It may be because it's too dry. ,up to the longest day the onions need to be kept reasonably moist.

I pinch out most things but never with edible peas.  Got pods almost ready to eat.....albeit just a few plants (impatience at the time sowing less than usual) 

The peas will come Highley Delighted. 

Any idea's please

Just heard tottenham have just been taken over by Fulham and tramsferring to,Craven Cottage.....that was a surprise.

I think simplicity is the answer there Coys.....a Criss cross of paths for kids to walk up to the top of the hill and down again....almost sang that 

In the quadrants berberis atro nana and silver santolinas alternately.  

How long does it take you?

Latin names roll off the tongue for me too.........used to,think it a little pompous but now it's natural ESP when a particular plant is required.

Nice post Mike.....made me chuckle. 

I too agree with Dove's next post

Exciting stuff Punkdoc.  I can sense your impatience from here   My nephew will be on paramedic duty there....always gets  that "gig". (must be sheer luck)  you might meet up with him

Hot morning.....many are complaining that it's much now but not me.  Suits me just fine 

There's a dahlia I see in the  morning in far corner of the lawn that I tend to gauge overnight growth rate.  Suddenly, It has grown so I now need to stake it.  plants seem to be chasing the longest day

Hiya philippa

Its such a safe treatment that exact measurements are not necessary. I add a tablespoon to 10 litres of water or a teaspoon to a litre spray. Early morn or evening when sun is not directly on the plant. A second spray in 4 weeks or so too
