Introducing ivy to a hedge?

Posted: 10/06/2015 at 08:57

Agree with Logan, ivy is good but you need to control it, don't let it take over the whole hedge. When the hedge dies from lack of light the whole lot collapses into a sprawl. Great for wildlife if you have room. It is good for wildlife and if you have somewhere that you can grow it and allow it to reach flowering, go for it. If not, grow something else for wildlife.

The second is Geranium lucidum

Potatoes that turn to mush when cooked

Some spuds go to mush more easily than others, I've always thought it was down to variety of spud.

See how yours go, maybe the rest of the allotmenteers are poor cooks

It's preference for acid soil explains why it didn't last here.

It was still in a pot but being watered with local tap water

Sanjy I quarantine stuff that i have doubts about. Separate into the smallest viable pieces and grow on in a pot for the summer. If nothing appears I plant it out.

Jo, I'll try and be more efficient in saving seed generally this year. I was a slacker last year

Not sure that's legume

It might be this

known as climbing corydalis.

A wonderful thing, the internet. I had something that looked like that years ago and never did find out what it was. Today I googled white climbing corydalis, and there it was, my plant, and maybe yours?

I think its best to start a new thread ifyou have a question though.

Otherwise some people will be answering your question and some will be answering the question at the top of the thread.

Mine are dwindling. I think their site has become too shady. I must sling some seed somewhere better.
