great question. I always get this wrong!
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!
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.
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!
That is one keen eye you have there Hostafan1! They are felcos - but I have no idea what number!
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.
I'm very guilty of this. Just come in from the greenhouse and I'm vowing not to water until pots are dry. So many feel damp and have that green mould on the top. I've scrapped most of this off and hope it all drys out. Definitely a lesson for me!
