Evening all pricked out lots of lobelia seedlings into lots of cell trays and later planted out few plants and moved seed trays around in the greenhouse.

Also took some cuttings and still more to do

Just watched on iplayer Hebrides thanks to Fairygirl like the under water parts and all those birds sitting on the wire

Evening All

donkey sanctuary sounds interesting

Yesterday went to the GC brought few plants some red verbena trailing, a common mallo and some white bacopa and got a free black grass - ophiopogon as spent a lot of money also brought lots of compost

was a bit wet there yesterday some times

Well today so far - managed to get some nice free plants after seeing an add in the local echo at the back, so after a bit potted them up into pots then it rained for a while with me out  in it trying to sort them out now indoors and dried off.

Nice pics blackest

So Evening Forkers

Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 11/05/2013 at 10:46

You could nip the tips of again they should be fine and grow stronger and side shoots as well, I have nipped my sweet peas in the past before a few times till they came out nice and strong

Mine are now showing and will be going into the plastic greenhouse sowed later as last year too early and did not grow at all

Compost bin was on offer when we had to buy the garden waste wheelie bin that is now used here so 3rd compost bin 2 larger ones and the wormery- still trying to get the hang of that. Matty those compost bin do work well
