My sweetcorn has tastles already but they're short.

They may be a short variety. It will tell you the height on the packet or did you buy the plants?

When they flower remember to shake the plants gently so the pollen falls on the tassels.

Cabbages and Sweetcorn Help?

Posted: 04/07/2015 at 00:13
Decide how many cabbages you will realistically eat and thin out the seedlings to give approximately that number.

You are better off growing fewer better plants. Choose one seedling from each clump and pinch off or pull out the rest.

When each plant has some true leaves (they only have seed leaves at the moment) you can plant them at the correct spacing, in the garden.

does anyone know what I've done with my secateurs?

Tie a long coloured string/rope to them. They will still hide but it evens up your chances.

Be of good cheer! Accept that there are just some vegetables that grow better commercially than you can grow yourself. Celeriac is one of them.

Old building; they were here before us. Ditto the bats.

You may not like the suggestion, but have you considered getting rid of the beds to make mowing the lawn easier?

Usual advice is to cut out one third of the flowered branches each year.

Sorry Joe your link doesn't work.

The swifts have been particularly noisy round the house the last three days. I wondered if the eggs had hatched. They mobbed me when I stood in the Velux window to watch them. Close enough to hear and feel them fly past

please help

Are you muddling home-made compost with shop-bought compost? They are not the same. It must have cost a fortune to lay down 1 foot of shop-bought compost.

Shop-bought compost contains very little fertilizer, not that such small sunflowers need fertilizer yet.

The main thing with sunflowers is to protect them from slugs.
