Morning chatterboxes 


back from the beach.


misty, quiet, warm, confused smells of the sea, of gorse, of wild thyme and grass.  Birds singing on the air and in the bushes.   Always a few out there with their dogs.  The lighthouse and the sea complete a perfect scene 


plan to sow peas, beans, more lettuce.  night phlox and more cosmos too.  Time to uncover plants under temporary polytunnel........I think any really cold weather is unlikely now. 


Have a good day folks 

Pinch out how many times?

Craigh


there is no hard and fast rule but every pinching delays flowering......plus and minus perhaps.  Plants will not suffer.  Plants will be sturdier 


best by personal experience. Why not compare pinched v unpinched?  See for yourself. It is what I have done and I have no doubt of the advantages of pinching.  ...all plants will grow without pinching but it is about growing them to the best quality
