Raised beds

I'd agree with art and scroggin. Heavy duty fencing timber is very cheap and does the job brilliantly too. If you add a little edging on the top - like a coping - it'll look posher. Mitre the corners.  I'm going for more timber today to do that on mine as they're not for veg - they're for ornamentals.

Morning OL. Sweet peas  Maybe you need to come at them with a triple prong attack - beer traps, grit and some frogs! I've not had problems with them here - yet, but I think the miles of gravel and timber they'd have to cross leaves them feeling like they've been on a rough grater! Once I do a lawn it might change  as they'll have an easier route 

Poke a few seeds directly into the ground next to the ones you've got as a backup.

It's looking great Chris. What lovely pix with the sun glinting through the trees. You should put them on the Garden Gallery thread too 

What other plants have you got in there?

What are these I potted up?

Note to self MrsG - 'always label my plants in future'.  

Of course,  I've never put things in pots and not labelled them.....

I've got something leafy growing in a pot - no idea what it is or even why I put it in there! 

HELLO FORKERS!

Planting out Sweet Peas

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 08:22

They're hardy NG so they'll be fine.  If you've only just started hardening them off I'd give them a bit longer as they've been in a greenhouse a long time.They don't appreciate being blasted by cold wind when they're small, so if you can shelter them from that for a week or so till they get going that's all you'd need to do. Yours are a bit bigger anyway though.  I've often put sweet peas out in April after sowing indoors in Feb/March - I'm in Scotland and it can be pretty cold and windy here in April!
