What's for tea?

Posted: 20/10/2012 at 15:14

home made chilli- cooked last weekend, currently defrosting- no cooking for me tonight

need advice

I guess you could grow them from seeds, like other plants you need to let the seeds dry out properly before you sow them.

Have you thought about growing them from the corns instead. These plants really spread over a short space of time. How about dividing the plant?seperate it and then replant, you should have a good show next year

Do you have to have pick out points...

Hiya,

The garden has had a major over haul this year, and the first thing that changed was the path.

As you can see I go for the haphazard planting scheme, in time hopefully I'll a lot more plants that trail over the walls and I probably will plant into the edge of path it self to soften it up even more

Morning, I've got a day planned of doing nothing, going to have a dossy day.

Looking forward to the dancing tonight

Geoff- in the end I signed the cat over to the vet. He was great and was going to try and find her a new home. It was a tough decision to make but my head tells me it was the only option but my heart tells me something different.Getting easier though.

Creeping Buttercup

I hate this plant, it's the most invasive weed that I have (worse than bindwind) have a lot of it in my garden including around my very small pond. I deal with it as often as I can. I agree with Dove- get rid of it

Talkback: Make the most of a greenhouse in autumn

Posted: 19/10/2012 at 19:57

It really does depend on the plants, it's unlikely that tender non hardy plants will make it through any sort of unheated greenhouse through the winter. When over wintering plants you also have to think about your location and what sorts of Winter you can expect

Oh yea, oh yea,oh yea, an amazing announcement

There is something not right about all this, I'm going to block you from now on, you are now on my ignore list and all your alias names

Cover side of shed

Posted: 16/10/2012 at 23:02

I was lucky enough to inherit a shed and then a really mature Clemantis Montana that has been growing all over it.. I would  go for  this plant to cover anything. It does grow like mad but is very attractive, beautiful flowers in early spring. it requires very little attention.

The only disadvantage is that it does go to stick  in the winter

Berry-eating birds will need more help this year

Posted: 16/10/2012 at 22:09

I have some ivy growing through a boundary fence, last year blackbirds loved feeding on it. I've left it alone this year and can see the berries developing. Thanks Dove  for the reminder- I will put out other food this Autumn and Winter also. I normally put out fat balls, general seed but i will give the cheap raisins a go as well
