jersey plant direct

Posted: 30/04/2014 at 16:20

If they were mine, I would not plant them out in the garden until next April or May, kept in pots they can develope a root system, you can keep them in over winter, up to you though, sounds like you planted them out direct last year.

They are an easy lot to grow so hopefully you will have no probs if you pamper them a bit.

I get people to save these for me, even though they are free, I still clean and re use.


They will be going to McDonald's next as they also think they sell food. 



Nothin to do with me what other people eat.

Lupines leaves seem to be dying

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 16:47

Each plant will grow to about 2ft diameter, so put it in a large pot. I dont think lupins are really suitable for containers though. They bloom early then you are left with nothing till next year.

Not white fly, they dont have visible wings and are very flat, almost shield bug shaped.  How long is the body Tom?

I read yours as that John, but dinahs sounds like tops eaten, leaving stems poking out of the ground.

If its 12 inches tall I would chop of the old dead outside leaves and put it in the ground asap  Lupins are best planted out, and are hardy this time of year. they really dont like being molly coddled this time of year.

If you are left with little stalks poking out of the soil, that is a sign something has eaten the leaves off, seedling roots, without any leaves usually die.  Could be as simple as slugs, i have never known vine weevil eat the leaves first.

If you think it could be these, just dig up a clump of soil, you will soon see vine weevils.

No to everyone who asks for donations ? Do you agree or disagree with this ?

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 12:47

I think maybe they wont donate  because these sort of set ups are sometimes 5 minute wonders.  My grandsons school did a similar project, after a while it was just overgrown with weeds.   People couldnt get in to water , pick or weed through the holidays and it was left to die.

I think these projects should be funded by the schools.
