April in Your Garden

Wow! You have turned it into a paradise.

What's the weather like in your area?

Figrat and soggy doggy back from venture out to get guttering. Mission successful, but suddenly the thought of sawing it up and sowing seeds doesn't seem so attractive! Wind eased here ( south Devon) but still raining. Some of my climbing roses have taken a battering. Dwarf French beans looking smug and snug under their cloches.

Getting girded up to go out and get some more guttering, going to sow some carrots and maybe some other stuff as getting fed up with not being able to sow directly. PennyDog will also be sporting her raincoat.

And if you go right down to the bottom of the settings/ forum bit you'll find a list of all the topics which are currently set to send reply messages, you can disable them individually from there. I think the general 'default to no messages' only applies to new threads/ postings.

Temperatures should be higher now than in Feb (haha) and there is more daylight, both of which will promote faster growth. Terracotta pots are porous, but prettier, plastic pots better at moisture retention but more utilitarian in it may be that your later sown radishes got a better start, and are in a moister environment for their roots.

David, I think that if you tick the 'email me when a response is made' box at the end of individual threads, you are in fact selecting that option. I too was initially deluged with emails, but after checking that the box was left blank, not ticked, they have stopped.

Planting a Rambling Rector

Your chicken and guinea pig manure should be fine, but any manure should be well rotted, not used fresh.

Rambling rector gets to a very large size indeed, and I would be doubtful it would be happy in a pot.

Overwintered runner bans

Left the roots in after clearing last year's crop, they've survived the winter and putting up new growth.
