Same here, life IS to short

Chillis not yet ripe but it's winter?

Posted: 25/10/2013 at 16:48

When they get leggy and stop producing chillies cut them down and store the plants in pots, like over wintering fushias in frostfree area (dry) till March and they will shoot up again with gentle watering.

I'm happy to note that we both have a sense of humour Emma

Try "Rhodochiton Artrosanguineum" on the same site.

Talkback: How to make a bubbling urn water feature

Sorry James, a couple of drops of washingup liquid. Don't put toooooo much, unless you want a REAL bubble pool. Besides, it might harm the birds that come to bath and drink from it!

Talkback: How to make a bubbling urn water feature

Hi James, a couple of drops in an urn the size of mine stops the problem. Mine is set up in March, after the danger of frost is past and lasts till October. I dismantle it all then  and drain the urn. I wrap the pump in a couple old towels and replace it in the urn. It sits on an upturned plastic pot. The pot is then covered with an old piece of carpet and kept dry with a waterproof cover. By the way, since I took that picture I lowered the "tray" and covered the edge with pebbles.

Theft of Patio Planters and Containers

It's very sad, but common these days. I was given three York stone troughs and had them along the drive.They were heavy empty and made heavier with bricks and compost. They disappeared over night and were on sale at a car boot sale nearby the next day plants and all!! Alerting the police (with photos and all) was no help. I could not even buy them back as they were overpriced.The thieves obiously knew what price they were empty, never mind filled! My drive is potless ever since.

Still got problems with Forum

I AM speaking for myself Dove,and I do get the local nursery to order me special plants. My thoughts are simmilar to Gina Gibbs,Blairs,Mark Talbot and Macavitythe cat. But there are people who are seduced by these online offers, especially if they are new gardeners.

I agree Mark, I found some good plants in supermarkets, never mind in GSs or in P&P offers but we are seduced by the psycology used in ads!
