Hello

Good Evening FORKERS

Hello everyone, unexpected sunny warm day here, spent all day outside planting stuff out, watering and pricking out stuff. Finally the frames are starting to look empty 

The blue tits sound lovely Dove, I do love the birds but not encouraging any as now I have two cats. Sounds like you picked up some bargains Bev rescue plants are brilliant.

What are you sowing now?

Perfect time to sow biennuals........wallflowers, foxgloves, sweet williams, sweet rocket. I'm thinking great time to sow any perennials as well.

I've found if you collect seeds off the ragged robin once they are ready and sow them straight off the plant they germinate quickly and you can have the 2nd generation in the ground before winter ready for next year

Hello bought some perennials early this year 10 for £10 and got some lovely campanulas which I thought some were going to be blue but they all turned out to be white.

Been growing some ammi off the swop as well

White honesty, white campion, white mallow all biennuals which can be sown now for next year.

Thinking further ahead to next spring, there's some lovely white crocus and daffs

 

 

 

How long do Lupins live?

Posted: 29/06/2013 at 22:46

Hi greentooth, tbh I don't know. I have a few lupins one of which is in a heavy damp soil amd so far it comes back every year. When you say you lose them, do they not come up at all? Or is that the fresh leaves get eaten?

Lovely colour Janet and the plant looks perfect

I've been growing lupins for a few years now and never seen a lupin aphid
