Just a quick question

Hi Michael

What's it going to grow in (container or bed, and what sort of soil) and what's it going to grow up? Fence, trellis, wall ???

What sort of climber did you have before?  Do you want the same again?

(and just being nosey, why did NDN chop it down, or was it an accident?)

Mine do seem to make their way back to the compost heaps - or at least some of them do - I see them in the grass - but then the compost heaps aren't far from the veg patch so they don't have far to travel - no idea whether they know where they're going - I find some of them on the terrace at the other end of the veg patch, if the robins don't find them first.

Hi Ally

Do them now   I did mine a couple of weeks ago - they're tough as old boots and will be fine.

I'd give them a sprinkling of Fish Blood and Bone and a mulch of leafmould or well rotted farmyard manure as well.

Apparently not - she can make an occasional post and then her tablet fills up with adverts - her lovely hub will sort it when he gets a chance - but she said to say Hello to all

Digitalis(Foxglove) Companion plant?

I'd go for Silene latifolia - the White Campion and Hesperis matronalis alba, the white Sweet Rocket. 

Both native plants, attractive to moths and night-flying insects, and the Sweet Rocket has a wonderful evening fragrance. 

When will people learn the difference...

To return to metres and the squaring of them (just for a moment )

If it's said/written properly ... i.e. 3 square metres or 3 metres square

then the difference is obvious isn't it?

Morning Fairy (you have a PM by the way)

I was wondering about Doc and Bushman - do you think they're busy in their greenhouses with no time for chatting?
