Saxifrage Problem

Ours does that, we just ignore it and it covers up again, just give it a little rake with your fingers. Is it like this, this has been here forever. Goes brown then comes back, no probs.


Sunflower or weed!?

If you have tadpoles you have to have a very 

shallow end so they can get out, or rocks above the water line.

I dont take mine off at all, i think it shelters the sun so stays on through the summer i can open the windows and door for through draught.

council recycled compost

I bought 6 x 80 lt bags of Bullrush, used it all now for seeds and potting on and re potting fuchsias and geraniums, not one bit of rubish in it, not a bit, you get what you pay for, its 10.00 per bag.

My local council in Devon wont sell it, they admit its a bit rubbish, they put it on their own parks and gardens.

Osteospermum problem

I pulled mine out from last year and grew new ones from seeds, blue and white. Everyone germinated and are now good sized plants. Rather treat them as annuals and grow new each year.

I agree with tootles about the slugs, they dont eat them just live there.

Leaf salad

Posted: 16/04/2014 at 15:34

With radish I find its best to pick the seed one at a time and space them 2 inches apart, do this every 2 to 3 weeks then you will have a constant supply, yours will all be ready at once and you can only eat so many in a week.

Same with the lettuce, think how many you would buy in the shop in a week.

Little and often is the way to go. Unless you are starting a greengrocers of your own.  That would be my dream!
