Sugar snaps are ready, but the beds are not!

Posted: 08/05/2013 at 21:35

I've grown sugar snap peas in module trays and they're very ready to go out, however the raised bed they were supposed to go in isn't.

I'm struggling for pots but have lots of grow-bags.  Do sugar snaps need a decent root depth or could I get away with planting in grow-bags?  The beds are a good 4 weeks away....

propagation boasts and failures

Posted: 08/05/2013 at 21:25

I took Monty's advice on GW and when I pruned the dogwood, I just stuck the cuttings in the ground - they're all leafing now.  It's the first propagation I've ever been successful with!

Does anyone else..........

Er... I chuck everything in whole, ranging from pizza delivery boxes to butternut squash and cabbages.  Husband always chops up stuff, but frankly I'm too lazy!

Thanks Goldfinch, guess I'll wait a bit longer before I move it then.  Getting impatient as I really need to get my raspberries into its spot :0)

 

Camellia buds not opening

I planted a flowering camellia last March and ensured it was well watered through August - September.  I fed it with ericaceous mulch in autumn and spring, and have had lots of healthy buds on it since February, but as yet not one looks like opening. 

I think it's past it now - does anyone know why this might have happened.  I was planning on moving the plant after flowering but am nervous now....

shade loving plants and grasses

Also, if you're looking for climbers for the fence then the rose, Madam Alfred de Carriere and climbing hydrangea are good for shady areas.

I'm new to gardening so there won't be anything too original here, but hellebores, hostas, ferns of varying colours. Aquilegias do well in our shade area, as do dicentra (bleeding heart) which inject some lovely colour in a very green area.
