2 and 3 do look a bit like Snakeshead fritillaries - the way the leaves come off the main stem as it goes up.

Will be thinking of you Hosta ((hugs))


We've decided that Wonky and her Lovely Hub will keep their germs to themselves this weekend - I don't want to catch anything as it would be unfair of me to take 'flu to The Lovely Home when I visit Ma.  Also Wonky and OH need to rest up so they're fit for work on Monday. 

That means I may get a chance to do some potting on tomorrow - if the weather improves. 

Overwhelmed with Nasturtiums!

Depends what else you're putting in there - but I would've thought one or two at the most - the plants will really bush out if you give them the space.

The thing about nasturtiums is that they really do best on poor soil, so don't give them fertiliser.

The problem is that other hanging basket-type plants (petunias, geraniums, fuchsias etc) really need fertiliser in order to perform well so they don't grow well together.

But a basket of just nasturtiums would look great

Don't forget that you can eat the flowers and leaves in a salad (I like the leaves in an egg sandwich too) and if you pickle the seeds you can use them in recipes instead of capers

Good morning all  G'day Pat

I've just put the tomato seedlings back out in the small greenhouse - they spent the night on the dining room table.

Now for my coffee ........

Runny, you click on their avatar and then on the word Ignore that comes up. That takes you to your Settings page where it shows you who you have Ignored. Think you have to Save it.

Help with mystery plant

Posted: 08/04/2016 at 20:59

We all get spells in our life when our garden runs away from us for a while. 

 Jasmine is quite an amenable beauty and usually reacts really well to being cut back.  A feed of Fish, Blood and Bone will help it along
