Damping off help

Posted: 10/05/2012 at 17:46

I don't have the space in the flat to grow them in indivudual pots hence the mulit occupancy. The first lot germinated so badly I put all the rest in (free seeds from a seed swap). I need to learn to water less! I'll try to pot them on later today or tomorrow.

I palm of my extras to my friends!

Damping off help

Just spotted that one of my marrows have died off damping off (Not doing well this year on this account) but the other two in the same pot are fine and just about to develp their first true leaves. Should I dig them out asap or can I leave them. I am worried that it might spread to the two healthy ones or are is it too late to save them too?

It sounds more and more that I should dig it out. I have a Clematis Cassis next to it so maybe I should get another one with a longer flowering period. I am not overtely found of this plant but I don't really like just booting a plant out without a new home when it is in good nick. I have at the other end of the wall a zephirine drouhin so maybe so I am in two minds whether to get a clematis or a rose (or perhpas something else that climbs). Maybe I should use my t&m voucher for a climber.

I have two of these that have finaly recovered (ok one has totally) after two winters and are now flowering quite well but if they are going to earn their keep they need to do that again and again or else I'll repace them with something else. They were here when I moved to my flat so I have no real sentimental connection to them. So how do you prune them so they flower and dont get out of hand. the one of them that has recovered the best is growing at an alarming rate and if I let it just be I think it will become too big.

Has anyone here grown them? Got some from a seed swap some months back. Planted the bulbs some weeks ago in modules but no sight of life yet. Weatherwise I can understand why they haven't since It's been raining for at least 40 days and 40 nights here in Bristol (it feels like it). Dug up one last week to see that they haven't rotted. The bulblet was intact but not spotting. Is it just too early for it germinate due to the cold?

Is it possible to grow them in containers? Thinking of giving a veg loving friend one but he has lost his border due to the landlord building a bike rack on the site.
