Lovely photos!

Chillies problem

Posted: 10/07/2012 at 19:29

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!  

Courgette Help

I still haven't had a single courgette this year.  I saw some flowers on them today so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Oh poor Bob.  I have a big version of Bob - I was waiting for your Bob to successfully produce some fresh shoots before I give my big Bob a chop.  I'll maybe just leave him as he is!


Is it ever going to STOP!!!!

Well I can't see me getting very many courgettes or chillies this year.  I did, however, have my first gorgeously sweet mange tout yesterday evening which I came across when I was checking everything for signs of flowers.  

Talkback: Aphids

Posted: 22/06/2012 at 19:54

Argh! I've just found a load of aphids on my chillies in the greenhouse.  I've taken them out, squished as many as I could find and given them a couple of soapy water sprays as well as spraying the other greenhouse plants.

I think I'll leave the plants outside for a few days, we're due some more heavy rain which might wash any that I missed off the plants.  I hope it doesn't get too chilly for them.

Oh, that's pretty.  

Fritillaria meleagris from seed?

Posted: 17/06/2012 at 18:39

I'm going to give that a go too, assuming it's the same procedure for other sorts of fritillaria.

Too late to plant more seeds?

Monty was sowing beans on Friday's Gardeners World.  Since only one of the eight I sowed germinated, I might try sowing some more as well.


All I have to do is find a space for them!  Can French beans be grown in pots?

seeds not germinated

I sowed some celeriac seeds, two batches about 3 or 4 weeks apart and there is not a sign of life from them at all.  I only got one French bean to germinate from the 8 that I sowed.  It's the first time I have tried either of these so I don't know how good at germinating they are normally.  My courgettes have been really bad this year; I think I sowed about 8 in total and only 2 have grown.

I have kale and rudbeckias coming out of my ears though.
