Flowers, if you have had a headache for three days, assuming you have tried strong painkillers such as cocodamol or nurofen plus, please ask for an urgent appointment with GP.

Courgettes plants need a little heat to get them going. I take all seedlings out of the propagator as soon as germination has taken place. There is plenty of time to start again. I don't sow my tender plants like courgettes, runner and French beans and sweet corn, untill the end of April. Here they can't go out until the end of May.

Another decent comedic hero gone. All we seem to have left are those who think crudeness and swearing are funny. They're not, they are just embarrassing.

if you feed them, then probably.

The first year they will. A bulb as you buy it already has the flower formed within it and the reserves to make it grow. Then you have to feed them so they renew the bulb for next year. I think that if you plant without feeding them, they will not flower in subsequent years.

Knotweed or not weed?

I spent 20 years trying to fork it out of an area of the veg patch. Eventually I gave up, left it fallow for a year, gave it two doses of glyphosate, one in May and another for regrowth in august. That killed it.

It will save you years of work if you kill it off now. You lose a years planting, but save years of effort trying to fork it out.

Sharp frost here. I moved the brugmansias into the unheated greenhouse yesterday. I hope it hasn't knocked them back..


Transplanting Delay = Stunted Tomatoes, Or?

Posted: 20/04/2016 at 07:00

They are probably stunted due to exhaustion of nutrients in the compost. Transplant them into fresh compost, burying them up to the first leaves. They will soon catch up


Place your bets....
