Tomatoes in a cold GH

Not an expect veg growing by any means and I don't like toms. My partner grows them and he has seed that has germinated in the greenhouse. He just keeps the door shut, they seem to be doing ok

Help/advice needed

That looks like a shit job, showed my partner and his first reaction was what are the  pipes doing outside?  I would get that checked out, doesn't look right at all

Is it possible to divide Sweet Williams?

I do the same as well butterfuly, sometimes just can't be bothered so they are all go in together.

Not sure why yours didn't bloom Dimwit. A lot of the plants you buy have been nurtured to bloom early. A couple of my plants are now starting to form the very beginnings of flowers.

Sometimes when I've been a bit too enthusastic about pinching out the plant has flowered less well

Just wanted to share :)

Gardening is so much fun and with these they will self seed so you will never be without them. All that from a packet of seeds

Looking good Baz, it's amazing how much things grow in a short space of time

marigold / sweet pea seeds

Posted: 02/05/2015 at 20:48

Hello, I would have thought you would ok with the marigolds, as I think they are annuals. I've sowed a few annuals in the last couple of weeks.  I sowed my sweetpeas about a month ago which was late for me. They are about 2 inches stall and I haven't pinched out the leaves yet. I think if you could do them now, you'll get later blooms and maybe for not so long.

You can pick up small sweetpeas really cheap, but if you wanted to grow your own I would sow them
