Can I grow beetroot in a container

Posted: 16/05/2014 at 11:24

If you have a deep enough pot, you should be able to. I've grown baby beets and normal sized ones and I've found that its the small ones that have the longest root.

to me it is a mistery

I think the first one is fennel and the second one looks like a geranium.

More identifying...

I thought the first one might be garlic, looking at the leaves, or its an allium.

Second one is Thrift

Third is a saxifrage

Fourth is Doronicum (Leopards Bane)

I.D please :)

 Tried it and it works. The only problem I have is trying to change my profile picture as that just doesn't work.

What do you do or what did you do at work

Worked for a pharmaceutical market research company for 2 days shy of 26 years, updating their product files before moving on to creating reports that were sent out to pharmaceutical companies in the UK and Ireland. Luckily I was on consecutive maternity leaves and since being made redundant while on maternity leave, am now a full time mummy. I help out at my boys school with extra reading help every week to the children in reception who need it. And when the weather is fine, gardening is on the agenda.

What plant is this?

Yep, oxalis, has yellow flowers.

Grass treatment

Hi Ben,

We have used EverGreen Weed and Feed as we tend to get moss in our grass along with weeds. Its one you scatter from its container and then you water in if it doesn't rain. There are others that you have to mix with water and pour if you have the time to do it.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
