To late to plant foxgloves?

Posted: 08/11/2014 at 21:51

Still time to put plants in the ground as long as it isn't frozen.

Too late to sow seed to flower next year.

Having a bit of a breakdown session here. In the last month, the virgin box harddrive broke(replaced)

My video camcorder broke(not replaced)

His work laptop hard drive died, unable to fix for a week, so he bought a new additional one for work and then old one repaired.

Alternator on his car died, day before long run to  Southampton, so new alternator installed, but today decided new car needed, so he bought a newish car.(old vectra 12 year old, new volvo 10 month old)

I hope thats it for this month.

How did you find out about the nation of gardeners thing, and apply?

Punkdoc, I agree with your OH on the orange kitchen. When I bought this place, I moved in on a Friday, the tango kitchen was ripped out the following monday, and the greenhouse ordered a month later.

I am using builders bags,with chicken wire on top to stop the leaves blowing around. They rot down by half in the first year,and take a couple of years to be usable.

Do you grow Aconitum's?

I'm not convinced that just brushing past it would kill you. Otherwise there would be dead nursery men all over the country. For multiple organ failure,you would have to eat some.

DONT use weedkiller in running water, it will kill other plants downstream.

Duckweed usually needs a nutrient rich water to thrive, remove any decomposing leaves etc that will increase the nutrient level.
