Dandelion flower and clock time-lapse

April 30, 2009

The Dandelion is considered a garden weed yet I think they are rather beautiful, especially  when you see the flowers and seed head opening in time-lapse.

I have made an on-line interactive plant finder, identifier and pruning guide web site.  http://www.rightplants4me.co.uk which I hope you find interesting.

It has over 4,000 garden plants, 11,000 photographs plus time lapse sequences and each plant has in-depth plant care and illustrated pruning advice.

The plant database is continuing to grow.  If you have good quality photographs of garden plants that are not not already on the database I’d like to hear from you with an interest of adding it to the collection.

Pea seedling time lapse

April 20, 2009

I start my peas by putting them in a damp container. When I see the root starting to grow I know  which peas are viable and discard those which aren’t.

I plant the peas about 2.5cm (1 inch deep) in moist compost. Cover the pot to stop mice digging them up and eating them.

This time-lapse of pea seedlings shows what happens over a period of about 10 days.

When large enough to plant out,  you should put supports in for your peas to climb up.
