This is so variable, I sowed seeds that were due to flower in 6 weeks(according to the packet) and the poor weather  in April and May means that they are only 2 inches tall.  I have some seeds that say 10 weeks and they are struggling. It would also depend on the facilities you have and location. At this time of year I am doing much better with biennials.

Which annuals are you trying?

I have spent the last 2 days planting out like crazy, if I do not get them in soon, my clay soil will have backed hard. I am in the south-east?

I tried pelargoniums, petunias and fuchsias, the petunias have been useless, 1 in 5 for the fuchsias and 50% of the geraniums are coming back to life!

Moldy Compost Disaster :(

Posted: 23/05/2012 at 10:03

Compost quality seems to be a huge issue this year. It is so frustrating when this happens.

Did they call it compost or recyled green waste? Did they charge for this? I have been using at least 50% sand in my mix to ensure that I do not get damping off.
