Too early to clear old planting material

Posted: 17/02/2017 at 09:44

I'm in Norfolk and I cut mine back a couple of days ago ... similar plants to yours - fairly tough individuals ... however I'm not going to cut back the salvias, penstemons, echinaceas etc just yet.

I'm beginning to see Trump's  and his lot screaming " it's all fake news"  when they hear something they don't like, along the same lines as some, I repeat SOME of the Scottish YES campaigners saying " it's all Westminster interference"....See original post



 Just as successive British governments and media over the years blamed everything on the EU ... then chickens came home to roost  


It's wet outside now ... so a bit more h*wk is on the cards - the parquet needs buffing ...

WHY IS MY PEONY PLANT NOT FLOWERING?

jacqui says her peony is in a sunny spot with good drainage - to me that suggests that the buds aren't getting enough moisture to swell - I'd give it a bucketful of water as soon as you see the buds forming, and another bucketful a few days later.

Yes , 'our' bluetits always do a bit of pecking around the entrance each year, even when they've used the box before. You know the house proud types Hosta, nothings ever perfect enough

Growing sweetcorn in container ???

I've found Sweetcorn 'Swift' to be very good - it's an early,  tender variety  developed especially for cooler, shorter seasons and is great for the UK climate.
