I'm not sure if I class as " elderly".

At what age do you think " elderly" applies?

cuttings propagation advice please

Posted: 13/09/2017 at 22:04

Fucshias don't need a propagator they are best taken now, when it's cooler, put then in water, they'll root within the week or two,

i do dozens of cuttings every year, never had a propagator or a plastic bag.

Surely rolling any heavy object onto a sack trolley is good enough, don't think it needs studying. 

2017 tomatoes...

Posted: 13/09/2017 at 10:33

Agree it's lovely to see the end product from a little seed. I have given pounds of tomatoes away, every year, and every year I say I'm not growing so many next year, what do I do, 15 as usual. 

I like to try different ones every year, my dad always grew the old fashioned ones, GD, Alicante, money maker etc. 

I do grow Roma every year for cooking, will do the Jersey Devils again, but the others will be different.

I grew Sweet million this year, but far too many fruits, so will give that one a miss next year.

Help a Student out !

Why don't you go to nurseries and garden centres with a pad and pencil, (does any student know what they are these days) you will find some nice people to talk too all willing to help.

I have never seen so many bags of wood chips than in Hostas garden I think he's aiming for the moon with his flower beds.πŸ˜€

Garden Kneelers

Posted: 13/09/2017 at 10:16

I have one of those kneelers, but don't like it being a few inches from the ground, also it's far too narrow, so never use it.

I have Gel Knee pads, also my favourite is a chunk of foam in a strong plastic bag, think it came from sack with bird food.

Mine's made from Dexion with gro bag trays on top. Very basic, very practical and cheap.
