What plants go well with lupins?

Posted: 15/03/2014 at 23:51

Young lupins suffer badly if not fully hardened off.  Lupins that have been established are as tough as old boots but plants bought this year or have been brought on in the GH need to avoid sharp frosts .  So, best to keep imdoors at nights for few weeks yet

Where is Woody and Clueless?  Miss their posts.  Hope both are well 

Favourite vegetable to grow?

Posted: 15/03/2014 at 20:12

If only one choice it would have to be carrots.  Eat them like sweets for the entire summer

Hello Mark.....it's not picea albertiana conica, is it?  I wonder if it's a form of spider mite, picea mite.  Bit early but if it was indoors before you bought it.   Spraying with water is the solution to this. It's a regular problem in the summer for me but dampening works very well

Knew you would say that Dove ...ha ha.

I actually do differently for a friend of mine....doesnt look as good though 

Yes, for me it's about the foliage on a dense shrub.  Better flowers elsewhere methinks.

But, we all do things differently and that's great 

Oh eck

I'm not worried.  Once punched an aggressive dog on the nose and put him in his place.....that chihuahua didn't bother me again.  I will do same to great white,,of course 

Seriously, not a great attraction for the holiday season down here

LILY BEETLES

KEF, yes  I have been a "bust" chap!  

Its been glorious here.  No gardening at all.  Well, potting on stuff into bigger pots. Getting cold now.  

Ecky thump......Ireland beat France so Emgland are runners up.  But Ireland deserved it....they wanted it so badly and played their hearts out.
