I wish you lived near me so we could have a right blether in the garden over a cup of tea, or something stronger

A couple go into a sea food restaurant that serves up only rare sea creatures. The waiter points out in the tank a 'mild green squid' that has facial hair. The couple go for it and the waiter passes it to the kitchen staff.

There is a new chef at the restaurant named Gervais who does not like killing sea creatures, so the waiter asks Hans the dish washer if he fancies having a go. Hans looks the squid in the eye and bursts into tears.

The waiter then has to go through to the couple and explain why they cannot have there meal, because, 'Hans that does the dishes is as soft as Gervais when it comes to mild green hairy lip squid'.

There is this shark dragging this poorly looking octopus type creature behind him,

He swims up to another shark and says, Oi Charlie, here is that sick squid I owe you

Hi

If seeds are to close together this can cause damping off. Try and sow thinly to allow good air circulation. Hope that helps

I'm a baby gardener at only 51! All the male members of my family have been gardeners, I fill it's in me just waiting to come out! I have and still are listening to my Dad who is 87 years young only the other day on the phone he was passing on his tips on growing spuds. I have listened and learned from uncles and grandfathers.

I read every gardening magazine going and lots of books. Even books I'm not into because you can always fine something in there. I watch all the gardening programmes and listen every week to GQT.

But the biggest lesson of all, is get out there and do it. I like learning from my mistakes and take pride in myself when it goes right.

I think this forum is brilliant! No question is to daft, because what works for one is a question, why?... for another.

Begonia problems

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 22:26

Last year my begonias were half a success, this year I'm having another go.

I bought 4 healthy large plugs from the GC. They have been repotted and sitting on a gravel tray in the GH. The pot is moist and I keep the leaves dry, but still they manage to droop and fall off. I'm left with one stump and three sparsely leaved begonia plants.

What am I doing wrong!
