Meconopsis betonicifolia

Not easy to grow for us West Country folk, they grow best in Scotland, Alaska and cold areas like that.

they are best in acid soil, not sure about your Cornwall soil, have you tested it.

Not sure what to do with this space.

I love staues in the garden, just got this one for a birthday present.

Would he look nice there? That's a very pretty corner.

I grow seeds in rice/yoghurts pots, that way you just have a few of each and can grow several different lots of plants.

we've all made the mistake of growing a whole seed tray full of one variety then feeling sorry for them and can't throw them away.

We bought this one in August 2011 apart from a new blade last month it's been very good.

Same here NGL, I think you have made a good choice on the tomatoes though.

my trouble is that I collect seeds from my garden and everyone else's as well and when I look at them I want to sow them all.

 

HELLO FORKERS! part two

Well, to be fair to the surgery, you can get to see someone and I have never been refused a home visit all through mums troubles and dads now, but you get a final year student, two weeks ago he prescribed something for dad that we though was going to kill him, we stopped the tablets as soon as we saw what was happening, and an internet friend of mine who is a retired nurse said he shouldn't have been given those with what he's already taking, so I don't want a student doctor, problem is, no one else does either it seems, and I really do feel so very sorry for the main doctor to be flat out with work like that.

(comes up for air).   

Lets hope you get sorted out soon Hosta, we have lots of places to go and gardens to see, you need to be walking fit by the summer.

This year I have Gardeners Delight, San Marzano, tiny Tim, Roma, (Courtesy of Hosta) and Marmande. I haven't bought any this year but will try some different ones next year.

sweet baby sounds nice, so need to choose a bigger one, all mine have to be grown inside.

Best and worst seed and potting compost

Verdun, what does that Wyvale compost smell like, I have tried others that plainly stink. Also, does it contain some peat? 

Too early to plant - NE Scotland?

Andy do you watch this programme, it's around your area.

some good planting tips, but apart from that they now have their own weather station. If you look on the back of your seed packets it will tell you what temperatures are needed to germinate, can you provide those temperatures day and night? 

If so go ahead, I know I certainly couldn't and I live much further south in Devon.  You may be disappointed if you start now.
