Seed and plant swap 2015

Posted: 07/11/2015 at 22:55

If the weather drys up a bit I can get seeds from my yellow montbretia, it's not as tall as the orange if anyone's interested. Still got some of that big yellow calendula also some Bronze Beauty calendula.

Hi Poddington

I picked a fluffy seed head from a clematis when we met up with Dove in September,( Hostafans poly tunnels are an Alladins cave)  they are now about 2 inches tall, i just put the whole seed head on the compost.

the article says pick in October and ripen on a sunny window sill! Where are we going to get one of those from

i wouldn't describe them as custard like, I love them but they are very seasonal.

i don't think they would grow in many places in this country. Has anyone grown one on this site I wonder.

Raining again, just when we had a big job down in Cornwall, not worth the drive down if its like this.

And...the battery just packed up on the car. Oh well, woe is me. Perhaps I am starting the winter blues!

I had a big white German Shepherd who was petrified of fireworks or thunder and he would try to get in the most stupid places far too small for him, like the back of the video cabinet. I would have to take him to bed with me then he would hide under the dressing table.
Good to see you back Steve x

Saw them do this on tv the other night, cut it down to six inches then inject the weedkiller directly down the stalks, lots of it. Probably need to do it a few times but thst was one of the big gardens, cant remember now which one.

I always keep this years cuttings in the cold greenhouse for the first winter, plant out in the Spring when they are hardened off.
