Seedlings and 'true leaves'

Posted: 21/03/2013 at 15:59

i ve grown some delphinums on the window sill, and echineas at first the seed leaves appeared, but it seems for ages waiting for the true leaves, phoned father inlaw who sowed the same , he is a amazing gardener, he said his are the same, but wait. Iam very impatient which doesnt go well with gardening, but i waited and now with a few warm days everything seems to be going well and looking healthy.

How can you tell if manure is "well rotted"?

Posted: 04/03/2013 at 21:39

usually if it doesnt smell it normally well rotted

this is one of those questions if only we had the ansew, i have so far protected my young delphinums with half of a plastic bottle with copper band around the bottom, the pound shop has tape at the moment, also a few yougurt pots with flour and water in, this has been in place for two weeks, and i must say lupins and delphinums are looking better, but we are not really in slug season yet, but anything is worth a try ....................

Talkback: Slug-proof plants

i heard that the garlic works very well, so i will be trying this , if someone ever comes up with one item to keep them away they would make a fortune, but i agree slug pellets are not the way to go, i am lucky i have a toad in the garden so hopefully he will performe for his residental stay ?
