Green manure

Posted: 07/09/2013 at 16:16

I got a winter mix from mr Forthergill's at my local garden centre which contains crimson and broad leaf clover, Westerwolths rye grass and white tilney mustard plus some prince claus crocuses I quite like the look of.

I thought Hungarian grazing rye was really hard to work with. Digging in and such. Better google vetches as I have no idea what that is.

What would you recommend for a small garden? I have previously used field beans and buckwheat. The seeds I have has run out so I thought I'd try something new.

Thanks for your tips. No idea why I haven't had any notifications to this thread. I'll trim off the top and feed it with some worm tea and see what happens. Never had probes with earwigs before so I'll point the finger of blame on the slugs. 

Quite surprised this plant has survived three years in the ground. Thought last years rain would have killed it off like the other one.

Hi, after last year's bad summer I thought my dahlias 'my love' wouldn't survive. Every time they popped up a shoot, the slugs were there to ravish them . This year only one has survived but no flowers. It has grown well and is of normal hight but the top looks damaged (slugs again). Has it just run out of steam from last year and need to bulk up or has the initial slug attack eaten all buds?

Thanks! I didn't recognise it. I'm uses to the blue one bur thw coloue and the cone like buds fooled me. I thought the pink one was very rare but all the ones I've seen here is pink. Not a blue in sight.

Is there a way to make it enlargable?

I hope it is. I quite like the wallflowers I have had.
