Today I planted  sweet pea seeds in the greenhouse, in deep roottrainers.

The hellebore seeds I took off my plants last year are starting to germinate.

12strong Polka raspberry canes arrived. I hope tomorrow is warmer, I need to get them in soon.

I hope your cold gets  better soon,Verdun.

I hope shadow doesn't miss his bits too much.

Scarlet Emporor Runner Bean in blossom indoors in Feb advice please! :)

Far too early. I dont sow runner beans under glass until end of April. Chuck them out and wait until then.

Unless you are in Spain or somewhere else warm and  frost free.

 

Novice in growing hellebores - advice, please :)

Ashwood nursery will have a huge polytunnel full at the moment. Many are quite exquisite. I don't know where you live, but a trip to them in Kingswinford, west midlands is worth the trip. You can pick the ones you want in flower. Good flowering size plants are never cheap, because it takes at least two years to give a flowering plant.

The Sir  John Borlase Warren on Canning circus has just been renovated and reopened for business.  The Hand and heart on Derby rd is still there too.

What subject does she want to do?, chicky.

Panda, did I give you snowdrops last year?

How did they do?  I dug them up earlier than I usually do. I normally split them  after they die down, and replant straight away.

Hand weed as best you can.

.Paint any weeds carefully with a glyphosate gel touchweeder(roundup)

Mulch well

If you start a  new bed, you must be sure to eradicate any perennial weeds before you replant.

Well I've done some gardening. Three lots of banana seeds in the propagator. I've floated some hellebore flowers in a bowl, and I've picked some kale.

Onion seeds tomorrow I think.  I'm pacing myself.

Beautiful pictures of Grenada., punkdoc. Did you go to the nutmeg factory? I thought it smelt of sunday mornings. My mum always made egg custard with nutmeg on on sundays.

 

Remove box hedging?

Some people like clipping little hedges. I dont. To me it just gets in the way. There might be someone local who would take it off your hands.

Personally I would rip the lot out, and make a useful  veg plot. I suspect you would double your functional space.

Anyone done any gardening today?
