gardeners world

from Lynn Franklin

It starts tonight Fi, the first one to come from the new plot in Birmingham, really looking forward to it, seems like there's going to be a lot of interesting topics

lesson learned

from Lynn Franklin

I think there are a lot of us that have had that happen in the past, I learnt the hard way and lost all my seeds a couple of years ago.

I don't think you can beat your own compost, it's satisfying knowing you 'grow your own' I will have to look out for the NH products and give them a go.
Well done for picking a peat free one, I checked my bags and they have Irish peat in :( although they are organic

I think they would look perfect, I'm very happy with the way they are flowering, I have had Thalia in the past, but I think these are definately better. Chinita is a very nice one which I would look out for, at the moment being such a new garden I don't have protection from strong winds, so I think they might get battered, that's why I've gone for the shorter ones this year. Hopefully once my shrubs start to protect the garden I can then think of the taller varieties

peat free

from Lynn Franklin

have you ever tried any of the peat free composts that are available?
Some of them haven't had very good growing results, I'd be interested to read the results from 'Which' to see what ones they recommend.
I finally had enough of my own compost to put on some of the garden, this ground hadn't been fed with anything for (according to the neighbour) about 30 years, so I really have my work cut out for me

that's a nice one, is it very tall?
this is another new one Niveth, slightly more delicate and shorter than Thalia

Having just watched the programme on the use of peat in the garden has really got me to thinking about what I use. It's going to be a challenge but I think after seeing Toby's remarks I'm going to have a go. Anyone else been moved to make changes?
