paper pots

Posted: 26/05/2013 at 21:34

I grew loads of things in home made paper pots, things things that needed long pots, i made them 5inches long, never had a problem, was it on a particular seedling?

Does anyone know if it would be ok to cut all the leaves of the helebores now, as they are taking a big space in the garden?

New EU law to block gardeners collecting and growing from their own seeds.

So, how will they enforce this? They will have a job on there!

 i couldnt get the pics before. I looked at the yellow pansy, i think if it was spray damage the leaves would have been spotted with damage, that is a line just around the edge. My pansys and sweet william went like that in that cold snap in april. Not convinced that one is spray.

Depending on where you live, its much to cold to put annual bedding out yet,  the white on the leaves is cold night damage. I left a tray of something out last night, and in that short time they have gone white, they wil probably pick up when it warms up a bit.

They will grow 2 shoots from the base, so perhaps the slugs have done you  a favour, saves you picking them out.

Please go easy on the slug pellets, i only put about 4/5 per plant if that.
