Welcome nickyB

We do talk about gardening on this forum and not just cake!  Lol. But it's the most friendly forum I've been on

Tina, big emotional experience for you.  I think most of us understand.

Yep, do need that cake now.

Woody, good luck

Weathers still good here.  Expected rain last night but none.

Sarah, squash them or just leave them.  They don't do any good though.

Naughty naughty dove.  Lol

I broke the lupin flower off by accident

Posted: 14/06/2013 at 00:11

It's got a good chance of flowering again soon but, yes, cut it back cleanly to side shoot.  Look carefully though, you may find an emerging flower stem low down.  Lupins often flower like that

Feeding Rhubarb.

Posted: 14/06/2013 at 00:05


Rhubarb needs good soil, good feeding and adequate or more moisture. Rhubarb is a long lived plant and will be in that position for many will need good conditions

The better conditions you give it the better your rhubarb will be.  So, use organic fertiliser like fish blood and bone and mulch with manure or compost.

Not a great size pot for 4 beans.  Can you put 2 in another pot.  Again, beans need good soil and moisture.  Ideally, can they go in the ground?

Your right Artjak,  no wonder my clothes didn't fit right

Non flowering Geranium pratense

Posted: 13/06/2013 at 20:46

I think it may be just concentrating on growing.  You said you removed a huge conifer so your geranium prob would just have made growth in that relative shade.  This year, well, it's still early ish.  I wouldn't feed or water, don't Molly coddle it.  Bet it flowers soon
