I've already got my entry in

It must be an exceptional year for the fungi-Flo's technical descriptions and pics are very good

Pam-it is tricky keeping up

Moss on vegetablepatch

Posted: 26/10/2012 at 15:43

I have never heard of anybody using a moss killer for lawns on a vegetable patch-just push the hoe through the soil it to keep it open.

It is a sign of poor drainage and compacted soil though.

Far too late -I am afraid-you could try sowing some broad beans now for harvest next year.

Take old video tape-wrap yourself in it from head to toe-you are now a halloween mummy

To get cannas to flower we need a long hot Summer-the last two have been disappointing to say the least-hopefully next year

You may not be doing anything wrong-location obviously is not ideal-but you will need to lift them and keep under cover over the winter and keep those fingers crossed for 2013.

As regards the watering-what is meant by sparingly is virtually nothing at all- you let it dry out- but not dust dry- and then just give it a dribble -what you don't want is a plant- that is not actively growing- sitting in a load of damp cold compost-you are just trying to keep the plant ticking over in the winter.

Lottie-can't you just "accidentally" knock the paperwork on the floor and everybody will rush to your aid and help sort it?

Jo -will send emergency aid-extra blankets and such like,warm drinks ,hot soup..........

Becks-comic with a free toy?

I've seriously never seen Star Wars all the way through-Chris I would keep you clothes on if you can't bare to part with your copy

What you are looking for is sturdy plants -if it get too warm and with insufficient light they grow fast but get leggy with lots of soft growth-not good

What you are looking for is root development rather than flowers at this stage-so that is why non-flowering shoots are preferable and also why flowers buds are removed

But it if you want to let it flower then why not-it just depends on what you want to do with the plant long-term

Leaf blower-you are going to use it at most for 1 month a year-off and on-you can hoover up the leaves from the grass using a mower on a high setting-that also chops the leaves a bit-ok you have to empty the box but you have to empty the bag on a leaf blower

Exercise from raking and sweeping-to me unless you can share with neighbours and share the cost it is a luxury item.
