It's a house plant, Begonia Rex. My mum had a mania for propagating them by cutting up the leaves, then she couldn't throw any away.😀

Thanks Lyn. We moved here last summer and I can't remember if there was a geranium there. They did have a few, I'm just not sure if this was one of them 

See original post

 Hope you kept it, mine's  just started to flower.

Hostas from seed

Those seeds you gave me Hosta, coming a long really well, bit small because I haven't had a chance to repot this year, but all germinated and grew on well. 

Cant remember the name, Frances something?

Privet hedge by post

Posted: 09/06/2017 at 19:50

I bought mine online from J. parkers, 20 for £20.00, extremely good plants and grew very quicklY. They were bare roots though, which have to be planted in the winter, if you want to plant them now, you need pot grown ones. 

Online as good as anywhere. Lots of places will sell them. Don't buy them too tall, and when you plant them, cut a few inches off the tops, then pinch out as they grow, that way you will get a thick hedge right from the base.

Could the second one be an Evening Primrose? 

Problem overcrowding tomatoes

Posted: 09/06/2017 at 19:41

As Dove says, , and dont forget those tomato plants will get to six feet tall, so they need a cane put in from the start. The squash plants  spread right out, so give them plenty of space, in the garden, about three feet apart at least. 

What is this plant?

I grows  everywhere in my garden as well, we call it Penny or Navelwort.

First compost heap - how does this sound?

Can you build it in solid wood planks, it needs to get hot, we make a cubic metre every two months, in solid wood boxes with thick carpet on the top, tuned every week at the start, then transferred into another, then start again. You need a few containers if you want  to make a lot So when the first is full you can upturn it to the next and so on.

Those big blue containers are good for storage after it's gone right down in the wood ones.
