Re: Weather forecast

I dare say that none of the weather forecasts will suit as there's snow in the south east of the UK.

Re: Wheelbarrow tyre containers

I have some car tyres with flowers in but wouldn't use them for food growing. I also think as does Green Aura that wheelbarrow tyres are too small to be really useful as they won't be deep enough for root growth or wide enough for plants to spread.

Re: Snowman pumpkin

If you click this link, scroll down and click on the growing advice tab you'll find everything I know about these pumpkins. And March is much too early to sow, end of April soon enough. Indoors or greenhouse to start.

Re: Mulch suitability

It'll be acid so I'd use round things that like ericaceous compost (blueberries, Azaleas, rhododendrons and such) or use on your paths. I'd say it would cause damage where you are thinking of using it as those aren't things that do well with acid soil.

Re: Snowman pumpkin

I've done them and the family liked them. They were easy enough to look after as well.

Re: Weather forecast

I've found the UK met office to be as good as any but we do have a reporting station just up the road. Mind there are days when they change their minds by the hour. I keep an eye on their radar rain chart and their surface pressure charts. It may be 50 years since the fleet air arm trained me as a w...

Something happened?

I dropped in yesterday to a whole new look but failed to be able to post. I know the board was down for a bit (something to do with the ish monkeys knitting the internet it said) then it came back, not a lot worked and now it's all changed again. Is there fun in the back ground? Were we hacked? Did ...

Re: Bread flour question

What you've proved is that not all equivalent items are equal and that buying cheap doesn't always pay.

Which doesn't answer your question - you need people who have succeeded with Aldi bread flour.

Re: HELP have i still time to prune fruit trees and rasps

Hi gunners No need to panic - cherry and plum trees should be pruned early to mid summer along with other stone fruit trees so that job doesn't need to be done now. Sweet peas you can do now up to April so there's an easy task to do. I'm about to do mine now. Mind it's sleeting so no hurry here eith...
