National Collections

Posted: 10/09/2013 at 15:26

Don't want to discourage Ryan, but there already seems to be a National Collection of echinaceas.  Why do you not visit it and pick the brains of the man that has it?

Shortest day is traditional, I believe.  Haven't they been good this year?  Or is that onion seed?

I shall be buying my garlic bulbs, onion sets and shallots this week.  I know I can use my own garlic and shallots, but they were newly bought last Autumn and so successful (especially the garlic) it seems a shame to buck the trend.

Has it got a mate?  Does it need a mate?

Jimmy, I'm sorry but most people don't see the connection between the proliferation of badgers and the demise of hedgehogs, ground-nesting birds, bees and anything else Mr Brock can get his teeth into.

Diddydoit, you can rest assured you won't get TB unless the badgers pee on your produce and you then eat it raw.

T&M get you both ways.  Expensive packets and very few seeds in them!

It's the sign 'Adult Cereals' in our local Tesco that gets me.  What does it mean??

Have to disagree about T&M.  Their catalogue is garish.  The seeds are over-priced.  The germination rates are awful. Mainly vegetable seeds which should be governed by legislation.

True, I know nothing about their plants, I won't even buy their discounted packets of seeds, I have been caught too often by their hype.

If it was on an allotment the management committee should be informed.

Trouble is weedkiller takes some time to make its presence known.  Maybe this happened some time ago.

Funny the OP hasn't come back with more information.

Iron Man

Alan I would save your money and buy blackcurrant bushes.  Far, far more productive, easier, better tasting and just as health-giving. You don't have to worry about providing acid soil and the pruning is easier.

There are 90 Pembrokeshire contestants in Iron Man this year.
