dahlias dahling

I admire you all for growing such fabulous dahlias and I don't know which to choose as best as they are all really wonderful.  I have no hope of growing them as I have the national collection of slugs in my garden.

Looks like it could be one of the meadow rues - lesser meadow rue perhaps?

Great news about the allotment Tracey - it will be hard work but you will have such fun planning your veg and you will be able to grow flowers there too.

Such good news.

Storing Potatoes & Onions Together

Posted: 29/08/2014 at 14:28

Not heard that one before NewBoy, but I suppose it could be right in a confined space. I store my potatoes in paper sacks and the onions in open apple boxes.  They are next door to each other but in the garage with good air circulation (gap under door) and both seem to keep with no problem.

I have heard that Hermes is cheaper than Royal Mail, but is it easy to use?

Mine had the best flowers ever since I've had them in the garden, but they had finished flowering by the end of July. 

Watering whilst on holiday

I've used Fleurisa's method for house plants by putting the plants in the bath and filling a bucket with water and trailing old cut up tea towels to the pots.  It should work outside too.

Freezing corn on the cob.

We probably have ours in the freezer for no more than six months as we have eaten them all by then.  Alan4711 - don't defrost them, just plunge them into boiling water for no more than 10 minutes.  If your cobs have shriveled in the freezer it is probably because you haven't eliminated as much air as possible or kept them too long.  I have a plastic bag sealer but also use the Sainsburys zippy bags and both methods keep the cobs plump.
