Carrot problem

I grow groups of chives round mine but never had it, dad reckons she cant fly this high above sea level. I dont know if he's having me on, but in all the years he's grown them the fly has never struck.

Can be avoided by placing a 2ft high plastic barrier around your carrot bed or grow in a 2ft high raised bed.

A doctor told me that its no use taking vitamin c without zinc, the body wont absorb it, so I take a multi vitamin that contains zinc, never had a cold nor OH either and he used to get some stinkers.

Anyone else heard of that?

I dont have a variagated one. Mine are light or dark blue. The light blue has reddish leaves. 

How short lived are they Verdun, I have pulled lots of bits off and replanted so I suppose thats the best thing to do.

DD, venison, how nice. My daughters friend is a gamekeeper in Cornwall so she gets the odd game given to her.

 I did used to ice skate, cant wear them though the blade sinks in the mud, rollers are much better.

Have you bought them as indoor bulbs, if so just leave them, they store their nutrients in the bulb.

If they are for garden or tub use, they need to be planted deep,but I would think they are for indoors. After they have finished flowering, let them die down in the pots, then dry them off and store. Plant them out in the garden next September.

Pop up for pie Verdun, only about 45 minutes drive. Mum did enjoy them, I also made some yorkshires, cats eaten one!

I have planted out some more perennial sweet peas, still some left. All the tulips are now in, wow, amazing what I can do when I get my skates on. Time to get dinner ready.

I could send you some in the Spring Susan. I should think someone will start a seed and plant swap thread in Jan/Feb time.
