Can anyone give me some ideas please. During the summer i bought some Lilium Regale bulbs. I planted in pots to move around the garden. Produced lovely flowers. On previous years i have dried and stored the bulbs in a shed. Each spring i am left with a dried rotten bulb.Does anyone overwinter in pots cutting, off the dried stem.

Just an update on my July post. It is now September and i  am still cutting cucumbers in the greenhouse. After a poor start i have had a very good crop.Plenty of tomato feed did the trick.

Any ideas please. The sweetcorn are good healthy plants. Due to a lack of sunshine they are not ripping to eat. The kernels are still a pale yellow. Has anyone any idea on how to force them .

Well i dont know what has happened here in North Cornwall but since writing my last posts The runner beans has blown over but rescued with thick rope. Sweetpea have gone over,to late for them and the sweetcorn are now tied to a canes. I wonder if anything will be standing in the morning.

The veg that didn't do anything are beetroot and courgettes. The lettuce were good but didn't last long(Pick and come variety)Very few parsnips about 6 in a row.Sweetpeas have finished. It is very cold at night here so i am thankful for the runner beans and sweetcorn which are strong.

Thanks Lyn. Yes i am on the coast. It is lovely to have the sunshine this week and the sweetcorn are improving . Like you the runner beans are good and so were the broad beans. The nights are cold and i am thinking of covering the young lettuce plants. Lets hope for a mild winter . JAD.
