Used Tea Bags

Who mentioned cats, not me wouldn't dare.

we could fill a  compost bin in a week with our tea bags eh Hosta..

Andrew, do you make compost as well to use as a mulch?

Here we go again! 

I wish people would look back at the other 1000 threads on this subject.

I always wonder at what stage you stop potting on and put them in the ground.

if you put it straight into the ground it's in a half acre diameter pot Instantly.

Gosh Andrew, you drink a lot of tea, mulching those with your tea bags will be a job for the year.

nice in the cages, you wont get any cats on those. 

Pinching out growing tips

I have just googled the Pritchard, it is quite spikey. As it's campanula it will just all shoot out from the bottom in the spring won't it? 

They don't want to be in the house though.

Are you sure they are campanula, which type, they look like verbena bonariensis.

if they are verbena you can cut then right down.they look woody for campanula, but then I don't know all the different types.

Two of them out at tMorwenstow snapped right off at the ground a couple  of years ago in the wind.

Terrifically windy here, I am scared to walk in the garden, lift up one foot to take a step and practically bowled over. Maybe losing some weight wasnt a good idea after all.

Tea with Hosta later, no going out though, maybe make it as far as the polytunels.

I always use seeds from a red pepper from shop. I find they germinate very quickly straight from plant to compost.
