Just spotted the first 'Soldiers and Sailors' today...

And I've pruned the wistaria which has taken five hours, and up a ladder too, so please be gentle with me!

The general rule n thumb is as long as the plant in its natural enviroment recieves light. So I grow my chillies under them at the start of the year, most countries they are native to will average 12 hours of daylight so mine get 12 hours per day.
Of course this very much dependant on the power of the lights, I use a 300watt unit on my grow tent

I buy plugs for all summer bedding plants and grow them on in the polytunnel. There are some incredible bargains on line for petunias, geraniums and begonias etc. From memory, last year I was paying not much more than a tenner for 170 plants of each type.
Chatting on the Plot / a red hen and a pup
« Last post by rowlandwells on Today at 19:49 »
 sounds like a fairy tale but its something we seen yesterday that brought tears of laughter to my eyes a friend of ours has just had a little Jack Russell puppy given her about twelve weeks old

as we stood talking the pup challenged a red hen that was not happy at that and chased the pup trying to peck him the more the pup went to the hen the more the hen run the pup it was just so funny to watch

in the end the pup went behind the women's  legs to hide from the hen then the hen seen the pup and it all started of again only when the women put the pup inside the truck did the hen stroll away quite casual I bet the hen  said to itself there's another day   :D :D :D
General Gardening / seeds or plugs
« Last post by rowlandwells on Today at 19:25 »
as we come nearer to spring for those who have a greenhouse or poly tunnel do you grow your summer flowers from seed or buy plug plant or all  your plants from the garden centres

 we grow seed that are petty easy to raze in the greenhouse but seed that is a bit more intensive we buy in as plugs or cutting razed we found buying like that eliminates all the hassle waste and heating bill

the things we buy from razed cutting or plugs are fuchsia calibrachoa petunia begonia and impatiens its nice to raze seed to flowering but its just to expensive to heat our greenhouse and the supplementary lighting required these days

when i see people comming out of the garden centres with trollies full of bedding i think what that's cost i know its an instant garden of colour and may be those havent got a greenhouse or poly tunnel so i supose we should think ourselves lucky we can grow our own  :)
