Morning all.

Wet again. I shall be playing in the greenhouse again today.

Have a good one everyone.

Well what a horrible day. Wet, windy and cold, had to wear head torch in the greenhouse to see the seeds I was sowing. Must have crushed a dozen snails that were sheltering in there.

COSMOS pinching out

Some people do, and some people dont. If you do you will probably get more branching and more flowers, so I do.

Slug nematodes

Hiya KEF. If the slugs are alive, then it should work. If they are not, then you have won anyway.

Cornus Kousa

Judy, your Cornus controversa sounds more of a concern. It should be in leaf now. I saw a couple at the weekend on my garden tour of North Yorkshire and they were both in full leaf.

However, I am afraid I dont know why, just wait and see I suppose.

Cornus Kousa

Cornus kousa can take years to flower, and moving them from a pot to the ground may easily delay the plant from flowering for a few years.

Too wet even to go out to shed to fetch seed compost.

You and your sunshine Verdun. You can go off people.

Song, heaven knows I am miserable now, although actually I am looking forward to doing nothing today.

Have a good one everybody.

Members' Public Profiles

Posted: 28/05/2014 at 09:15

It is nice to get a bit more information about people, so it would be good if people did fill in their profiles.

I like to know whether they support a football team that I loath, so I can ignore what they say!!! Also like to know other interests and jobs they do.

I am just nosy I suppose.

Feeding plants in the rain?

Posted: 28/05/2014 at 09:01

FBB., or Gromore are both powdered feeds which will give plants a boost for the next 3 monts. For pots I use the slow release pellets which are supposed to work for up to 6 months.

The advantage of the rain, is that it will help the fertiliser to dissolve.
