Earlier In the year u may recollect I ordered a load of stuff from Parker's that I was well less than impressed with well what has impressed me were the free gladioli bulbs I got from them. Look at this stunner.... Oh my to bar has gone mmmmm off to investigate where that's gone and will post it later!!

I have said it before but will recall the tale... When we moved In to our house I marveled at how despite not tending the garden the flowers were lovely... A few days later and I realised it was a collection of material and plastic flowers throughout and artificial ivy strung up over the fence panel. Lol 4 carrier bags we withdrew from the garden. Just out of badness I keep one of the yellow plastic chrysanthemums in the kitchen ( in a vase!)

Another chilli plant question :o)

Posted: 15/07/2014 at 13:55

I concur do not pinch out. the side shoots chillies are not "cordon plants" by nature they are bushes and so they try to do that! Varieties like Jo long hace less side shoots as they produce a larger stem however chillies like apache should keep the side shoots to promote more growth flowers and eventually fruits. If you have a large chilli plant as mentioned above or cherry bomb then the only issue is weight of the fruit breaking the stem but then you just stake!

Suggestions for plants to grow in pots in shade/wind please?

Fox gloves do well in pots for height and add a bit of ivy. There are some stunning hybrids on the market ATM ( digitalis illumination) hellibores for the spring?

Xhose - Expandable hose - any good?
