TC the problem with this is that the thread loses momentum; its now jumping around from posts which are years apart and don't have any continuity, if you have to do this can you display the posts in date order throughout, so that this now three times merged thread is formated to at least make the latest posts read with some semblance of sense and continuity to the latest contributions?

We have for example many threads on here relating to Brian Laws, but I dont see them all merged?

Despite the rain, I have been a busy boy this afternoon; raked over the veg patch and levelled it off, then using the handle of the rake as a guide, dug down a godd 6 inches and placed the Rocket seed potato in one by one, got a good two rows sown and I plan to raise the soil level of the raised border by buying some grow bags and adding those on top of the potatoes, once they show some growth(Sm14)

Below those two rows I have prepared the remainder of the bed with a good scattering of organic chicken manure pellets and they will be ready for the cabbage, carrots and whatever else I can squeeze inthumbs down

Having a rewarding cup of tea now, so good luck with your sowing and may your brassicas be the best ever(Sm72)

Hope you all managed to get some seeds sown yesterday(Sm13) I put some lettuce seeds in and noticed that my Giant Tree Lillies which were new to the garden last year have all popped back through, so that is promising; they will need tieing into the trellis in about a months time, once they get going.

No such news on my hardy fuchsias which I have had for more years than I can remember; still no sign of any growth from last years cut back wood, but I am hoping it is just because a lot of things are late this year. Fingers crossedeye rolling smiley

Gave the lawn a weed and feed on Thursday and already it seems to have started working on some of the moss; with some darker patches starting to appear; this time next week I will give it a light raking, spike it and scatter some Shady Lawn Seed with top soil and give it a good brushing.

Off to do a bit of weeding; then tune into the Clarets; get busy over Easter and may your brassicas be the best ever(Sm72)

I was given 3 HARDY fuschias last spring & planted em out....not a sign of life yet & they are againt the garage wall! I reckon this past winter was just a little TOO harsh for em.

Hope we get 2 or 3 dry days by w/end, the grass really needs cutting now, but far too wet.


Forgot to say last week CW, I got my pack from the BBC `digin` Grow your own grub off 'tinternet (cheers for the link Turfy) it contains French beans, courgette, Basil, carrot & salad seeds.

I wish I had a greenhouse, but no room at all for one, (even those little plastic lean-to types) so will probably just sew the last 3 directly outdoors or get a couple of grow-bags on the patio.

TC what did they charge you for P&P? also, no I didnt see the Flower sprout, but my old Dad used to have an old large drums on his allotments that he he used to collect water in and one which he used for liquid fertilliser and he used to toss the flowering heads of the Brussel Sprouts into the drum to make undilluted liquid fertilliser(Sm14)

The good news is that the first of my hardy fuschias is sprouts from the bas, so dont give up hope!(Sm14) I think after the winter we have had, we all need to show a little patience this spring(Sm13)

We need to get out there and sort out all those tidying up jobs that its easy to put off, ready for when the garden springs into life, so put your backs into it and may your brassicas be the best ever(Sm72)

Well, I managed to get the grass cut today, still a bit soft underfoot, but just dry enough. Only a couple of small bare patches, so raked in a bit of seed.
Loads of moss in it but only 3 or 4 dandelions, so gave them a spray.

Nice to see everyone busy(Sm13)

Finished off the mortar job to the joints on the patio yesterday, so getting to work on the front lawn today, a light raking, spiking and then work in some seed with top soil.

Interesting to hear this "tilth" talk and I am now going to quote again from the bible on it Chapter 12, page 272 "Any large lumps remaining should be broken down with the back of a fork and the whole plot lightly turned over, removing any large stones and of course, weeds. It is then firmed by treading and afterwards worked to a really fine tilth by raking. If you have a hay rake this is a splendid tool for a first raking, following this with another rake over, at right angles to the first path of progress, with an iron garden rake. This should provide the fine tilth and firm seed bed which is needed"

Amen to that and as the other bible says "ye shall reap what ye sow"(Sm13) and my Sprouts seeds which I planted last week have shot through, so I need to get those sorted into individual pots and grow them on for a while.

Good weather, time for some sowing and may your brassicas be the best ever(Sm72)

Been in the garden ALL afternoon. smoking smiley Tulips in full bloom.

Got the grass cut again (before the much needed rain tomorrow) & edged it too. Scattered lawn feed then went around & sprayed the dandelions again.....just to be sure.

Got the hedge trimmers out on the conifers & tidied em up.

Bought 3 small wall baskets & got the screws in the wall ready for planting em when the threat of frost has passed.

Plants are growing like mad now so should only be a few short weeks to full bloom & snails/slugs seem under control atm too.

Seen loads of ladybirds this last few days, hope we get a 76 type summer again! (Sm76) also loads of wasps about looking for somewhere to take up residence (Sm122) & also quite a few VERY LARGE bumble bees (the size of Squash-balls eye popping smiley) How the hell do they manage to fly? (Sm8)

I will be away on holiday in two weeks time, so I have to make my best preparations to get all my jobs done in the garden that will hopefully see it through my week away.

The lawns need a cut, but I'm still not lowering the blades and having put seed down the other week I dont want to really get too low just yet. The weed and feed seems to have done its job and I'm fairly happy with how they look for the time of year(Sm13)

The borders at the back garden need constant attention at this time of year; weeding out the sycamore seedlings is easy thay just pull out, but I have signs of bindweed that I noticed last year and thats a harder pest to deal with. Its no good trying pull this lot out; you need to use your fork and trowel and get them dug out; and you need to try and get the spreading root out too! If you dont do it now, before the bedding plants go in or the existing plants start to spread then you will have a border full of the weed and you wont be able to get at it, without damaging the growing plants!

My potatoes in bags in the greenhouse(first early Rocket) are now growing away well above the top of the compost bags I planted them in and I expect they will be flowering in a couple of weeks time; so I can look forward to some new potatoes for tea when I get back from my holiday.

The potatoes I planted in my vegetable patch are also well through and I am using more of last years grow material to mound up these as they continue to make rapid growth. For both the potatoes in bags and those in the ground, it is important to keep them well fed and watered, as now they are really established it will improve the size of the crop.

Sprouts are doing well in there individual pots and should be ready for planting out in 3 weeks time.

Also got my tomatoes in small pots now(Moneymaker) and I may try to get those in growbags in the greenhouse before I go away.

Happy to report that after a very slow start my fuchsias are coming along nicely and despite the very bad winter, its looks like they have all survived!(Sm13)

Going to be relying on my daughter and her boyfriend to keep the gardens and greenhouse watered while I am away but they have done a good job in the past so it should be OK

So get out there and spend a few hours now that will save you a lot of pain later in the summer and may your brassicas be the best ever(Sm72)

Of the 3 hardy fuschias I planted last year, 2 are showing new shoots! so not too bad considering the winter we've had.

The little apple tree I planted nearly 2 years ago is ready to burst into bloom, I just hope the frost doesn't get to the blossom again. 1st year I got 20+ apples. Last year....1 (Sm17)

CW, re the bindweed, someone told me to put a few canes in the ground next to it & let them grow up the cane, then they're easy to spray with `Roundup` (or similar systemic herbicide)

TC the bindweed is a real pest(Sm56) and as you know the problem is that it grows at an alarming rate and one minute it looks clear and the next your covered with the stuff.

Mine grows up the trellis where my fuchsias are and it becomes really difficult to get to the base to get the roots out, so I may try that method.

The other problem with this weed is that you can never really get all the root out and bits of it soon reappear in areas you think you've weeded!

Anyway keep up the good work folk and may your brassicas be the best ever(Sm72)

Are there any more hardy chilli plants that you can grow outdoors without them having to be under glass or brought in for the winter or whatever?

aggi I think you will really struggle to keep them outdoors during the winter, I have grown them in the greenhouse and they love as much heat as you can give them.

When I tried to keep them longer into November(without greenhouse heat) the formed peppers started to deteriorate and became very soft and eventually pulpy, so I have taken them out at the same time that I take out my Tomatoes. I would have thought trying to keep them outdoors in the North of England would be very difficult.

You CAN overwinter chilli plants....just not outdoors!
You just need to bring em indoors end of Sept/early Oct before the frost.

Re-pot em, prune em back to about 6" & keep em on a window sill & water VERY spraringly over the winter (keep em almost dry)

When Sring arrives they'll soon start growing again & you'll actually have an advantage over growing again from seed, as the plant/roots are already there.

Some varieties of chillies actually crop better as they mature.

Back from a week in the sun in Majorca and my daughter had the task of keeping my garden and greenhouse watered. On the whole she has done a pretty good job; although my tomato plants have perished, probably because of the sun, rather than lack of watering, so I will have to get down to B&Q and get some more.

Speaking of buying plants, I was down at Aldi this morning and bought 3 trays of geraniums, each with 4 per tray. I got two red and one rose colours, the plants look strog and healthy and at £2.49 per tray was good value(Sm13) I shall plant them into bigger individual pots and grow them on for a few more weeks before planting them out.

The first early potatoes are just about to start flowering, so it may be a few weeks before I get my pure white new potatoes, but they will be worth waiting for(Sm15)

My pink azalea has been stunning for over a month now and it is just starting to go over, I have layered one of the branches into a pot and should get a "free" plant come the autumn. I also have a scarlet coloured one which has been late this year but is now coming into full bloom.

My hostas are fully out and have flowering stems coming from them and more importantly no snails!(Sm13)

Well these geraniums wont pot themselves so I better get on with it; good gardening and may your brassicas be the best ever(Sm72)

Breaking news....my giant tree lilies which are now well...giant sized, are being attacked by red beetles which will eat the leaves, flowers, everything! Need to get down to B&Q this morning and get hold of some imipacloprid spray to fight back.

Got me wondering, if the snails had still been around, would they have seen these red beetles off?

Check your plants; the first days of warm weather we have really had this Spring, so check out for pests and treat them straight away, before they take hold.

So good luck with clearing out those pests and may your brassicas be the best ever(Sm72)

Looks like being a bit cooler and possibility of some rain clouds by me this morning. For the gardens and vegetable patches thats a relief, as the last two days have been scorchers and getting your plants and crops to survive the intense sun isn't easy.

I watered with my hosepipe first thing in the morning and last thing at night over the two days and gave everything(including the lawns) a good soaking. With cooler prospects today I may give the plants and crops a feed to aid them after all that heat

The lawns should be OK, as the spring weed and feed should have strengthened the roots and I will give them my monthly liquid feed at the beginning of next month; something I will do each month up to September and then apply an autumn weed and feed early October.

Kept my lettuce well watered in the green house and they have shot up and had some in a ham salad yesterday(Sm15)

Have to say that my baskets and containers and borders that still have my Winter flowering pansies in haven't faired as well and signifies to me that its time for them to come out and be replaced with summer bedding plants.

Touch wood the spray I got and used on the red leaf beetles on my giant tree lilies seems to be working and I haven't seen any for two days now(Sm13)

So keep watering and and may your brassicas be the best ever(Sm72)

Not a bit of damage on my Hostas either, I think the dry weather has kept the snails numbers down.....so far, but also seen loads of broken snail shells where the thrushes have managed to find em.

Done a bit more weeding today & planted a couple of trays each of Lobelia, Dianthus & Verbena, down the edge of the drive.
Also scattered a packet of night scented stock, in between existing plants. They're one of my favourite scented flowers (although nowt to look at)

Had plenty of blossom on my little apple tree, so hopefully i'll get a couple of dozen apples this year in Sept.

I'm growing some spuds for the first time this year, they are progressing quite well with plenty of green, also planted some carrotts and red onions which are showing no signs of life however, any tips for a complete novice?
