Making something out of nothing

Posted: 09/07/2013 at 13:05

I used an old loo and cistern fixed to the back wall of my garden and planted a cordyline in the loo and taking plant in the cistern.  Got a lot of attention from the neighbours. Alas it fell to bid after a couple of years of frost.





Chinese Trumpet Flower

Posted: 09/07/2013 at 10:08

A beautiful morning here in Montrose and as I was wandering around my garden I noticed that the Incarvillea Delavayi that I planted as bulbs has produced seed pods where the flowers have dropped.  Can I keep and plant these? Should I cut the flowered stems back or leave them like we do tulips etc?  They are grown in a pot -should I lift them for the winter or leave them be? 

  Can you tell I've never grown them before?

Thanks for the sympathy folks. Will try to do better!

Thanks ...I was afraid of this.  I wonder what happened to all the pepper seeds?  I suppose none of them germinated.  Ah to uproot the intruders and chuck them in the green recycling bin for the council.  I don't want anymore in the compost!

Good Afternoon

A couple of months ago I carefully planted some seeds - Chilli peppers-Red Demon.  I waited patiently for them to peep out from their little pots and then lovingly potted them on.  They are nurtered in the greenhouse and have grown tall and strong, as have all my other pepper plants, many of which are showing fruits.

BUT.....I am beginning to realise that these plants are not what I expected...they have flowered, one white and one yellow, but not the slightest indication of anything like a pepper!   I would like confirmation that I have been duped, mislead and even tricked into aiding and abetting WEEDS!!

Please tell me it's not so.....                   



Where have all the ladybirds gone?

I haven't seen a single ladybugs so far up here in Angus. Loads of slugs and snails, not many greenfly or black f ly. 

Hole in my courgette

One of the other courgettes on the same plant is lovely and fat and going a lovely golden colour so I'll keep my fingers crossed.  Thanks for replies.

Hole in my courgette

Could it be that the flower was pulled off too quickly?  This courgette plant is in a pot and the others courgettes are coming on nicely. This is a golden courgette.


If not the flower, what else is it likely to be?

Thanks for comments.  Though my garden is mainly pots and raised beds, I do have a little bit of border so I'll throw the seed on it in a shady spot.  I have light sandy soil (Montrose is a coastal town) but I have fed it regularly and after 8 years I finally have worms!!   Do they (the plants ....not the worms!q) like any particular soil?  I have no idea what sort they are - small and multicoloured is the best I can do.

My aquilegia has only grown to 12", but flowered and now has seed heads.  Should I collect these and if so, when should I sow them. In greenhouse or outdoors?  My garden is a pot garden - is this why my aquilegia didn't grow as tall as others I've seen?  Any advice valued.
