HELLO FORKERS! June Edition

Posted: 05/06/2016 at 16:40

Daniel has posted but doesn't tell us anything other than it was a "cooling off period"


We still don't know what was the problem. If we don't know, I suppose any of us could be in the same position.

Please can anyone identify this plant ?

I'm thinking it looks more like a privet that is about to flower, and the smell is not good.

I think it is black bindweed,   Fallopia convolvulus

sea holly??? I don't think so

The bottom one look like Eryngium gigantium first year Next year they will turn prickly and start shooting up.



Both sort of leaves in the photo.

Bought some seeds from IKEA

The first two are brassicas, the last is amaranth. They are used as cut and come again leaves for stirfrys or salads.


Sow thinly on a seed tray full of multipurpose compost. Water and they will germinate in a few days. After about three weeks, cut individual leaves off to use.

Help! What is this plant please

I WONDERED WHERE THE CRYSTAL BALL WAS. NUTS GOT IT.

Is seeding compost suitable for mature plants?

Seed compost is very low nutrient. You would need to add a good fertiliser like blood fish and bone. Is it loam based or peaty? The more fibrous sort will rot down and the level will drop. You really need topsoil or loam for raised beds.

Is that Cornus florida variegata  or Weigela florida variegata you are thinking of?
