Is this the right place or is there another sweet pea thread on the go now?
I sowed some sweetpeas a couple of weeks ago and stuck them into the greenhouse. They've started to sprout (an inch at most). Should they go outside now or should give them another week or two to grow a little bit more?
I bought one of these in the spring and it's been really pretty. I assume spring would be the best time to try propagating it, would that be right?
I have to get some seeds for next year!
They grew back this spring, just not as much as I'd hoped. I'll stick them in the greenhouse and hope for the best next year. Thanks!
Now, I really must go and plant some bulbs.
Most are still in pots. I planted a couple of them out earlier in the year but forgot how big the fennel would grow so are a bit swamped by that.
When I repotted them they were still tiny so I didn't put them into particularly big pots which won't have helped them grow I reallise now.
I sowed some echinacea seeds last spring (2011) and haven't had so much as a flower from any of them. I repotted them this spring with fresh compost and they are still tiny. I know some of this will be weather related, there hasn't been much of a summer in Glasgow this year. Should I chuck them on the compost bin and buy a fully grown plant next year?
The same thing happened with the ones I have grown in a large tub but the ones in the ground are still producing longish stems.
I'll be buying some sweetpea seeds this afternoon and sowing them shortly. I started this year's ones in February but wanted to give this autumn sowing a go.
My chillies were like that, too. I assumed it was just the weather before I noticed a load of aphids on them. I don't think I'll have a container full of dried chillies to see me through the winter this year. I'll be doing well if I get one!
