Good luck Pauline!  Hope they work for need to expect some to die / not work, but that's gardening for you... enjoy watching and waiting to see if anything appears....

Let us know how you get on, and welcome to the message board!

quote from one of the volunteers who were delivering:  'I haven't been able to stop smiling all day just from having been involved in this task!'

Also:  'who needs an ice-cream van when we've got the nursery bus???'

Would you all like to see some photos of our plants being delivered to the flood victims?  See below!!!

So many messages of thanks on the facebook pages now.  People talking about bringing smiles back on faces, real morale boosts, such happiness at seeing things green and growing among the misery.  This week Moorland celebrated the first three families moving back into their homes!  So big smiles everyone, and thank you all again so much....

Fast (annual?) climbers for instant effect... now?

Posted: 15/06/2014 at 22:03

Thanks - will nip to garden centre tomorrow and get some nasturtium seeds - or young plants if I can find them.

How fast do you think they would grow if planted now?  Is there anything I could do to speed them up?

Oh dear.  I've messed up.

For various reasons (including new puppy!) I'm terribly behind in my gardening tasks and have also managed to kill off my young sweet pea plants.

I've got two obelisks (5 foot tall) by my front door, which were destined to be covered with sweet peas this summer.  Is there anything that I can plant now to grow up them which will give me similar sort of show over the summer? 

Any suggestions welcome!
