    Good to see you back Teen, I feel as I’m just about on top of things, lots growing and I shall be planting out next weekend as we are away for a few days this week. Like you I could do with some rain, garden is looking very dry.

  • Shopping all done, I was very restrained considering its payday!!! Just some bubbles and a 99p football for grandson Max, he has a habit of leaving them in his garden overnight and the foxes pop them!! I did get a bit size seaweed extract to feed the pots tomatoes etc. :good:
    Hala all, I’m going for a siesta as I feel as though I spent more time…[Read more]

    • Seaweed is that the maxicrop type stuff. I found the maxicrop growth stimulant good. I had moss in the lawn last year and could no longer rake so I watered their moss killer on and just left it, It did the trick with lots of moss gone.I had read an article about something much dearer you watered in and left so gave it a try,

    I have a 2litre jug next to the kitchen tap, for the same thing, then a 6L watering can by the back door, it gets filled every couple of days, I use my dish rinsing water too on my big established pots. :good:

    One of my fave has wilted a bit, I gave it a good drink, so hoping it will survive as it’s got a flower on it, the first one in 4 yrs :-(

    • I had clematis that I moved must be about 6 years now and it vanished, I thought it had died and then last year it grew one stem and flowered It was the only one I ever had of that variety,

      • Are your dying clematis the midsummer large flowered varieties? They are susceptible to clematis wilt but if they are planted deep enough they should regrow. I tend to buy viticella or texensis as they are much more robust. Clems do need a lot of water though.

        • They were viticella the one that came back after years was a texensis.

          • I have a Perle d’ Azur root almost under a large shrub and that is going mad I think they take a few years to get really established Perhaps last years drought started the problem and then this dry spell finished them off always learning?

          • Probably a lack of water then Tubs. I have started using my washing up water on shrubs and climbers to save the butt water for the pots.

    Morning Cilla, awake for a couple of hours during the night, so struggled to get up, it gets worse as the week wears on!!!!
    Another lovely sunny day in store, mainly gardening planned, just need to iron the bedding first.
    Did your lupin seeds grow Cilla, the purple one is about to flower, but is quiet small as I thinned it out and cut it back :confused:

    • Hi Lynn. One seed germinated and is planted and has a flower bud but with lupin aphid on my yellow one I am having to rub them off everyday. I still have some seeds so I shall try again.

    Hi Jane, I wouldn’t normally chose this week to go away, as it’s peak growing, planting, tending time of year, but as I’ve got a gardening friend to water, I can just about cope, it’s the first thing I do when we get home, before the putting a wash on, having a cuppa, is check the greenhouse, garden etc. It would be easier if grandson came to…[Read more]
