Chatting on the Plot / Re: hip operation done

Great news, glad you are home.  I have had 2 new hips, and the only advice I can offer is to religiously do the exercises.   Sometimes, you will feel very tired and sore, but don't give in.  Long term you will be rewarded.
I am so pleased for you - take care, regards  Mrs Bouquet

General Gardening / Plants on go-slow
« Last post by mrs bouquet on Today at 10:53 »
All is now safely in the ground and pots (almost),  and have been for a couple of weeks.   But the weather has been fairly kind, some sunshine and rain, warmish during the day, a bit chilly at night.  So what have I done wrong - nothing has grown at all and I don't remember this being so in previous years.
Is anybody else experiencing the same thing ?  or as I get older am I getting impatient  :lol:  Regards Mrs Bouquet

They will be fine, a bit like leeks chop the tops off and they regrow. :)

Hi, I haven't been on the forum for ages - so sorry about that.
I'm back because I think a rabbit is cropping the green shoots on my onions. My question is: will the bulbs continue to grow, or have they had it?

p.s. I put chicken wire around the other raised beds at the start of the season to keep the rabbits at bay, but I thought the onions would be safe - and they have been until very recently!

Might be an idea to water from underneath (bit hard to judge precisely - I pour about an inch of water into the container the pots are standing in, and if there is any left after an hour I pour it away. Much easier with paper pots because you can see how far up the moisture has travelled from the outside.  ;))

No point in all that angst for those of us that don't spray. Possibly a useful warning to farmers. . My anti blight measures are to plant potatoes as soon as humanly possible, as early frost and cold soil  is easier to mitigate against than blight. Already tucking into my under cover earlies, flower buds just showing on the outside ones.
Most tomatoes are grown in the greenhouse, and the outside sauce crop is crimson crush that, short of armageddon, will produce a crop of some sort through the blight.
Wish I had as effective an organic answer to flea beetle.  :)
