Talkback: Christmas compost

Posted: 25/05/2015 at 12:11

OK, somehow I'd got it into my head that you had one of those hot bins too!  

I've got tomato seedlings coming up in my dahlia pots this year 'cos I mixed some homemade compost with the MPC

Welcome!  It's good to see another East Anglian Eric's Mum   I'm from Suffolk, transplanted into Norfolk  

 

Thinking of upsetting the neighbors?

We grew broad beans and Victoria plums in the tiny inner-city front garden at our last place  - we were often asked what those pretty black and white flowers were!

To be fair Edd, it's not good practice to put bread or any cooked food into a 'normal' garden compost bin - it's almost guaranteed to attract rats!

Putting it into one of your Hot Composters would be fine of course

Perhaps rather than 'cannot' the instructions should say 'should not'

Broad beans - should they look like this?

Did you sow them there or have they been grown in pots and planted out?

HELLO FORKERS!

OH would love a sarrecenia - we saw some in a big tub at a nursery near Nut, and he was smitten - I wonder if we could grow them here - what do you think?

(It's good policy to encourage the Undergardener to take an interest, don't you find?)

Oooh, have a lovely drive Hosta - OH and I stayed close to Boscastle for our first Cornish holiday together Lovely area.  We'll be just a bit further down the coast later in the year

Wonky - lots of girlish giggling and shrieking just up the hill around 1am - think they'd staggered home. 

HELLO FORKERS!

It's all over now Wonky - it closed with the Foo Fighters last night - we couldn't really hear it well enough to enjoy it.  They should either turn it up or down - half way is no good at all.

Norwith will be empty today - they've all put yellow and green football shirts on and got on the train to Wembley - hope there's some people left to to to the Food Fair at the farm shop ...

HELLO FORKERS!

Planting Lilies - when?

Posted: 25/05/2015 at 08:51

I think they'll be fine - the ones in the ground are getting their roots down, and of course, it has been a bit chilly - they'll get going when the weather warms up.

What do others think?
