To start with i just suffered from the pain and chronic fatigue (also other minor symptoms which i can't be bothered to list), however in the last few months i've been suffering terribly mentally. I slip away into what i can only describe as a dementia-...

Re: weed? ID help

Its not Alchemilla, the plant to the left is Alchemilla. I think Davy Crockett might be on to something with the Epilobium. The new shoots of Epilobium can be picked, treated the same as asparagus and eaten, althought i would ge a definate confirmation that this is the correcxt plant before eating it.

Re: Cycling. Will I get better at it?

I fell off my bike 2 days ago when the neighbour's dog decided to run out and try to kill our dog who was happily trotting alongside me. I was just getting more confident as i hadn't ridden for 25 odd years too, and my 8 year old daughter had just taught me to pedal standing up which i had never mas...

Re: Loofah question

Don't think they'd do any damage. I'd put them somewhere sunny but sheltered from the wind. I know that Durgan grows them, he sent me some seeds this year. Might be worth messaging him.

Re: ...stop mice from eating my sweet corn??

I always sow sweetcorn in the tunnel, then cover the tray with cling film until the seeds have germinated, I do this with bean and pea seeds too, seems to stop them going missing.

Been given a greenhouse frame which we will cover in twin wall polycarb so I can move all the seedlings out of the tunnel, its impossible to walk in there at the moment. When we bought the poly tunnel my hubby said to get a bigger one but ...

Re: Vine Weevil

I just discovered vine weevil larvae in my over-wintered nursery plants. I emptied out the compost into the chicken's run for them to have a feast and burnt the plants....they were withered and had stunted growth as a result of the infestation and wouldn't have recovered. The remaining healthy plant...
