Currings - some questions

Posted: 29/07/2015 at 21:47

I take the bag off my cuttings after a few days and keep them out of direct sunlight. I don't water too much until I can see some growth appearing it can take a while for the roots to pop out of the bottom

Flax........

I tried growing the annual type this year. They didn't germinate that well for me and the plants that I did get were a little straggly. Mine had pretty deep red flowers

My  Spring sown ones are only just taking off now with flowers. I've always left mine outside but can't see why they wouldn't do ok in a greenhouse

It was almost a perfect garden

I say it to myself every year, I must stake that and then don't bother. Every year I get floppy plants, they pick up a lot when the sun comes out again

So pleased

Hello there lily, good to see you too That's so great that you've seen one in your garden too, maybe all is not lost for them.

I'm pretty sure that he is living in the outhouse, the doors open all the time and I've seen him again tonight.

I take it fish based food is no good for them? Cats are now on meat only pouches and biscuits

Started this garden from scratch a few months ago and I'm growing all my plants with wildlife in mind, I never thought I would have a hedgehog

Rain

It's still raining here, at least the plants are getting a drink and I don't have to water

So pleased

Guess what? He has been spotted in the garden again tonight My partner saw him amble into the outhouse/junk shed. I've been leaving out some cat food out since we've first saw him.

Verdun and Tetley what kind people you are. I feel very lucky to have one using my garden so will try and make him at home.

Will watch out for any little ones out and about later this year.

I was shocked to see that these little things are being sold as pets People never cease to sadden me with their attitudes towards animals and wildlife. Present company excluded of course

But I will do my best for this one and feel very grateful to be so close to one

Dove sounds like your ones are well catered  for Will have a look at the link
