Re: Top 50 posters

I joined Mon Oct 16, 2006 6:46 pm
I posted quite a lot soon after, looking for information.
I don't post very often now as I don't use the site as a "friends get-together".

Incidentally I know we're all being encouraged to try and give up plastic but I noticed yiur strawberries in punnets and couldn,t help thinking how useful these containers are to we gardeners. I keep a stock of them and find them so useful for sowing and growing small quantities of different seedli...

Re: Sign of the Times.

They have Pharmacists. I'm sure I read recently that "the authorities" were encouraging people to use these rather than clog-up Doctors' waiting rooms.

It does say profound instead of deep. Quite why, I don't know.

Courgette Tarmino

Sutton Seeds are advertising this variety as good for freezing.
I've never been able to freeze courgettes (without cooking).
Has anyone tried these?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Solstice, the best time to harvest most garlic.

Ron, I would harvest one or two and see what they look like. Planted Oct should be ready around now. You could do as I suggested earlier, harvest and allow to dry somewhere cool and shaded Having taken a closer look at the 'Topinky' variety that I have just harvested I notice that quite a few of th...

They were planted in October, should I harvest now or wait for the other leaves to go brown?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Full blown Spring Bits and Bobs. - 2017

Was busy hoeing the veg patch when I spotted some one inch high "weeds" which I didn't recognise. Then I remembered I had let a dill plant go to seed last autumn and realised it has provided me with some nice little freebie seedlings. They're in totally the wrong place for this year's pla...
