Mine arrived today and I have potted them on with regular compost. I used cardboard toilet roll inners cut in half and set in a seed tray. Filled them with the compost and popped a little plug into each on. just the right size for now, watered and in the cold frame till they need potting on again.

are these the free ones from thompson and morgan?

im waiting for loads of plants from them

Gauntlets

if youve got a set already why not try another pair of gloves underneath/over them?

i know it might seem like hassle but you may already have these gloves and would save getting a new pair of gauntlets.

I love beetroot.

We just pulled our first attempts up and pickled them brings back childhood memories of pink wee, the tasters I took tasted great, though I'm not sure of the weight of them.  They werent overly big.

 

Trachycarpus

I bought some Trachycarpus Nainital seeds and planted them about three weeks ago.  I know they will take a while(upto 3 months) to germinate and, being the impatient person I am, I should have probably bought an established plant instead.

Has anyone had success stories with any versions of these from seed?

If so, is there anything other than keeping the soil moist and the plant hot  ( 30 Degrees C) i can do?

I was thinking of getting a reptile heat mat but am not sure about this idea, what techniques have people used to keep the plants warm?

Thanks again for any help.

thanks guys for all your help. I'm quite new to this gardening lark (only really started this year) and do have a lack of patience which I will have to work on.  Lucky enough I have plenty more to get on with.

 

Thanks again for your tips.

ive planted three young holly plants at the end of my garden in the hope of forming a sort of hedge.  only question is, as im an impatient gardener, how & when do i prune these plants to help them grow fuller?

I have about two foot between each plant, id like them about six foot tall eventually.  They have been in the ground for about six months now and are about three foot tall but still look really small.
