Cornflower plants

Posted: 22/04/2016 at 08:57

I'm growing a few of these this year. Space is a bit cramped in the seedhouse so I have just left the tray outside. Mine are way too small to be planted out yet but as long as they have been hardened off gradually they will be fine outside.

The only protection I would give mine would be if it hammered down or maybe if the temps got really chilly as I think that would slow their growth. They are hardy and lots of people sow them in Autumn and they survive

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 21/04/2016 at 18:20

Not much done today. Checked the seedhouse, all looking good. I'm waiting for them to grow big enough to pick out. Had a walk around and looked at things, everything in the beds have got so big ,must be the blood fish and bone. First time I've used it

I'd choose time in the garden over any type of corporate entertainment Tootles but curling? Sounds painful in all sorts of ways

Good to know, thanks. Most parts of the garden get a lot of sun in the summer so I've got a few options

I've just been given one of these. I've repotted at the moment and I'm wondering where it should go. I'm in the south so it might stand more chance down here. I'd imagine it would have larger roots so would do better in large pot if not able to go in the ground.

Weed identification please

I think it's ground elder from what I've seen on other posts here. Very difficult to dig out and is one of those plants that need a topical weedkiller to deal with.

Spring flowering bulbs taking up space

Posted: 21/04/2016 at 10:15

I've not got a large garden, so have mainly used pots for spring bulbs this year. The larger daffs take ages to die down.

Could you did them up now and replant them in a pot? Water and maybe feed occassionally until you know what you want to do with with them  for next year
