When i moved into my house 10 years ago i had a beautiful wisteria growing up a pergola .After a couple of years due to a strong cold wind coming off of the sea sadly it died(or so i thought).

For three years i have had leaves but no flowers. Much to my surprise,after climbing a ladder i have three small individual flowers . Only at the top so they can be seen from a window. 

I have been at the point of removing it and planting again. 

To all beginners of gardening be patience dont be disappointed if your plant hasn't flowered the first year. 

It is the start of CHELSEA on Monday .Enjoy you can always learn something new.

We are having a lovely sunny spell at the moment. In the greenhouse the temperature is in the 60-70. After chatting to you i think i will leave them just in case i stress them. Maybe it is just some more heat that they need. I will let you know the outcome. Thanks again

Thanks Pete 8. I have taken a photo of a tray of lettuce and a cucumber in a pot. The lettuce i pricked out on the 3rd April.Cucumber on the 9th.April. The soil i used was the Blue Diamond brand. Multi purpose. Plenty of light in the greenhouse. But maybe it has been to cold. The temperature has started to warm up here in north cornwall. All the other items that i have planted i.e sweetcorn,sunflower seeds.which are in small pots are doing well.

I send a post yesterday but i havent had any views or replies so i will start again.

I made a mistake of buying cheap branded multi compost.

The seedlings are not growing after 1 month from picking out.Left in the greenhouse. 

I am think of changing the soil to John Innes no2 as i havent any no 1. 

Can i please have some options from other growers as i have a 38 mile round trip to the shops.

I made a mistake a bought a cheap branded multi compost. The seedlings are just not growing.Still very small ,after 5 weeks(  pricked out.). I am thinking of changing the soil.

I now have John Innes no 2 compost. Can i have an opinion from you all whether to use this as i haven't any J/I no 1.

I need to drive a 38 miles round trip to the shops.

 A lesson to be learnt.Never to buy a cheap soil again.
