SEEDS

Posted: 24/03/2013 at 19:32

I'm trying the verbena for the first time this year and so far I've found them a bit a tricky, I've chilled them, not chilled them, put them inside and out but no luck.

Don't let that put you off though, others have had  better success with them than me. If I don't get anything soon, I will start again with some new seeds, they are lovely plants and I want some

I would have a quick look on the commercial sites like suttons or fothergills and see what they advise. Sweet peas I would just sow them into to some good compost. Might be worth sowing them in slightly deeper pots as they do grow deep root systems.

Happened to watch it again this morning, forgot to say that I really enjoyed the couple's garden, looked beautiful, they obviously knew their stuff. I liked their advice on just doing it and taking chances and making mistakes. I related to them as real gardeners.

Glad someone else finds Joe Swift's slot annoying

SNOW!

Not best pleased when the snow arrived here yesterday, thought we would escape it. No gardening done here at all.

Had a go at taking clemantis cuttings last year and to my surprise they did really well. In the end I over wintered them in a cold frame/sheltered spot and although they are just sticks now I can see the start of the new growth and they have big root systems.

On looking back on the picture in sept I'd forgotten how much growth they had on them.

Quick moan, just been told by the council that later this year we are no longer to allowed to put black bags out for the rubbish. We will have to use clear bags provided by the council  and only be able to put out 2 a fortnight. Those that want to get their garden waste collected will have to register and pay for that service.

Silence can be good bunny, in some ways that's what I  crave

no emails as well as small text

I don't sign up to the emails but the small writing was really getting on my nerves as I could hardly see it.

There is a fix

I found it easy and quick to do
