I have them growing in dry shade. There are a lot on the M1 embankment, and there is some variation, some having a reddish calyx, giving the overall plant a much redder appearance.

It prefers welldrained soil  rather than wet conditions.

Ragged robin (Lychnis flos cuculi) is superficially similar and likes wet conditions.

Tomato feed

Posted: 25/05/2016 at 14:15

I find that Phostrogen can be used on most things, and is fairly economical.

Most vegetables I only feed when I plant them. I give them all a handful of Blood fish and bonemeal when I am preparing the soil. Feed the soil and not the plant.

 for top ups, i use soluble Phostrogen for tomatoes and cucumbers and  other things in pots.

Runner Beans

Runner beans don't need much feed. If you give them too much nitrogen, you will have lots of leaves and no flowers. Give them a mulch of compost mixed with as little granular fertiliser or blood, fish and bone. Make sure you water beans well. If they get dry, the flowers don't set well to form pods.

Another newbie plant ID please

I don't think it is a foxgloves, more like a willowherb.

I'm glad the weather was good for you, Punkdoc.

When the sun shines on the dandelions, they glitter and shimmer in a way that you can't get on the photo. Robin Wight is such a clever man.
