Hi Lyn

I did email and apparently they were simply overwhelmed by the response to the offer. I do now have a second expected delivery date so fingers crossed that they do arrive this time.

See original post

 That's good then, you won't be dissapointed.🙂

I bought some Hellebores and Penstemons some years ago, very good plants, I've multiplied them by hundreds since, so a real good bargain.

they usually tell you when then are to start dispatching,  Sometimes you wait months, depending on the plants, but they will answer emails so if your worried, just write to them,

That looks a very small plant for feeding already, I thought they were like tomato plants where you feed once they start producing fruits.

i would just cut off the two marked leaves, the plant looks ok, but I'd give it a chance to grow under its own steam before it has too much feed poured into it.

Bit like Delphiniums, do you have any of those?

I don't think you can blame any company if your plants get devoured.

Hardy Osteospermum not growing

Just a thought, they weren't in that tea bag type netting were they, if so, they won't grow, perhaps you can look and peel all that off, if they were indeed grown in those. A lot of plugs are.

My guess....Campion, as the OP said she actually planted them.

Keep plugs in flower pots and pot on until you have a big plant, tiny ones will be no good planted direct. 

This is reason most peoples plugs fail whether it be from T & M or J. parkers. 

Concrete pots and troughs

Posted: 21/05/2017 at 09:16

I've got a row of concrete pots that someone we knew made and sold for pocket money, she used to do parties, and also made little concrete animals. I've had the for 45 years, never had one break and we had some extremely cold winters when we lived in Kent. 

I think there must be some you tube instruction, I know ebay sell the molds because I was looking into doing some. 

Plasticiser would be the best to use. Good luck with your project.

i could take some pictures of mine later if you want to see them. 

Problem tomato plants

Posted: 19/05/2017 at 22:43

I would pick those flowers off to give the plant more energy to grow a good root system, plenty of time for flowers, they are too small to bear fruit yet.

what will you do with them when they are grown, plant outside or in tubs in the greenhouse?
