Potatoes not growing

I'd blame the low temperatures ... hopefully things will warm up soon and growth will pick up.  Don't water until you see growth ... cold and wet will cause rot.

GWRS Snap!  - I'm just eating a Cromer crab salad for my lunch 

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Mine arrived on Wednesday ... beautifully packaged and looking good ... since then it's been in the mini greenhouse ... I'll pot it on in a day or so when the weather warms a bit and I can bear to be outside ...

Water problem

Posted: 06/05/2017 at 11:48

Wonky took a photo of the relevant tap and took it to Homebase or B&Q or wherever and showed them so she was sure she'd got one that fitted her tap.  They were very helpful.

It's against a west facing wall, but the  part that looks poorly is taller than the wall and therefore exposed to the freezing north-easterly winds we in the East of England have endured recently ... maybe that's what's done the damage?   Whereabouts are you, geographically speaking?

Joyce, I've just bought an Actaea from Sarah Raven ... couldn't resist it ... where have you got yours and how tall has it got ... I'm not sure where I'm going to put this one ...

You won't kill it, but it'll look flippin' ugly - there's one near here that someone has done that to, poor thing.  It's a tree for big spaces ................

Just had a lovely long phone chat with a happy Wonky, followed by another with her brother for a coffee and some list writing ... a short shopping list and a longer To Do list for the garden
