Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

Interesting diet Edd.  

Nostalgia way back to primary school Edd?  When I returned from Aussie ....9 or so....my two brothers and I had blond hair, an aussie tan and an aussie twang.  Girls liked it too as I recall........all the way to college with the accent.  You beat me by an inch 

.............carrot juice Edd?  I am teased....."orange face"....about my consumption of carrots during the summer.  folks are just jealous 

Hedge advice for sandy soil in windy spot

Posted: 05/02/2016 at 08:14

The pine needles are the real problem Kaspar.

I live near the coast on sandy...albeit good...soil too.  I think we share a similar climate and conditions 

Interesting though that you say fuschias, bay, etc. grow there despite the pine needles. That's good 

Griselinia is worth comsidering.  Sea Buckthorne suckers like mad so would not endorse it.  lonicera Baggesons Gold too is an excellent shrub with unique colour. 

Parsley

Well.....easy peasy for me.    half a dozen plants supply me all summer 

parsley needs heat to germinate quickly at this time of year....hence boiling water at sowing time. Try it folks.  Simples

THESE NEW PART TWO THREADS NORA

Nothing like Trump Zoomer or his hairstyle.   

My point is simple.....if someone took the trouble to start a thread that thread should continue with the author's name.  for example, the "worries" thread was started by KEF.     it is now credited to NORA.  to suggest it is a software issue is Incorrect.  

if you are happy with this folks then fine.

Agree lily.  good idea

Parsley

Posted: 04/02/2016 at 22:32

Parsley is deemed difficult to germinate.  

However I rarely have a problem. I sow seed in a pot, lightly cover with compost. pour boiling water into a dish and stand the pot in it.  Cover with seed packet and stand in kitchen until germination. for me this is pretty quick.  A week to 10 days.  A week or so later I move to unheated gh. Prick out later into trays.  Then into 9 cm pots.  Then out in the garden.

I think it is a tad early right now though.....prefer to wait another fortnight or so 

why successional sowing though?  I find plants provide all summer 

What/Where have all my snowdrops gone?
