You can plant them closer than that -I do-that distance is if you want exhibition blooms-for cutting in the garden it is not so vital -just give them room to grow.

peas and frost

Runner beans are a tender veg-they don't like the cold let alone a frost.

Peas are hardier

FC-have just googled it you are right-GOLD STAR

Off to Spain on Friday-have just checked temperatures and according to this it will be 34C on Sunday-that sounds rather warm

Still no joy from the job hunt?

What's the weather like in your area?

Constant drizzle all day in Southampton heavy rain foreacast for overnight-supposed to get drier by the end of the week-but I won't be at home-I shall be here

Non flowering : Lilac - In a pot

Posted: 09/05/2012 at 13:45

A lilac 5 years in a pot with little flower?

It doesn't sound happy at all-in my opinion it need putting into the garden-I don't think I would consider growing one in a pot.

daffodils and tulips

Yes they will-leave the foliage alone for at least six weeks and feed with a general fertilizer.

It was just some lengths to prop up the cover over the chicken pen-not that interesting but useful.

It is still raining

No-well not at this time of year.

Compost, they reckon !!!

Posted: 09/05/2012 at 11:23

I have just got back from B&Q on a different mission-but noticed they are still selling the new Verve compost as 3 for £10 which people were buying by the shed load and also the same stuff in 125 litre bags.

In addition in125litre bags were last years peat based version which must make it 18 months old unless they have bought in new supplies-so either they are trying to clear old stock or have been taking note-who knows?

Back from the beige day

Got the wood I went for and did that fateful thing of looking at the plants and the reduced section bought 2 packs of 12 petunias-one down to a £1 the other down to £1.50 less the 10%and another 25p off--now will have to sort them into the sick-bay.

Kate-your request came to late-and also I have to blend in-in hindsight I should have gone back to the fuschia
