Evening forkers me first on - looking up the anemone made me think about getting one
Been seed sowing and moving plants as well as stuff sorting out inside as a bit wet and dry sometimes
Where are you all?
Ok where is everyone tonight?
Been to my first garden club meeting, the one that didn't take place when I went last time! Bit of a disaster. Plants for sale , spotted a geum asked what colour - oh ive no idea love the lady has a business selling them. Overheard someone ask what an unlabelled plant was - oh its a shrub, it has flowers. Beam me up Scottie! Its a coreopsis ( well probably not but it looked like it to me). Lovely ladies n gents though. and cake. going again? doubt it.
Hello Mrs Garden

Had my first courgette for dinner fried in butter really nice and some spuds from garden and cucumber for lunch nice
Hello folks - Dog-tired-Dove here work does that to me
Where are you all? Oh, by the way, we've had heavy rain all evening, so at last the butts ae filling up
Evening Dove, rain watering garden as well
How many days now Dove?
I envy your rain, we had about 5 minutes of it.
Think it's around 35 Managed to claim my State pension today by phoning and talking to a nice Yorkshireman called Steve, rather than getting chucked out of the Government Gateway thingy again.
Got T&M catalogue today lots of seeds nice makes me want more, it is just the case of getting round to sowing them all
Been lovely day today. Plenty of sunshine.
Mrsgarden. I went to one of those garden clubs for a couple of weeks. Drove me up the wall.......nobody knew anything, talk was of the next outing and tea and cakes seemed to be most,important thing. More of a social club.....boooooooooring! Had more fun sitting on the loo
Evening all! Have been out for a belated birthday meal with some friends tonight They bought me a wee solar owl for the garden and a box for seeds Will have to go collecting now to start to fill it!
Sorry that your gardening club didn't come to much Mrs G . . . at least there was cake
Hello Verdun and 4thPanda
Evening all, 4thPanda you will have to go on seed share thread fill that seed box up
Verdun - not so interesting then gardening clubs
Hi Gardengirl. I'd promised myself a year without lots of seedlings next year. It's not going well so far. I've seeds already sown, a box labelled sow in january and one labelled sow in spring.
Have you tried Plant World seeds? http://www.plant-world-seeds.com/
I've had some interesting seeds from them.
And Derry Watkins http://www.specialplants.net/shop/seeds/
35 days Dove, you're nearly there.
Nutcutlet too many nice seeds on both those sites just been looking, think it would be nice to get seeds at min - that I can just chuck on the ground/garden then just pop up in spring and easy as that and without slugs eating them and not so many trays in the plastic greenhouse
Not so many trays and pots, good idea. I grow a lot of perennials, most of which are too small to plant out early and the soil is too hard to plant them out later on. So I'm watering pots of this and that right through til now. I haven't counted them but there must be several hundred.
Then there are the plants I acquire through thesummer. yesterday I went to West Acre gardens/nursery. I got a Bubbleia lindleyana, Persicaria 'Inverleith', a hardy geranium I liked the look of and a Cotinus 'Grace'. I think that was all no, Rudbeckia triloba, which I've lost before.
Hi gardengirl I have no seeds to share yet, maybe next year! And here's hoping that next year my planted seeds actually germinate! Planted loads last year and only 3 took and then they weren't what I thought they were going to be! By contrast, I bought a £1 box of "shake and seed" from Poundland and they grew a treat! Just goes to show!
Evening all - rained all day today - garden needed it, but I got fed up with it after a couple of hours.
Love my garden club - some massively knowledgeable people there, and really interesting lectures once a month. One this weds about the gardens of northern France. I tend to get there just in time for the talk, and leave straight after - don't really go for the social (or cake) but it is great listening to passionate people talk about gardening once a month.
4thPanda I dont mind sending you seeds for your seed box so it can be filled a bit I can sort some seeds out for you pm me it is only the cost of a stamp, your box will up nicely from your garden as well
Poundland good for seeds they are
Gardengirl that is very kind, PM on it's way
