That's a good crop Salino, does nothing for me as I'm only growing them for my partner. Can't bear them myself! 

Fuchsia - when to cut it back

Posted: 21/08/2014 at 22:40

I can never remember when to cut them back. I'm I right it leaving them be all Winter and then when they start growing, cut them back then?

I think this is great time  Rosie, I've taken some stem cuttings and put them straight into compost, but also just plonked some in some water in my kitchen window sills.

I moved established plants last October Steve, they made it through, it sounds like they like their conditions.

If you were thinking of moving them I would be tempted to move them soon. I've found as long as you are gentle and move a lot of the rootball things transplant easily.

Echinacea problem

I don't tend to feed any of my flowering plants, particularly perennial types, but that's just me. I'm wondering if the Miraclegrow has anything to do with it?

Don't know as this is the first year of growing them. They are in a greenhouse. Tomatoes picked is a zero, but I think they just might be starting to ripen........maybe

Don't really know, but when ever I'm faced with a floppy plant, I just give it a water and hope the for best. It could be anything,maybe this one is just a weaker one.

Onions - Autumn planting

Posted: 20/08/2014 at 22:22

That's great advice Wonion,thanks.

Planted some sort of onions earlier this year, straight in the ground and were amazed that we had to keep replanting them for a while. I'm thinking that they were so light that when the birds had a nibble it didn't take much for them to lift out.

They are growing now but not very big

Thank you, it means a lot 

I'm looking forward to getting my exciting seed parcel. Still love growing from seed, it's so much fun growing new plants. Will always grow flowers, but at the moment I'm loving the veg!

Hi Matty I have some of my original plants from a couple of years ago. They survived the last mild wet Winter. I've just taken some cuttings, first time I've tried it. I stuck them into some compost in my greenhouse.

I can only wish for self sowings,mind you I'm leaving some of the flower heads to go to seed in that hope
