Onion plant

Posted: 16/05/2017 at 14:50

You'll see when they have swollen bulbs ... they begin to push out of the ground ... 


take a look here - if you look at the onions still in the ground you can see the bulbs.


 


Just keep them weeded and watered as Obelixx has said  ... no need to count leaves

We love gravadlax 


Hurrah!   I've fitted all the tomatoes and courgettes into the little greenhouse ... I'll leave the doors open a good bit and the roof too so they don't swelter ... 


OH would love a 3D printer ........

A photo would be really helpful jeffjarvis ...  the uploading to this site has a bit of a glitch, but start by clicking on the camera icon ... if the photo doesn't upload reducing it in size usually works

The wind's a bit swirly today, I think umbrellas and parasols may end up doing a Mary Poppins ... if they won't fit into the little greenhouse then they'll have to go into the studio overnight ... just for the duration of the promised deluge ............ OH won't have to mind .......... they'll be in my bit of space 


Besides, he's drawing different leaves at the moment ................it'll be helpful won't it

Not really Hosta, thanks all the same ......... but I think we might be building up to a thunderstorm ... it's warm enough to leave the toms outside in a sheltered spot, but I don't want them getting bashed about by the rain and hail.  I'll have to try to find room for them at night in the little lean-to greenhouse somehow ... unless they can go in one of your polytunnels Hosta ? 

Help! White sticky substance on shrub leaves

Posted: 16/05/2017 at 12:52

The centre of the shrub looks a bit congested ... I would snip out some of the older stems and any dead ones, getting a bit of air flow in there too.

Remember last week when I was complaining about the cold?


This is getting a tad ridiculous now ...

Help! White sticky substance on shrub leaves

Two different things.


The first looks like some sort of powdery mildew, often arising when plants are suffering from drought.  Give them a jolly good soaking.


The second is colloquially known as Cuckoo Spit as it occurs about the time the cuckoo arrives here.  Inside each little lump of foam you'll find a single froghopper larva - it won't damage your plants and will feed the wild birds.  Nothing to worry about.  

What is your weather like? (2)

Obelixx says:

Much too sunny and hot for parsley and chervil.  I have parsley in a trough in the shade and will do the same for chervil.   Needs to be a hot and sunny herb.


See original post

 Ah ............ I was thinking of sorrel too, but that won't like it hot either.  


Greek basil?  Summer savory?
