Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 01/04/2015 at 08:23

Mine have survived the weather David.  I have to say that I took David's recommendation and went for Eagle Sweet Peas even though they were more expensive.  I had 100% germination and also got to choose the exact colours I wanted.  I have loads left for next year.

Or Mr C Lyon Bekkie. 

Wind has died down here too.  Will try and get out and sort out next doors fence panel.  Gertrude Jekyl is attached to is so I hope she is OK

Every joint aches today so not sure what I will be able to get up to.  Hubby has finished the bathroom so a bit of tidying up necessary (a bit - joke house looks like a bomb has hit it).

Hope Lyn is OK today.

Same here Bekkie.  My house belonged to a very old lady.  It was then occupied by a younger couple who pretty much left it to it's own devices. When I moved in I found (and am still finding) tiny holly trees, two baby boxes (which I have now shaped and potted - they are 4ft tall) and loads of other seedlings.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Well, just one fence panel down so feel we got off quite lightly, unless there is more to come.

Feeling really fed up today and no idea why. Have been looking at plant porn today and ordered a couple of  things from Crocus in the sale,  Dahlia Jescot Julie and some Tuberosa.

First year of growing hostas.  I ordered the free ones from the mag (T&M) they were Wide Brim, Francee Sieboldiana elegans, Pizzaz, Halcyon and Snow Cap.

I have planted some in pots with copper tape and some in the ground so I'll just have to see how they go re slugs.

Hope I don't become addicted as I don't have a very large garden.

Morning all,

Sorry to hear about your mum Liri, hope she is OK. 

Clari, I think Dove was right about Bollards.

Sorry to all those who have experienced damage due to the awful winds.  I haven't checked my garden yet but it's still blowing a gale here.  Quite sunny though but the forecast says rain so I'll pop out there in a minute to check the greenhouse etc.

No real plans for today feeling a bit yuk but not sure why.
