My flooded potato trench had dried out but this morning both it and the bean patch were flooded again. The spuds in the first two trenches are shooting up, I raked a bit of soil round the stems to start the earthing up. The ones in the last trench are showing, even one in the wettest end - hope it s...
I was wondering if the repair cafe would take some of the bits & pieces in my garage - Jim did a lot of repairs and there's all sorts there.

Jim was a great one for propagating from cuttings and layers. The garden is full of lots of the same things. Plus a lot that have ...
I can't imagine anything would kill a bramble Maybe harden them off in the daytime first. What I tend to do is split the risk - plant one out leave one in (leave half the washing on the line on a cloudy day). Then I'm bound to be wrong half the time - too early or too late.
