I planted sweet peas in the ground and in tubs of the old fashion variety.The ones in pots looked well then began to fail,the the ones in the ground are doing well but not brillant .You have to keep picking the flowers which i have done and watered well and fed but this year is not doing at all well.

i have lots of these,do not be tempted to over water or under water.they will rot if you over water .a good mix of grit and Jonn innes will surfice and they like air and not draughts.a sunny shelf will do but not to be trapped in winter between the curtains.they are called I think lithops not sure of their type.

It reminds me of when I was out riding on Mendip there use to be a herd of ruby red cows that use to graze there.They were such good escape artist and would hanging around the gates to see who leave it open.They once or twice escaped into the wood and were on the run for a month.We would come across them standing in the middle of the path with their young, gently chewing the cud and refusing to get out the way.on the whole they would ignore you and did no chasing unlike some herds.Ithink they are now confined to a secure feild...but for how long?
