Unless they were deprived of light they shouldn't have grown spindly? If you nip out the growing tip then the plants will shoot out from a leaf joint but growth will be checked

Once this winter weather has passed you can harden them off ready for planting in a week or so.

Like Kitty had said it may be early yet for flowers. I have found in the past that the plants are pretty much full grown before the flowers appear.

Courgettes - anyone put theirs out yet?

Posted: 01/06/2016 at 11:51

Hopefully they will go out this weekend, waiting for the North winds to subside.

What is your weather like?

Can't argue with that Plant Pauper, my apologies for assuming it was the English Lakes 

Glad you're having some sunny weather, I'd love to visit one day and do some hiking.

What is your weather like?

12 degrees and constant drizzle! Glad nice in the Lakes though, such a beautiful place and even better when the sun is shining.

Pouring down and cold North wind, brrr! Even the dog wasn't so keen on her walk this morning . Looks like West is best this week, pretty dismal forecast for Kent right into the weekend.

Blueberry bush problems!

Hi Dani, they look OK to me. The fruit should start to swell soon.

Can't say that May is going out in a blaze of sunny weather here in Kent๐Ÿ˜•. Its been cold and cloudy all day with heavy rain forecast overnight. 

Looks like being a decent fruit crop this year, all the currants and berries have a good set and are now safely covered in netting to protect from marauding birds.

Sown Swedes along with some more carrot and beetroot. Fingers crossed for some warmer weather to finish hardening off my courgettes and squashes.

Lovely looking plot GWRS, planted out some French Beans today and did some weeding. Plot is gradually filling and I reckon by the end of June it will be full.
