Weed or Veg IDs from my allotment!

Posted: 07/07/2014 at 20:56

Damn, I was hoping it wasn't going to be anything like bindweed, but it's springing up everywhere it fancies, the third one that is, the first two seem to be isolated seedlings just in one patch. Ta muchly!

the first two reminded me a little of my parsnip seedlings a little so wanted check it wasn't a lucky veg seedling before pulling.

The feathery leaves in the middle

Different, but also feathered leaves

These bigger leaves keep popping up everywhere. I'd love to know what they might be before I yank them all up tomorrow.

 

tomatoes

First time growing toms this year, got 5 established plants, full of unripe fruit and flowers, the leaves at the bottom are a little crisp and curled, but judging by how much fruit we have and the amount of flowers we are still getting I'm not too worried. I'm in Worcester and had a good mix of lots of sun and rain. My strawberries however have struggled. About 6 from three big plants.

 

Rake

Posted: 06/07/2014 at 16:10

One of the reasons I've stopped using the forum is the frequent snide comments about Monty... It's juvenile and just plain unhelpful when it's questions like this. I thought the rake looks pretty useful to me, and it's not as if Monty seems to have the newest equipment, it was only the week before I saw him wearing boots with holes in them, and if I'm not mistaken his tools look pretty well used and old. It's not as if he uses tools every week with brand names emblazoned on them.

 

Frankly I think some of your attitudes are pathetic and tiresome.

I'm not a celebrity worshipper, far from it, but from what I can tell MD rarely seems to cause offense to people, quite unlike other celebrities that grace our TV screens. If you don't like him avoid threads that talk about him, the items he uses, and the methods he uses in order to grow.

Some questions about Basil

sounds like what's happened to my spinach! Bolted already! At great speed! And I've seemingly followed your instructions to a tee Steve!

Oh no that's a shame! If you ever come this way again, I'd love a cuppa tea!

Wish list for seed and plant swap

Posted: 03/07/2014 at 16:52

Bekkie, I live in Worcester, so not a million miles away, but I'm also happy to receive things by post. I have a fair few 'mystery' bulbs that I don't see me using too much, dahlia, anemone's, rhanunculus (sp?) they were the patio bulb sets you get from wilkinsons for a few pounds, we planted a few and they've all come up. The anemone's are something else! A new favourite.

I have a lot of seeds too, some we might not ever grow, all still in date! Mainly veg, but some flowers such as morning glory.

Right now I wouldn't want anyone to see my garden! There seems to be an awful lot of death and decay at the moment!

Rose Cutting Successful - now what??

Posted: 03/07/2014 at 16:38

What are your feelings on 'acquiring' cuttings, there's a solicitors down the road that have a fabulous array of traditional roses, absolutely gorgeous, I know none of the names, but I love to try some cuttings from them. I suppose I should ask permission... but they do hang over the wall somewhat

Anyway, lots of tips on here, thanks!
