I've used them after being recommended.

Can't remember what I bought, possibly tom seeds. I liked them because they explain how to save seeds and use the on line site as a source of information.

It's quite easy to save bean, pea's, chillies, peppers, aubergines, toms, cues and courgette seeds if you follow their guide. They provide info on saving other seeds but those are the one's I've tried.

Sometimes you can pick up a bargin and it sounds like yours would have been but for the crossed thread. You take your chances, but nothing lost apart from a trip back to the shop for a refund although annoying when the item wasn't fit for purpose.

Sweetcorn

Thanks Bob, we live and learn 

Hi, John, you aren't doing anything wrong,  your sweet corn is way ahead of mine. I tried a mini pop variety this year on account it would mature earlier... I don't think so, it's about 3ft-4ft high with no sign of flowers yet.

Hi, Nan,

Did you get a good spud crop. I've not dug up my first and second earlies yet, just got back from a two week jolly and will be digging up spuds tomorrow, it'll be like digging for gold   

Lidl fruit tree's....

Posted: 01/07/2014 at 22:42

I received a response from Lidl last week, The apple tree's were on root stock M9 and the pear tree's rootstock was Quitte Adams or Quitte C. I suspect the tree's have been sold by now though.

I've always had good results from seeds and plants from Lidl, so, e-mailed them back words to that effect saying it would be helpful if the root stock was on the label as some growers may be limited as to what size tree's they can grow.

Got a nice e-mail back thanking me for being patient whilst they looked into the initial enquiry and saying they will contact me again once they receive a response from the department my labeling enquiry was sent too.

I start most veg off in modules, will plant half out this week and hope my regular hoilday watering doesn't forget to water them next week

It is a waste to pick them now they aren't much more than salad leaves and the aim was to grow the proper thing with a good heart in the middle before picking.

Dove - apart from sulg pellets for protection is it just a case of watering regularly. What I might do is grow half in pots and plant half out.
