taming doesn't it

Hello Nanniemo - should have welcomed you aboard - hope we see more of you and your gardening

Overwhelmed with Nasturtiums!

The trailing ones would be better planted out near a fence or on a bank  - somewhere they can tumble and scramble - they can get very 'long' -  6 ft or so. 

The non trailing ones will be fine in the baskets.

Hi Snowy

Sorry to hear about your sad loss.

You can buy No Mess bird food which will not sprout.  Don't use the fat balls - I find there's much less waste from the suet cakes and blocks - the birds seem to prefer the ones with mealworms in them  http://shopping.rspb.org.uk/bird-food/suet-and-fat/suet-cakes-blocks.html

Hope that helps

Oriental leafy veg definitely benefit from being sown after the longest day - I tried Pak Choy several times without success - they just bolted.  Then after researching online I made a sowing in July - success!

I like some of the leafy mustards too - especially the red leaved ones - they look good in the garden as well as being great in a salad or stirfry.

Of course, if any of them do bolt, you can still use the chopped up stem and flowers in a stirfry - very tasty

 Pricked mine out into modules today - planted them nice and deep so they're not long and lanky any more
