raspberry progress ...

Posted: 08/04/2014 at 19:27

Did you chop em down to soil level? I'd love to know if they are at the right level of growth too.

My first time with rasps as well. I think I've dropped a clanger with mine....I thought that all the canes were just one plant.... does anyone think I should separate them or just leave them be..... Ta

great question. I always get this wrong! 

Seed germination - any hope for ones sown too early?

Now I don't know if it was the singing that did it, but two of the seeds I'd almost given up on have sprouted!  Yippee! 

Planting suggestions please!

Geum (not sure about my spelling!) will grown almost anywhere and wind is no problem for it.  Lovely flowers as long as you keep it under control.  goes nice with pulminaria and red poppies. 

Help my soils got nits

I think I know what you mean nIn. Teeny tiny little jumpy things? When I used to live in blackheath I had them in the shady areas of the beds..... someone told me they were garden fleas! I didn't ever get bitten but agree that the thought of them makes me feel a bit itchy!

Looks full up enough to me. A wee bit below the top is good as helps with a bit if protection from any wind and also watering - if it's too full it'll slop all over the top. If you do decide to do carrots I'd suggest garlic or onions as a great accompaniment as the smell confuses the naughty carrot fly. A few radishes and quick and v east too. Good luck! Post us some more pictures when its up n running!

What about some beetroot? Really easy (even I have managed to get some seeds to germinate!) and maybe some carrots - yummy! You'll be in competition with your gd in no time!

Thanks MH. Shall do. I emptied one of the trays of sweet peas and there wasn't a sign of any seeds at all.  I'm guilty of over watering too.  good luck with yours. Trial and error (a lot of error on my part) is all part of the learning curve I guess.

What will you be planting in it ngcards? I filled mine up and then planted potatoes....meaning I ended up taking a good layer off in order to get the troughs right!  Looks great.
