Your Musas are looking great, Dick. Have you been feeding them?

Dick Dick 04 May 2017 22:23:35

For some time I just gave them water but this week I fed them with tomato food. So will I get bananas or tomatoes from them? Every night except one this week the heat was on. While it was warm during the day it was chilly at night. They are not hardy.

Looking good Dick . Nice to have something a little different .

The magnolia did very well for you this year, Dick. I left out the plants that I have been hardening off last night. It was very windy yesterday and Paddy was saying that there is a wind warning for Wexford today.

Mary, I still have been putting in the plants. Being further inland, I feel the temperature would be lower here.
