Spring Bulbs not flowering

Posted: 10/02/2015 at 10:15

You wont see the flower buds at only one inch or so tall, give them time. I have only just got some snowdrops out and they are the first.

If you havent noticed any rodent burrowing in them, just wait a bit.

Mark, would the barley straw liquid be any better?

Thanks RB, probably a waste of his time though, we have, at last got some antibiotics that suit her, not sure if she's any better but breathing better.

When Should I be planting my seeds?

Posted: 09/02/2015 at 12:40

The ground is far to cold for carrots, you cant transplant them from trays.

Wonder why everyone is in such a rush, can see some disasters coming soon.

Especially started in heated propergators, they will grow even quicker in those, so even longer to try to keep warm indoors before planting out in May.

Verdun, why dont you just remove the predictive spelling from your ipad.

Seed Sowing Time Yet?

Posted: 08/02/2015 at 16:27

I do the same as Matt and Lizzie, I feel so sorry for people that sow early then come on and ask why their seedlinds are leggy, damping off, or just plain dying.

Spend the time reading up on what you want to grow, take the mid planting directions, so if the packet says Jan to April go for March. You will get much stronger plants, they wont be leggy. Plan where you will plant them, heights spread etc. 

I have just sown my tomato seeds, but wouldnt recommend it to anyone. I have the conditions to keep them and they are never grown outside.

I would even sow these until March, they like warmth, you darent plant them out until mid May at the earliest. Have you got space to have them indoors, for the next 4  months? They will grow tall so will need staking.

Sarah says plant Jan to March, the latter is better. Have you got some more seeds,

I would agree with Bob in this instance, normally it would have been cut right down on planting, it sounds like its got weak growth now, letting it flower wont do it any favours, gosh! I'm a hard gardener 

another pair of eyes please
