Everbody- avoid Kesteven South-they have giant slugs as big as your hand

The crocks idea was all about the old fashioned clay pots -one drainage hole, soil based composts and the crocks stopped the hole blocking

With plastics pots,more drainage holes and lighter soilless composts, extra drainage is not needed

Haven't used rooting powder for years- a lot of plants don't need it

Soaking sweetpea seeds has always been contentious -some do- some don't

There are no rights or wrongs really- it is just what works for you-gardening is not an exact science.

Wintering Fuchsias

Despite the fact they are classed as hardy if the roots freeze in the pots they will not be happy-I would not plant them in the borders now -leave that till next spring -that gives them 6 months or so until winter 2013 to get their roots into the soil-I would over-winter this year in the greenhouse and give them extra protection if needed.
