Growing 2 tomato's in a pot?

Posted: 02/04/2017 at 18:11

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. 

Help I think they have sent the wrong clematis

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 

What would you plant here?

Posted: 02/04/2017 at 13:13

I'd go for hardy geraniums 

Tick infestation

Posted: 02/04/2017 at 13:11

Hi Lorraine 


That sounds nasty ... I have no experience of ticks in lawns ... here in Norfolk they tend to lurk in long grass and taller vegetation.


I just consulted google and found this http://www.bada-uk.org/tick-control/tick-control-domestic-environment  but you may well have seen it already.


Hopefully someone else will have some more ideas.


Good luck!
