Super noodle, there will be another series of big dreams, I wanted to apply as the title certainly applies here, well tiny actually, but my 4 year old said she would " hit Monty and throw him in the dustbin" so I didn't dare risk her wrath!!

Glad you got rid of purple chipping we, yuk! I was worried about foxgloves with little ones nearby, when littlest get to 3 you can explain not to eat, but my 20 month old puts everything in his mouth ( lots of pebbles seem to fascinate him! ) I watch on planner if I get chance, it' s the bottom of my gardening programme list though, Danny seems a lovely chap but not a natural, anyway, those who know me know I just love Monty!

Mine are a funny shape this year, they seem to start ok, then just swell at one end, we've only had 2 to eat , there are a few more growing but same happening, they're in a large pot same as last year, probably haven' t fed as much as I ought to have

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 17/07/2015 at 20:49

hi just want to say my sweet peas are great this year thanks for all advice especially david, i fell down again on supporting them, especially as we've had such strong winds, one wigwam has been blown sideways and I haven't been able to right it, also I've grown some up an obelisk and think next year I'll fix some netting in this before I plant my sp's

just got to tell you, dug up these 'charlotte potatoes this week after finding they were very small a month or so ago, the yield wasn't great but the taste was excellent and my little girl had sooo much fun rooting for them, will probably grow them again next year and actually pay attention to chitting and earthing up as I didn't this year, thanks singing gardener for helping me identify!

Great wodges of blackfly on my nasturtiums

Posted: 17/07/2015 at 20:39

i've grown nasturtiums this year for the 1st time, my little girl chose them, they're not my kind of thing, but mine had blackfly infestation overnight, I wiped them off with a damp tissue, that was few days ago not back yet, hurrah!

hahaha Bob you must know me... I am terrible at labelling and often have no idea what things are when they pop up in the garden! although yesterday I did sow a tray of bought seeds ( stocks and delphiniums)..and labelled them! Nut I pulled all the wallflowers up, I did collect a few from lupins that were brown and very dry looking, and I have loads left on delphiniums and mathiola incana (different from the brompton stock seeds I bought)
