Chatting on the Plot / Re: Morning all :)

They were ebay seeds but in one of the major seed supplier packets, can't remember which one, it's been a year  ::) and yes, some seeds would be lovely. Thank you  :)

General Gardening / Re: Peony that doesn't flower
« Last post by mrs bouquet on Today at 08:31 »
yes, definitely in the wrong situation.  I have one in my south facing garden, which I moved a few years ago, it took a season to settle but now it is very happy, and I confess to doing nothing to it other than admire.
Good luck, Mrs Bouquet

All garden machinery engines are low compression so can take low octane fuel. Most have aluminium cylinder blocks and heads which have hardened valve seats, so can take unleaded fuel. The engines with cast iron valve seats, such as 1970s Sufflolks, have now been running on unleaded for almost 20 years without problems, although they aren't supposed to. So, short answer, yes.

If they free range she may have eaten something that disagreed with her.  One of mine acted in a similar fashion and made a swift recovery after some tlc.  Hope she continues to improve!

Morning all

She was absolutely fine this morning eaten some food and had water. Comb standing up bright red and talking her head off. Perhaps itís was just one of those things. Will keep her on her own for today and check on her after work

Grow Your Own / Re: What I did on the plot today 2018

Gave the weeds/grass a haircut.. Then knocked the ground into shape with my rotavator. Spent a good 6 hours sweating in the sun (have to wear a jacket and a hat as I burn easily  :( )


Thoroughly enjoyed it though..  :D

Same happened to me last year,  as Pescador says, give them a mega drenching around the crowns and then give them a really good feed. I was taught that after they go dormant in the winter, give the ground around them a good sprinkling of manure pellets and a good mulch with some well rotted compost which will give them a good boost once they start growing again.

Weeded for a bit then sowed a whole plug tray full of salad crops that will go in the new raised bed I decided I'm going to build this week.
Spent an eternity watering various neighbours' plots (2 full and 3 half plots!) as they're all on holiday at the same time. 10 minutes after leaving the site it absolutely tipped it down  :mad:

Two visits today. First was to earth up potatoes which are all growing well after slow start.
Also pulled part of big black plastic sheet back next to strawberries and started digging over.
Soil crumbly but full of couch grass and mares tail. Was so hot so home for tea and back later.
Back in evening and carried on digging and more weeding of strawberries which are almost done now. Lots of buttercup around edge.
Few bees buzzing round and one very aggressive and stung me on my cheek  :ohmy:
Noticed them going under the plastic so presume there is a nest there?
Time for home with a sore and red cheek  :lol:
