composting new biodegradable bags

Posted: 19/03/2017 at 16:55

The super markets have a bin outside or in the foyer where you can put the bags in for them to recycle. My SM Delivery takes them back and any other plastic bags I may have,

my GH bubble wrap disintegrated this year, just crumbled away, tiny bit of plastic everywhere.

There's no sign of buds yet on mine either, but I'm sure there will be later on. Maybe give it a bit longer, unless, as Dove says, you pruned it a bit late? 

It needs to be said

I did look at that one Jeff , but taking in the size of my garden and the amounts of plants I grow, thought I'd better go for a giant size!! 

A reviewer saId 1 tablespoon to a pint of water,  is that what you do? 

By the way, was it you that gave me the False Fresia seeds last year?

Ok then, in for a penny!  I'll let you know later how we get on. 

someone did point out that just because a product is 'organic' doesn't mean its good for your food growing.  Castor oil plants and Hemlock organic.

I look forward to seeing the progress of your seeds. 

Thye take a long time to grow and even longer to flower but hopefully you will have success eventually.

Deadheading daffodils

Posted: 18/03/2017 at 11:07

I once knew someone who worked in a Stately home, where the whole of the front lawns were covered in daffs, I asked him how long it took to dead them all, he just laughed, who would have time to do that He said! But they came up every year as beautiful as ever. I just walk along and pick of the heads, no time to cut the stems from low down. 

Each to his own.πŸ˜€

Lavender from seed

Don't be in a rush to plant them out GD, maybe May/June.  They may do better being potted on once more before going out.
