You've spoilt it now Hosta  I did know what you you meant, just being silly.

KEF , info like that it is very difficult for gardeners just starting out isnt it?

My dad always took off males he said they could make the cucumbers bitter.

Pests from neighbours garden?

Posted: 21/02/2015 at 17:54

Not sure if you can blame your neighbour here, I have the same, a rotting old shed, some huge conifers that birds breed in, a huge wildlife bit, overrun with nettles and brambles. In short, a paradise for wildlife. I still have bulbs coming up. You will akways have birds and slugs and a hundred other pests, as Archie says, thats nature

Looks lovely Yvie, have you got your obelisks well pushed in the ground. I have to put 3ft stakes in mine! I love the curves in the lawn and the seat is gorgeous.

Hosta, flattery will get you everywhere! No need to soak Cerinthe, they are very tough, they self seed as well. You cant inagine the amount of bees they attract, thousands.

Its no wonder new people to gardening are unsure what to do?

I have bought some cucumber seeds for greenhouse growing, this is what I have read for exactly the same seed:

Mr Fotheringill......sow seeds on their edge....pinch out tops when they have 4 sets of leaves.......leave the males on to pollinate they need these to make cucumbers.


Thomson and Morgan......sow seeds on their sides....pinch out tops when they reach 6ft......take off male flowers or they will be bitter.

Two top companies, both opposite conflicting cultivating.

I wont be doing mine until mid May at least, if there is a frost it will nip the top buds. 

Up to you of course, we all do it differently.
