Re: Mini cucumbers.

Hi,

My favorite is Zeina from Thomson and Morgan.

The seeds are expensive, but I try to get them when they have their sale so they are cheaper. :mrgreen:

Re: FRENCH DWARF BEANS

I have grown some in guttering this year for the first time, I do this with my peas and have always had great sucess. I am just waiting a bit longer before I slide the beans out of the guttering and into the prepared trench.

This way you can check on germination,

Hope this helps

Wheelbarrow water carriers

Hi All,

has anybody tried one of the wheelbarrow water carriers yet?, some are sold under the name H2go.

We have no water on our allotment and I was wondering if I filled it up in my boot if it would leak before I got to my plot, driving sensibly of course.

Thanks for your help

leek pips

Hi All,

I am growing some leeks from pips. Will these leeks be bigger and better than last year, or will they be just the same as leeks grown from seeds?, is there any advantage from growing from pips??.

Thanks for your help,

regards

Re: A 'different' plant to try this year.

I am having a go at Kaibroc. This is a kind of broccoli cross which is ready quickly from planting, and produces many secondary shoots from the sides which are said to be sweet and plenyfull.

Has anybody else tried to grow this :?:

Re: Lidl garden stuff

Hi All,

I dashed down first thing this morning and got some compost maker x2 and grass seed, bird nuts, secateurs ( not worried if they only last a season), and lilly bulbs.

The assistant said she thought they would sell out quickly because they had been very busy with the gardening stuff.

Re: green manure in polly

Hi All, thanks for your replys. ugh does not seem such a good idea, from the replys so far. I havee never tried any green manure inside or outside. I have always been worried about the grow back of the green manure in the beds and some of them are a bit problematic with planting etc. Regards Tracie
