How do i plant Morning Glory

Posted: 19/04/2012 at 16:15

As as already been said, they dont like the cooler nights, so depending on whereabouts in UK you are you need to know your local night temperatures. Am in NWest & sow mine in May- must admit sometimes I soak pre sowing, sometimes not. Not usually a problem. J.

Talkback: Taking geranium cuttings

Posted: 19/04/2012 at 14:29

Quite correct Kate. I still do my pelargonium cuttings in terracotta pots.

BTW OH hates the smell of them-oops, several on table in porch & more 'on the go'....J.

What's the weather like in your area?

It's much brighter today & fewer showers in Manchester. Have removed the fleece off greenhouse dahlias, no cold nights expected for a few days.

I remember 76- my finals & wedding! It rained the day before, so was fresher 'on the day'. J.

B&Q M.Purpose Compost Issues.

Posted: 18/04/2012 at 18:08

If it's any consolation, the B&Q seed/cutting compost still fine.

I prick things out into JI2 usually. Have got some of the MP, only a small bag, so will take care for what/when I use it. J.

Feeling guilty now as have had a chocolate bar to celebrate finishing the 'kitchen blitz'- ie wiping down all the surfaces/cupboards properly & removing all the stuck on food etc that had been building up.

OH & daughter may both be good cooks, but they do have an inability to clean up properly (to my standard!) after themselves!

Inside cupboards not been done. Sometime maybe? Everytime I open the one & see the dust, I think of JEEMAR/Tellima who urged us all to get on with our spring cleaning a couple of yrs back. She's not been around for a while. I know her health wasnt good......J.

Sorry- Paul, not David! J.

Yep same here. Have a couple of trees adjacent to my boundary.

Agree with David re the ones in lawn- mower deals with those.

As for the rest, vigilance & knowing to get them out asap otherwise a real struggle.

No easy way to keep control am afraid. J.

Been busy doing inside chores as tomorrow will shop for treats to take to hospital on Friday. Weather not brill again & nothing pressing on garden front at the mo so better to saty busy indoors. J.

Wet again, but brightening up a bit now & the wind a lot less- Manchester. Still only about 7C outside though. J.

All I've done today is re-secure a wandering coldframe- empty luckily- & tomorrows' forecast for us just as bad! J.
