Gardeners World Lavender

Posted: 20/07/2014 at 12:51

Hi, I am relatively new to gardening and indeed it has been a tremendous help to me.

I bought the 48 Lavender offer after seeing it in the Gardeners World magazine. When they arrived the plugs were absolutely soaking wet so I potted them on straight away, about half of them died the next day - the pinks & whites. Hidcote seem to be doing ok. I have noticed a trend from JD Parkers though, everytime I have purchased plugs/bare roots from them, approx half die! 

However, if 24 lavenders survive, I suppose it's still a good deal for under £6.

Too early to chit?

Is it too late for me to chit my salad seed potatoes? I have only just received my order!

I didn't chit my Vivaldi (maincrop) last year - which was my first year growing potatoes -  and they were lovely, but this year I have ordered International Kidney too and wondered if I should chit before planting out later this month?

Any advice would be gratefully appreciated, thanks.
