What a weird mild Winter

Posted: 17/01/2014 at 18:34

Please don't be encouraged to sow seeds too early, because of current mild spell. You will probably get lots of failures, and if they do do well it may not be possible to plant them out and they will be weak and straggly. Keep to your normal timings.

Whats your plans for next year.

Go for leaf interest,rather than gaudy flowers. lamiums, heucheras, dicentra??

Whats your plans for next year.

Ferns, fritillaries, pulmonarias, all look great at foot of trees, shrubs. Erythroniums too.

snowdrops in spring?

Whats your plans for next year.

Good luck THG. You will love it, but don't be too upset if you get a few failures. No season or year is perfect for everything and the conditions which help one plant may be the very things that hinder another.

Only by having a go will you learn what's best for you. We've all been there. My T-Shirt is full of holes already.

Jess, buy some snowdrops " in the green" over the next 4 to 6 weeks and plant them. Keep moist during first year and you will be OK.... bulbs are often problematic .

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.
