ok thanks for the info, see how it goes.
I am aiming to collect seed this year for next years summer plants. Can you collect the seed pods as soon as the petals have dropped from the flowers, the pod is still green or do you have to wait until the pod dies back naturally , dries and bursts
Thanks I will do that
Hi I took some early cuttings from tubers this year, grew them on and put them out, they have lots of healthy green leaves, but no buds/floweres Do I have to wait for next year to see the flowers?
Thanks for the advise will give it a go
growing on in pots and containers
I have been using Westland compost for the last couple of years now and it's ok but it always develops a green crust after a couple of weeks and looks a bit stale. Plants seem ok and I just keep digging over the crust. Is the compost lacking something?
I had one last year spent a full day planting all my seeds into trays marked it all up a job well done until I came home from work the following day and it was all over the floor. I was gutted, I had weighted it but the wind just caught it and away it went. Mine was a 4 tier not the walk in. I couldn't weight it any more without damaging the frame. IT went over twice before I gave up and got a proper one. You may be lucky of you have it somewhere sheltered.
Thank you I think sometimes it's just the GC,s just trying to make a bit more money out of us there are so many different types but that little bit more expensive.
