What did you buy?
Do you remember the Cinerias that Beechgrove did last year, we were all so impressed that we said we would give them a go I also bought some red zinnias, red amaranthus, verbascums, eryngiums.........I can see a car boot sale next year, although this years seedling are struggling today
I did and forgot-thanks for reminding-they showed them in flower in the early shows?
Another good Beechgrove last night I thought
I do like all the trials and the new varieties of plants. Jims comments about compost particularly useful. I want to know how those school kids grew such healthy plants, a heated greenhouse maybe?
I missed the bit about seed composts in a previous programme as I was on the beach-what conclusions did they reach?
They may have bought the plants in
New Horizon peat free seed compost was top rated at 20p a litre.
No! they showed the pupils sowing the seeds then planting them out, was I hoodwinked
People have apparently been "braving" the winds a rather overused adjective in my opinion-Chery was being constantly brave when she split from hubby-she and Katy Perry are on Graham Norton tonight
Are we already looking at tv highlights, I have not had lunch yet.
Fighting my way past football hyperbole
I had fish finger sandwiches-yummy
I have made soup but now want fish finger sandwiches
Compromise-have soup sandwiches.
Sotongeoff: you're right - it's 'orrible here.
Went to sort out casualties (broken hollyhocks, roses all over the place) and got blown off my stepladder ... ouch ... just had a strong cup of tea, need a stiff drink.
Going up stepladders just before going away is dicing with death-you have been very brave
Beechgrove - who they?
For brave read b. idiot. No permanent harm done, except to the philadelphus that got landed on. Just discovered Beechgrove happens in Scotland. Is it good?
Yes Sky 990 on Thursdays or i-player for 7 days
They do lots of trials and is more informative than GW
smallswan I would ask the carrier pigeon to bring you some navy rum but he is refusing to fly.
Beechgrove is great they do lots of trials on plants/compost etc You can watch on i-player or BBC Scotland.
Thanks: that seems like a good occupation come Friday tea time. it's still blowing like a tropical storm, but at least the rain's eased up. The May floods haven't all gone yet: we could do without more of the b*****s.
In amongst the wind and the showers I have mowed off the daffodil leaves in the naturalized grass strip-that is it for today
You have been out too, so brave the pair of you.
