Drying rose petals

Posted: Yesterday at 19:03

I thought they dip them in liquid Nitogen now, to save the colour? Not sure how they last after that though.

Wishfull thinking?

So do you now use it for composting Edd?

See original post

 After burning It all goes in the vermicomposting bin. No problems after my little friends help out.

If they do not die all is good to use.

Botrytis questions

Posted: Yesterday at 18:38

Destroy the lot, preferably burn what you can. The spors (grey mould/Botrytis Cinerea ) will over winters as sclerotia in compost heaps ready for the next period of warm humid weather. I had a long period of this problem until I discovered Vermicomposting ( the worms eat and destroy the mould) 

PS. Try sulpher candels in the greenhouse but I'm not sure if they work 100% You may have to deep clean with jeyes fluid or other.

Please look into sulpher candels as Im sure they are cheaper and easier.

7-10 years for lavender Muddle-Up and cuttings are very, very easy to grow. What makes you think they do not last? (no offence intended)

Lamb's Ear is Stachys byzantina - a much smaller plant with stems carrying tiny pinkish flowers  

See original post

 Are you sure Fairygirl? you will be correcting me on lambs tail next (Sedum morganianum) 

This is lamb tail and ear and yes they are much smaller.

Apparently they've researched them in Europe

See original post

By that do you mean catching and eating??? 

I thought it was illegal to catch wild birds?

Unless they are using the new micrometer lazer measurment binoculars that I have not patented yet?

Wishfull thinking?

Verbascum densiflorum, the denseflower mullein.

They do facinate me in how they grow so strong and big.

I would take that with a pinch of salt, Fairygirl. I wish I could get paid for research into great tits.Who funded this "research"?
