Storing dahlias

I have never used Sulphur and in 20 years of growing Dahlias have not lost many.

Which LED Grow Light

Posted: 18/11/2016 at 09:06

I don't think grow lights are the way to go at all.

What plants need is natural light.

What will you do when the seeds germinate and there is nowhere to put them that has natural light?

I would plant them in pots and put them somewhere they will not get too wet.

Hi all.

Pitch dark and snowing here, definitely a curl up with a good book day.

Have a good one Hosta, I am getting desperate for some heat, but have a bit longer to wait.

Germination Failure

A few ideas.

The loft is not a good place, not enough light, a window sill would be better.

Seeds should not be watered that often, water when you sow them and then not again until they germinate [ as long as the trays are covered ]

Seed compost is fine, but MPC will do as well.

Can anyone tell me what my tree is

I don't think it is a Jacaranda.

I have seen them in S. Africa and they all had purple flowers, which did not look like that.

Sadly I don't know what it is.

Hi all.

Lovely and sunny today, so have been outside hacking at trees.

OH at an in interview at Manchester University today, so fingers crossed, even though it will mean lots of traveling. At the moment she is failing to keep me in the manner to which I am accustomed.

Got to go out and buy some mussels, as they are her favourite food, thought I might do a sea food risotto.

The news from Syria last night was even more awful than usual. I have heard they are going to have to move the hospital, as it is now too near to the bombing.

Have a good day.
