Hi all, I sowed my sweet peas early March, and most have germinated but they are looking quite pathetic and yellowy-green!  I sowed them in seed compost, should I start to repot them in general compost, any ideas?  Oh I should say they live in the greenhouse.  Temperatures vary from -2 - 48 degrees!!

The best onions from seed.....

Thanks both.  I will prick them out this weekend.  At work now so can't do it today!  They are at home by the window.  Once pricked out would you put them in the greenhouse (not heated) or keep them inside for now.  Mr Frost arrived over night, so I am worried if I put them in the greenhouse it may be too cold!

I sowed onion seeds (using an electric propegator) for the first time between Christmas & New Year.  They are still in the propegator, but during the day I take the lids off.  They are 2 - 3 inches long and look like chives!  Is this normal, at what stage do I prick them out?  Any help hugely appreciated!! 

How do you grow large garlic bulbs

Posted: 28/07/2015 at 15:47

Hi all - how do you grow large garlic?  This is my 3rd year of growing it, and its slightly bligger than last year, but not impressive at all.  I thought this was going to be the year, but sadly no.  How much fertilizer do you put in the soil?  We've been using chicken fertilizer, but not on a regular basis.  I've planted various Autumn varieties and they all grow the same, small!!  Any hints and tips hugely appreciated.

Hi all, I have a trellis that is adjacent to our house.  It only gets partial sun.  I've tried clematis and didn't have success, can't remember the variety.  Apart from clematis, any suggestions.  I think it needs to be very hardy.   Any help hugely appreciated.  I would love a rose, but would one survive??
