This is silly. We recently had someone on these boards who was deliberately trying to cause upset and division, his efforts didn't manage to bring around so many threads.

I have no problem with people using certain words or wanting to say good morning to each other. When their intentions are good, and just wanting to be nice to other posters, there isn't an issue. Regardless of how untidy it might look.

Let's put it to bed, not be so self conscious and not worry about people being perfectly polite to other users. Life's too short.

Last Year 2012

Last year didn't turn out too well on the whole though, so I'm hoping this year's late start is going to bring us a glorious long summer. Ever the optimist

What to grow on a one acre site?

It's not really a gardening question in all honesty. If it was easy to grow a cash crop and sell it on we'd all be doing it.

Have you thought about renting the land out for horses perhaps?

They're not the only ones, Wilkinsons, Aldi, Lidl and a whole host of thrift stores have realised gardeners still spend money. It's just, like the rest of the country, we're having to be a little more careful where we spend it.

Veg growing inside

I'd go for lots of different salad crops too as they wouldn't take up too much space and you could probably have a near enough all year supply.

Talkback: Growing autumn-fruiting raspberries

Posted: 18/03/2013 at 17:14
If you have summer fruiting raspberries, they fruit on last years stems, if these have been cut back this year you may not get any raspberries from those plants again. Autumn fruiting are fine to cut back every spring as they fruit on new wood (this years growth).

Cosmos seeds - mixed up

No problem, I made the same mistake last year when potting up.

Cosmos seeds - mixed up

Joyce is correct, once they grow in to a fairly reasonable sized plant the red ones will have a slightly pink/red tinge to the stem. The white will be a lush green colour, you will just have to wait a little but you'll notice the difference.

Has spring arrived for you yet?

This time last year we had temps reaching nearly 20 degrees in the SE, having said that, it was about the only warm spell we had. Fingers crossed it's just a little shy at the moment but promising a better summer.

Favorite tomatoes

That's unfortunate as I've been asked specifically not to grow smaller varieties this year by the other half, will still have a go with some in the hope we get a decent year, just won't get my hopes too high for them. Thanks for your advice as always.
