Thanks, the first picture is what all the other seedlings look like. As expected. I thought it wasn't right that these two thugs were so big. But I thought I'd check. Thanks treehugger80

Is this a dierama seedling?

Sorry, my second post on identifying seedlings. But I sowed some dierama 'blackbird' seeds. Got nothing but this one plant. Weed or the real thing?


Many thanks for your time.

Hi,


I sowed some jalapeno seeds, most are still at the couple of leave stage, but I got these two guys shoot up. I don't know what a jalapeno seedling should look like. So, I'm not sure if they are a rogue weed or pepper plant. Any thoughts?

Autumn sown sweet peas

I've sown some sweet peas, do I have to pinch out the tops when I have about two or three sets of leaves?

Spent summer tub soil, what to do next?

Posted: 01/10/2016 at 16:05

Thank you Bob for your reply  


It is just a multipurpose compost. 


What do you do with spent multipurpose compost, can you tip it into your borders? Will it help improve soil structure? I wouldn't  know how to dispose of it otherwise. 

Spent summer tub soil, what to do next?

I'm not sure what you do next..when you've planted a large tub for summer annuals and then want to clear that and use the same tub for winter plants.


Do you have to remove all the soil, as the soil is spent and will have very little nutrition? Or can you add some nourishment, like chicken pellets and replant into the same soil?

I grew 3 from seed. Mine died  My friend's did really well and flowered after about 4 years then they moved house. My daughter's flowered after 6 years, now it's huge and they've just moved house.


See original post

 That's promising, thanks for the reply. 

Wisteria advice

any advice? I'm not sure if it's worth putting any effort into keeping it, and therefore chucking it out if it won't flower for many many years. 

Wisteria advice

My mum bought a Wisteria (9cm pot) and then gave it to me. She'd bought it from a supermarket for £4.


Since I didn't know much about Wisteria, I had a read about them online and found the best ones to buy are those grafted. I checked the plant and it's not a graft. So I contacted the supermarket to clarify and they replied it's from a cutting, so not grown from seed and not a graft. 


Any information, experience or advice with Wisteria plants grown from cuttings. I read that those from seed may not flower for 20 years and those on grafts are more reliable, so should I expect one that's from a cutting to be in between?


Any experience from people buying Wisteria bought from Supermarkets?


Many Thanks for reading
