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

All so funny I think the one that really grates on me is when someone says no way, shape or form....... makes me shudder oh and amazeballs

Work wise we have a job description that says the candidate will be working in a time critical environment??? My friend says it's a special room where we shout at the clock

Singing from the same hym sheet instantly gets my back up too.

Hi Tetley, no they don't need to be in pots at all. I split the croscomia into little ones and they popped up through. That pot has been an aladdins cave All sorts of things have come out of there

I sold some of my surplus last year and didn't too bad out of it. This year I'm sowing with this is mind. People love to see flowers and colour. Bowles mauve are popular and really easy to take cuttings off. How about cosmos? Easy to grow, different varieties and will flower in small pots. I think they were my most popular plant. I hope this continues as I've sown loads of them! 

Bee friendly plants also sold well, so if you have any suitable clumps, you could just divide them, a few weeks time they should have roots. Take a gardening book with you so if your plants don't have flowers people can look at the pictures. I've done many a sale that way

Best of luck of with it

Great name btw
