Seeds- your opinions and advice

Posted: 10/09/2013 at 11:46

Hi 20Lili02, so  sorry to hear about your loss!

After years of having all my seed packets all mixed up in one box, I finally sat down the other day to sort them. First I sorted them into two shoe cartons, cut and sellotaped to fit the largest packet, one for veggie seeds, the other for flowers. I then sorted them by sowing dates, the earliest in the front. Will have to check them regularly so I don't miss the correct times though!

Others may have much better ideas, will be watching this thread

Lavender border in acid claggy soil - too big a battle?

Posted: 10/09/2013 at 09:40

You might mention to him that lavender isn't exactly "low maintenance". You have to cut it back every year!

Anyone can identify this?

Dipladenia sundavilla, comes in pink and red, it's a climber, can be grown in hanging baskets.

They are beautiful, shame though, that you've only got double ones, which are no good for the bees.

Hi Ian. The normal brown furry Kiwi fruit need a male and a female plant to produce fruit.
