It loks a little like rudbekia, did you have some of that, if not we will have to wait for Nut to appear.

I wait for about 3/4 inches of growth, after having started them off in a dryish compost in a seed tray.

 I  have never heard of soaking them, you usually keep them fairly dry when starting off to prevent rot, but if it works for you, then thats ok.

Anybody know what this will be?

I wouldnt plant it in the garden, it will take liberties and take over.

Decision of the day

Posted: 21/04/2014 at 17:41

We had so much rain yesterday its filled all the butts, and some of them are huge!.

My decision of the day, after a long days gardening, do I cook the roast lamb dinner (did put meat in at 3)or make a sandwich and put me feet up?

Do I talk too much.?

You seem to have a captive audience here Mike, keep posting, you made your 'last post' thread on the other site, so stick it out here.

To be honest, i dont think these sympathy threads do a site much good, they sometimes flame bait, just grow a thicker skin and k

eep posting.


would never click the ignore button on anybody, but some people  do, thats up to them.

Growing in tea bags

Posted: 21/04/2014 at 10:41

Its because b & q used to grow everything in polystyrine trays, they are going for a bio degradable material. (Only the material the bag is made of not the tea bag) 

Just imagine buying a 25kg sack of tea to use as compost,  hell, thats one big car boot. Not to mention the cost!!!
