Used growbags

Posted: 04/02/2016 at 13:50

I wouldn't use gro bags either, always in large pots/buckets Or in the ground. but another reason not to use last years would be that you don't feed tomato plants until the first fruit has set.

they won't get to that stage in useless compost.

Out od date seeds

My Roma tomato seeds were dated 1995 all germinated. Agree about parsnips and onions though.

I wonder if this will enable the people who couldn't get PM's before to get them now.

In the past, android users couldnt get the PM facility. Well, not unless Chrome was installed. We shall see soon.

But doesn't that give continuity ?- one follows on from the other. 

Once the new thread gets going your Settings gives you the option to go to the last page

No, I meant go to the last page of the old thread, I do go to last page of any new threads.

That's the one, Hosta. Don't cut that in the spring or you won't have any flowers.

How can a certain plant website get away with charging so much !

Posted: 04/02/2016 at 10:09

I only ever buy plants when they are on offer, couldn't afford otherwise. The postage has to be cheap, or free over a certain amount. 

My best bargains were from J.Parker, an Acer, Strawberry Deuztia, and an alamanchia, all 1.99 each and after four years are all over 6' tall. 

I don't have a garden centre very close, but will occasionally buy from Wyvale, or Pine Lodge, both in Cornwall, they have a good bargain range, then it has to be something big enough to split.

Is it the yellow Pom Pom one, (can't think of its name off hand) but it flowers on last years wood, so you don't prune that one in the Spring, or you cut all potential flower growth off, or am I muddling up here?
