Not me Verd-crumbs only
Very particular about my toast/toaster and my tea flavoured drinks!
Love a Hebe-great for structure and Buxifolia is useful if you want an alternative to Box (hence the name!) and I've used it in pots as it looks like i've spent ages clipping it in to balls and it survives a lot of neglect! I just snip the flowers off
I love this word 'furtle' sounds like a cross between furtive and turtle; I too sowed seeds on 29/3 and the broccoli and leeks have come up, but I always write on the label the expected germination time so that I don't suffer from 'seedling angst'.
I just try to be patient but I'm the same as everyone else-looking at them constantly! I don't usually do tomatoes from seed so I'm delighted with the ones I've sown. Like you Artjak, some have come on quicker than others but they'll mostly be fine. I don't have anywhere to put them outside yet so I didn't want to sow too much anyway.
Just off to furtle up some dinner now..
arjak, seedling angst Brillilant. When I sow the seeds I do write the date on the label..............but have never thought about writing the expected germaination date on there as well
Red, I don't have a greenhouse, have you thought about using coldframes? Mine are basically sturdy, mini greenhouses.
Don't know if lidl uk has the same offer but next thursday there are dahlia's on offer at €2.99 in Lidl Ireland. (just in case).
I've grown Red Edge and it got quite big-about 3' x 3' (is that a bit bigger than dwarf?)so maybe watch how close they are to your drive RedD. Again I suppose it depends on the conditions you have.
Cant find a dahlia offer for the uk, must be an irish thing.
Have to say my 'Red Edge' ones got to that size in a couple of years so wasn't very slow growing Verd!!
I used to just take individual 'branches' off as well as giving them a trim after flowering Red.
