Plantsava watering systems

How long are you planning to be away and what are you growing in your containers?  I find that moving containers into a shady corner and giving them a good soaking before we go away gives us about 10 worry-free days and the plants are fine when we return.  Last May we even left tomato plants to cope on their own for a week, and they were fne too.

Good morning everyone   we saw lots of magnolias with lovely fat buds yesterday - travelling inland from here in the east you can track spring arriving 

Ear's on the mend thanks Lily - still sore and itchy and needs a salt-water bath each day but so much better than it was 

It looks like a gardening day today 

Eggs, and cooking with them

Lots of ideas for using up surplus eggs here 

Runner beans

Posted: 13/03/2014 at 07:05

I've done both, depending on the weather - if it's a late spring I start the beans off indoors and move to the coldframe before planting out.  If it's an early spring like this year, I may well sow direct in early to mid May - I'll just see what the weather's like. 

Can you please help me identify this plant, x2 photos attached, thank you

Save the old stems to dry out and put on the BBQ when cooking fish - will give lovely aroma - or use them to make a bug box 

The mystery of pH.

Good morning all   did you miss me???   I did try to tell you all last night where I'd been, but our broadband went down  

Gosh it was foggy up in Lincolnshire yesterday morning!!!  

We went to Grantham, then down to Amersham in Bucks, then Campsea Ashe in Suffolk and back here to Norfolk.  I helped son with the driving which was fun as he has an Alpha with a bit of oomph   Sadly not a single garden centre on the motorways - lots of petrol stations and fast food outlets  think they're missing a trick there!!!
