Have I grown too much

Posted: 06/05/2016 at 08:36

I'm doing the green/seed house shuffle too Think I've got about 50 + larkspur with still some more to come out as well as all the other stuff. Having to dig deep to find small size pots at the moment. I haven't done a count but it must be getting on to be 100 plus so yes I think it's normal nut Well it is to me

An improvement?

I'm not sure what to say? Apart from how is this meant to be an improvement from what was hear before? I read that others have found the uploading and quote functions being better, but it's so stale, white and empty. Very disappointed that this is the big forum revamp.

I have to agree, all the whiteness is making my eyes ache :(

Agree completely with others about the endless scrolling, hard to navigate, can't see the forum community as a whole. Very poor.

Hi tony, is the plant in it's own pot now? If it's looking healthy with plenty of leaves, I would pinch it out. They get really bushy that way

Unreliable tradespeople

Posted: 22/04/2016 at 11:21

Fortunatley my partner seems to be able to turn his hand to most things, so not a huge experience of dealing with trade as a customer but I've been around them. Some are notoriously unreliable and even though you are paying them, they flounce around as if they are doing you the favour. God forbided you p them off, they just don't come back and then some of them won't complete a job if it's been started by someone else. Don't pay them an hourly rate.

The job is now a grand more expensive! That's a huge amount of money!  I don't know the size of the drive but that seems really pricey. Anyway hope you get it sorted soon with minimal headache

I didn't know you could do this, thanks Dove. Just tried but I can't remember my password.

Just been listening to Lets go Crazy, love the start of this track and I remember that 1999 seemed a long way ahead in the 80s

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
