Another couple of years to go!  Don't cut it back and keep it well-weeded.

It is very easy to look up on the web.  Sorry don't have the relevant figures to hand.

Potato Leaf Tomato

Not a debate.  They are just the same as regular leaf-shaped tomatoes as far as I know.

Identification please :)

Isn't it Star of Bethlehem? Ornithogalum.

Why do you want to get rid of them?  They certainly fit the description of mixed hedging.

You do know they are the Witch's Tree and there is a lot of folklore attached to them?

Barley straw.  If you don't know a farmer, they sell it in garden centres.

Councils now charge for getting rid of wasps.  Or recommend you 'get a firm in.'

French blue lake sowing

Posted: 01/05/2014 at 00:31

I sowed Blue Lake last week (21 April) in the greenhouse.  They started emerging yesterday.  I hope the danger of frost will have gone by the time they are ready to go out.

Failed Sweetcorn

I sow mine on wet/damp kitchen paper in a closed plastic container.  No additional heat required.  As each seed germinates - you have to check every day after the third day - pop the seed in compost in a pot or Rootrainers.

I expect to get 100 percent germination.  I use Franchi seed as it is very reliable.
