Thank you

Can I just check a few things about my foxgloves (pam's choice)?

i understand they are biannuals, I sowed them last year and they have flowered this year. Is that the plant dead after that? There will be NO new growth next year? What do you do, do you dig out the plant in autumn or just let it die back?

I'm going to collect some seeds and try growing some in the greenhouse and grow over winter, but also hoping there will be some self seeding going on too.

Next year I want more alliums to grow in between the foxgloves. 

is there anything else I should consider?

I'm looking to buy some weed fabric control, is 100Ggsm the best to have?

I'm not impressed with reviews of weed fabric from b&q, will probably buy from Amazon, unless you have recommendations?

Plant or weed?

Thank you, I didn't want to be fooled with, "but it's so,pretty, it can't be a weed."

Now you've said, I have seen the ones with yellow flowers and dark brownish leaves elsewhere, in neighbours garden I think. 

I might jus have it in a pot.

Would that be something that could over run a boarder? 

it's growing in a shady area of my garden, which I'm growing hosta, ferns and Christmas box.

Sorry this has uploaded sideways. I think it's an iPad thing, because when ever I upload a picture to any forum, this always happens. 

 

Anyhow, does anyone know what this plant (or weed) is?

It's nothing I've brought into the garden and seems to have come in on the wind. 

I would like to keep it and thinking of carefully potting it up

 

Thanks in advance

 

 

Growing Tomatoes in Pots

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 12:36

Great youtube videos, loads of tips I'm picking up. I'm going to change how I loop the twine round the canes from now on. 

I've been trying to grow tomatoes for the past few seasons. I have lovely healthy plants, but I never seem to have many flowers and hence tomatoes.  Think I understand now about picking the side shots off. So hopefully, I'll have a better year this year.

I noticed your 10 litre pots look taller than the 10 litre pots I have (obviously different diameters and height), are the tall pots much better for tomato growing?
