I might try this method later. i don't want a sea of sticks in my dahlia bed. I don't even use canes to support the plants.


Is everyone watering? ( just to change the subject)

Does anyone know what the current viewing figures are and what the trends have been? These might inform our discussion.

Thanks Verd. I think I will pull it for now so as not to risk Glysophate on my dahlias. I will try weedkiller later when the regrowth is taking stuff down to the roots.

I would take them out of the plastic and find a sunny spot. Don't forget your watering. If they are in pots place the pot in a tray which will help with water and atmosphere. As said above individual pots when big enough to handle. Pick up by the seed leaves not the stem.

Eat them small for flavour, and they will grow more fruits.

Bindweed is one of my next jobs but have just read on another thread that pulling it encourages it to spread underground. Is that true?

I now stay at home for most of the summer, so as to work on the garden and enjoy it. Treats and visits come install bursts. Then I hibernate all winter!!!!

I was only thinking this evening that I wished I had hit mine a bit harder, to prepare it for next year. May still do so. But mine is much older than yours.

I think your post was meant to be a wake-up call for me.

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.
