The changing colour of Hydrangeas

Posted: 02/08/2014 at 17:57

Everything's been a bit early this year - my cyclamen hederafolium are blooming already.

And you've had them blooming for a month - that sounds like good value to me - I can't think of many shrubs that stay in bloom for a month.

If you use the right sort, it's supposed to set pretty hard, but of course, there's no accounting for tastes or teeth!  It's what the builders use nowadays to fill around replacement windows and pipework, so it ought to be pretty tough.  

I've read a tip on the internet which says to stop rodents put wire wool inside the hole before filling with the expanding foam.

Although they like well-drained soil they're quite thirsty, especially at flowering time, so don't forget to water in the summer

There are several heirloom tomatoes producing heart-shaped fruits, including the Pink Oxheart and Anna Russian.  

I grew Anna Russian last year - a fabulous tomato  http://tatianastomatobase.com/wiki/Anna_Russian

Nasturtiums

Posted: 02/08/2014 at 14:28

They don't really 'spread everywhere' in an invasive way - after all, they're not hardy so as soon as there's a frost they die.  They may self seed but the seedlings are so easily identifiable they're easy to remove if you don't want them.

Nasturtiums

The one on the left is in a corner - does it get a little less direct sunlight than the one on the right? - it looks as if it does - my nasturtiums in containers are struggling a bit in this heat - the ones that get a little more shade are noticeably better than the others - I've moved them all into the shade in the hope that they'll recover a bit.
