Don't shoot me JIMMY.  I'm reeeeeeeelly sorry 

Victoria, not just taller but shaggier flowers and more vigorous spreader by the sound of it.  Wild Swan is great for me....JIMMY prob Ruffled is tempting me

I grow Anemone Wild Swan ....a beauty flowering all summer.  Love it 

anyone growing Ruffled Swan or Dreaming Swan?  

Whilst picking your brains, anyone growing perovskia Lacey Blue? The well known variety is a little too vigorous here so an opinion on this newer variety appreciated folks

I bought maidens to train as espaliers......takes slightly longer but makes a far better shape .  Cheaper too.  

Unnos, espaliers only for spur bearing apples and pears.

Wot you after now Edd?   

I took out a free trial for gardeners world mag.......not had it regularly for a couple of years.

to the publishers as well as to the members here, I felt it had very little to offer.

sorry Caroline, neither  an antidote to depression nor an inspiration.

 Think I will publish my own magazine......Verdun's World. 


The best onions from seed.....

Posted: 18/01/2016 at 16:22

Afternoon Edd

Would never use sets for The Kelsae

seed is always better than sets but sets are more convenient 

ooooooo, that is an early sowing ...Dec 2.......

always regarded onions as following day length, so sowing after Dec  21/23 but as soon as possible thereafter for max size.  for me, slight heat for germination and then grown cold.  Bear in mind, generally, temps are never too low for long here but resulting onions always excellent both in size and quality.  

However, we all garden differently.  (My way is best .....of course 

Fleece or Bubbloewrap

Fleece for me everhopeful.

if its in a glass green house fleece will be ideal and sufficient in my opinion.  Bubble wrap is not a good protection Treehugger it tends to hold moisture.
