Sweet Corn

My sweet corn have been in for a while & growing really well. They are starting to throw up shoots from the base. Does anyone know if I should cut these off?

The leaves on my tomatoes are curling up to with the heat. I'm leaving the greenhouse door open & the vents, but its getting above 40c in there some days. Will they recover when it cools?

Hi all

I have made a mix of comfrey over the past few weeks. I wonder if anyone could tell me the quantity of my mix i need to add to a litre of water, for a general liquid feed?


Germination times

Posted: 17/04/2015 at 11:37

Hi germination is dependant mainly on warmth. Old seed always seems to take longer too. Parsnips do take a while to germinate and you must keep the soil around them moist. Pak choi does germinate quickly. Courgettes & chillis I guess you have these inside.

I start sweetcorn in individual modules next week. French beans i start in a damp cloth also next week then plant those which throw out roots into individual pots. Neither sweetcorn or french beans can stand the cold.
