Fishy, I guess many of us take more and more from our lawns but I would not be without my lawn. Mmy area...areas...of green to relax in, admire, sit in and play on. That unique smell from a newly cut lawn! Would not be without that.
Soaker for runner beans and veg.....very effective
I find too that regular removal of spent flowers and stems helps make for sturdier plants
Yes Aliesh, I grow rigida. Leaves are quite sparse and not at all like yours.
mine are about to,open flowers
Not forgotten Runny. Beans are 3/4 up now. Not a lot to see mind...carrots, spring onions, beetroot, rads, lettuce, peas and blueberries in that patch.
Ah! You got me there jo. in my experience most geums need moisture but if tall guys like totally tangerine are well watered they will be more lax. I grow TT in dry and rich soils here but the sturdier ones are in drier soils. For me,,it's all about experienting with plants.
Love that colour Davids......
Got to agree about hardening your plants off Lynne. It's not just about tempersture but getting used to outside conditions generally....the wind for example. Takes just a couple of days or so ar this time of year . Stems and leaves will be soft and lush inside and easily broken or bruised outside
Keep it on dry side with very little feed. If it is totally tamgerine it will stand more sturdy if hard grown I find
Had another look and I think now it is jap knotweed hefty. I would still dig it out.....dig deep and remove as big a clump of soil as possible.
