Talkback: Growing auriculas

Posted: 30/03/2013 at 15:26
Hi Kate

Many thanks for this story and especially the tip re gravel on top. I have lost count of the number of auriculas that the vine weevils have destroyed.

I keep my collection in terracotta pots in cat litter trays in a 4 tier mini greenhouse. The cat litter trays are great for watering as no water drips onto the plants on the shelf below.


Talkback: Planting out tomatoes

Here in south bucks I have planted out squash, runner beans and broad beans - all doing fine. All of them were sown in the green house, if I sow direct into the ground the mice eat the seeds. Mark you they still ate some seeds from the pots in the greenhouse. They bit off the 2in growth and either ate the seed or re-buried it in another pot. I had a broad bean in an auricular pot!

I have 2 quinces, 4 apples, I crab apple and a damson and the blossom on all of them is delightful. All different, all glorious.

Talkback: Weather damage to plants

I put my crown imperial in pots earlier in the year as I was too late last year to plant them out. They are now dead as the frost has got them. I wish I had kept them indoors.
