When to plant melons?

Posted: 14/01/2017 at 22:45

We need to know how much space you have indoors in good light to grow your plants on before planting out.  How big will your plants be able to get before planting out?


Melons need a long and warm growing season to get to produce fruit in time to ripen. 


Im not sure that it is possible to get melons to produce and ripen fruit outside in the UK.

BL, everyone who's had this lurgy seems to be suffering from painful ribs now - even my foody friend who lives in Provence is suffering. Hope we're all better soon ((hugs)). 


DD ((hugs)) enjoy the weekend.


 Sweet dreams all.

Where are they going to live? Greenhouse? Hot or cold? Or a traditional hotbed?


where will you be sowing them?

That's lovely Joyce


It's not just flooding that's caused by a storm surge http://www.eadt.co.uk/news/man_dies_after_cliff_collapse_on_the_beach_at_thorpeness_1_4849427

And although I said 'him' it may very likely be a 'her' and probably pregnant!!!

Get rid of him - turn the compost and dampen it - rats like dry homes - give the side of the bin a wallop with a spade every time you walk past or add something - they like being quiet and peaceful.  Don't put any potato peelings etc in there for the time being - they're like caviar to rats.

I remove the old leaves just as the stems of the new flowers buds are lengthening.  This way they get the protection from the old leaves for as long as possible in the winter, but I'm able to see the new flowers when they appear.  Just have to do it carefully.   It won't be long now - Tutu and Mrs Betty Ranicar have some fantastic buds

I wouldn't - I'd find a bigger pot somehow, or use a binbag full of compost, or even a cardboard box.
