Late seed sowing

Posted: 14/04/2013 at 08:27



You havent missed much not getting your sweet peas in yet. I sowed indorrs maybe 4 weeks ago in propagagoe, got good fast growth. 2 weeks ago pinched out and started to leave outside in daytime. a few days ago potted up and started to leave outside all the time but now they are at a standstill.

I guess if you sow in place now they will catch up just as fast. Im thinking of sowing another batch in place to compare.

Its supposed to be sunny here today! thats what they need!


Cmon already spring...

Sunflower hearts indeed but the birds in my garden hav their own fav foods.

The Blackbirds and the starlings love the Mehlworms. The Robin and the blue tits like the suet pellets, (epecially the red berry ones.) The Wood pigeons eat all the stale bread or cakes and the pig bad magpie just likes scaring all the others. I shoo the magpie away, its just nasty. Oh and the cows get some leftovers to and the darn seagulls just love making noise and crap on my car!

Fuchsia voodoo is nice. flowers around 5 cm across in stunning purple and pink. was lovely in the baskets last year but didnt make it though the winter (i should have potted them up to overwinter earlier i guess. still new to gardening but learning)

have some climbing fuchsias ordered this year also. cant wait to get them.

Talkback: Mulching with compost

Try searchin "back to eden" on youtube.

That should resolve your dry soil issue, just remember, its a mulch, do not digg it in.


Hope that helps

I have to say its only been recently that i realised capital letters means shouting on the forum. I know when I used capitals it was to emphasise points made.
I understand the frustration of macks-boy....he aired this correctly here only to be told he is "shouting".
seconded. thats what I meant when I said maybe he doesn't realise CAPS= shouting in forums.

Man goes to chicken farmer says he wants to start farming chickens and buys 1000 chicks.

Man goes back to chicken farmer the next month and buys 500 more.

The man goes to the chicken farmer another month later and buys another 500 chicks at which point the chicken farmer states; "your chicken farm must be coming along well now."

To which the man responds; "Sadly no. I'm not sure what Im doing wrong. Either planting them to deep, upside down or to close together..."

Maybe Macks-boy doesn't reasize that CAPS = shouting in forums.

We used T&M for the first time this year. We got a partial delivery a few weeks ago and another yesterday of fuchsia plugs. all top  condition.

J. Parkers on the other hand send me a free packet of 10 Hostas with my order wich proved to only be 8. When I emailed to advise that there were only 8 they stated they had packed 10. Im not to bothered with that though as they were free but if it were any of the paid items I would complain.


All in all i find that with anything else you get what you give, so if you are polite you usually are treated the same way back.
