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!
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!
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.
