Good Morning Everyone

What veggies are you planning on growing 2013?

Posted: 25/01/2013 at 12:59
I loved your story about your nephew Sam
I grow my Peppers in flower buckets and usually get a good crop.I feed them the same as tomatoes.
I wonder which varieties you have been growing? Two varieties that I like to grow are Tasty Red and Tasty Yellow Grill - they are the long Peppers.Jumbo Sweet is also good
Forgive me of I am telling you something you already know but Parsnips etc. will fork if grown in newly manured soil.
Has no-one googled my Peter Peppers yet

I always leave the sowing of my Basil's until the end of April - they grow better when it is a bit warmer

Looking after an orchid

Posted: 23/01/2013 at 18:46
Hello Lisa My instinct is that because the orchid has been repotted it may be getting too much water at this time of year.It is a lovely orchid and you have repotted it at the correct time into the right compost.If it was mine I would go really easy on the watering for a while -maybe mist the plant with some cooled boiled water rather than watering it -then hopefully when new leaves appear they will be fine. I have to confess that I have an orchid that is over 10years old and it has never been repotted but still flowers each year-it appears to thrive on neglect!
