echinacea

Posted: 07/10/2012 at 11:35

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.

 

echinacea

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? 

Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 29/09/2012 at 13:03

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.

Chillies problem

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.
