I think my sweet peas have sunscald - what to do?

Posted: 17/04/2014 at 13:34

I don't think the April sun in the uk is strong enough to damage a sweetpea Catie.

There's a growing sweet peas thread on the forum

Have a look through that and if your question isn't answered already ask on there and I'm sure David will

wheat and rape not quite next door this year Dove. The rape was being sprayed this morning, the wheat yesterday

weeping elm, yes. hostafan did say it had a weeping habit. Ptelia doesn't. 

Back to my first suggestion then hostafan.

Fritillary Seedlings

If they're still green I'd feed them and leave them where they are. They'll die back soon and you can prick them out when they reappear.

I wondered if that was a trick of the camera Dove. I've just been out and looked at the bark of the Ptelia and it's a good match. Maybe hostafan will find the other photo.

There was a nasty smell of aggro-chemicals ion my garden

Cutting Back Penstemons

That's good Abi. You do it while I just think about it

But I've only got 2 and I've done 1.

I've got a couple of interesting little species penstemons though, they only need the flower stems taken off


How do you all know so much

Posted: 17/04/2014 at 08:37

When it comes down to it I don't know much at all.

I've grown a lot of hardy plants and can recognise them.

I can grow hardy plants  from seed.

My garden is more of a wildlife reserve than a normal garden.

I couldn't run a veg patch or look after tender plants.

and I still can't keep cuttings alive.

Ptelia trifoliata would be a second choice, or possibly a first choice it it's that small and making seed. The flowers smell lovely
