Is this just a massive weed?

Hello Forkers - April edition

Posted: 02/04/2017 at 18:25

Hello folks   I'm completely kn*ckered ........ splitting perennials, digging up and shifting stuff, 


We had our slow-roast lamb while we watched the men's boat race   Didn't Cambridge women do well 


Now OH is washing up and tidying the kitchen while I slump on the sofa with a pint of Adnam's bitter 


Yvie - just saw your other post ........ maybe you're going to get two for the price of one

Split them up and repot them both. 


Mine don't go outside until June.  

Help I think they have sent the wrong clematis

Lucky you 


If you plant it in the garden, remember to restrict its roots.

That's  not Purpura plena elegans  - it looks like a C. alpina, possibly Francis Rivis (can't see the flower centre but it's that colour). 


I love C. alpinas and have several......but I also love Purpurea plena elegans and I have that also.

I think this unusually dry spring may be causing rhubarb to run to flower  ... give them a couple of buckets full of water today and another two next weekend, whether it rains in the meantime or not. 

Questions about growing sweet corn

Posted: 02/04/2017 at 14:52

Have you bought your sweetcorn seeds yet?  If not, look out for a variety called 'Swift'.  It's been developed to do well in the UK's shorter growing period ... we've been very successful with it a couple of times now 


Edited to add:  Just noticed that you've got Sundance - they're also good in our climate  ... I hope they do as well for you as Swift does for us.

Wild flowers next to fruit and veg

Posted: 02/04/2017 at 13:20

I love white sprouting broccoli ........ a real 'gourmet veg' it has a more delicate flavour than purple and is more tender - not like calabrese really.  Enjoy
