HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 24/04/2015 at 17:36

I grow all my hosts in pots. They are in groups on my terrace in shade for most of the day. Different shapes and heights. very attractive, and not much of a problem from slugs now. Watering easy too, and feeding.

`Good luck with Shadow, DD.

Must sort my plants for the plant sale tomorrow, won't comment on the weather in case I put the mockers on it. Also repot my dahlias which I grow in pots. 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Planted some violas by the front door, and some blue perennial cornflowers.

Fell asleep in garden and woke up at 5-30. rushed indoors to find it was only 4-30 !!

Northerly winds may have delayed them perhaps. More food available now.

Don't know this one, but the general rule is that those with thin strappy leaves are the hardiest. e.g. Garnett. Thick leaves are often tender types.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
