HELLO FORKERS!

Chicky, I too received a clematis from Taylors.  Agree excellent value.  Should add Taylor's to the "good guys" thread 

Oh!  Whoever lay on that "cushion" last night should know it was a bag of dried manure I forgot to clear out.

Not quite sure what's required here buf your son sounds BRILLIANT.   I like him already...ha ha.  

Cos my brain is not in gear yet can I start off with apple mint, asparagus, aubergine, borage, Beetroot, carrot, chard, coriander, ....

Sorry, gardenjeannie if I have missed the plot here so will read this thread later.

Your not overwatering are you Mark?   Sounds like it to me.  They wont want too much water now ...nights are still pretty cold.  

When warmer and plants actively growing then you can water well

It's how I do it too Mike.  Hope your health is good today 

Plant addiction

Charlie dimmock was a big reason for me tuning in to ground force....

Plant addiction?  Me too.  For hellebores, salvias, heleniums, agastaches, astrantias, etc etc.

Many new plants this year too.  Developing a taste for dahlias esp foliage colour and single flowers.

Well, I think phostrogen takes some beating for plants in pots. For sturdy growth and good flowerimg it is excellent.   For edibles in pots fish blood amd bone and seaweed extract.

My point is that any thinning out of cells/modules simply disturbs the unit.  Of course.....unless monogerm varieties.....Beetroot produce more than one seedling but still better to remove when established in their final position.  Just logical
