Move way from the sweet-peas-guru says in a couple of weeks
I see we have passed 7000 shall I buy a lucky ticket?
Could you?- and can you make sure it is a winner this time-I have been let down so many times and Pam needs that holiday home in Cornwall
The sun is out, but a bit nippy.
Geoff, you seem much better!
Hollie, where did you get your cat from? Does she have a past 'history'?
Becks !!-how was the weekend?
Like a hurricane coming through!! Lively, messy, noisy but fun!
Geoff I have had a word with the ticket people they pointed out that not buying a ticket would not help.
Who is in charge of the balls?
Here is today's mope of the day
Hi, Bex...having thought a little more about sowing your sweet pea seed, I think it would perhaps prudent to wait until the spring to sow them. Of course, if you have a cold-frame or similar (this by no means frost-free as they will tolerate many minus degrees of frost) you could still sow them in a couple of week's time.
I have a plastic greenhouse David? I'll do a few in there, and some in the house? Then save some until spring for direct sowing? All options covered. Doesn't hurt to try I suppose.
No wish to preach, Bex....but *they shouldn't be in the house at any stage, it will just cause them to grow weak & straggly......in a fortnight's time, straight into the plastic greenhouse to germinate & remain there until planting out in the spring.
*It is pehaps advisable to start them off indoors in mid-winter and even then they must be put outside as soon as the seed has germinated.
Ok David. Thanks. x
This will be a first for me figrat! I don't do flowers normally, so I'm clueless!
This is like kids waiting for C********-chillax
Comics? Candy? Coulouring books? Oh!! You mean CHRISTMAS!! Ha ha ha!! Oh no Geoff, NOTHING is like waiting for Christmas! I'm excited already! Already started pressie shopping
Can we use the C-word yet, I am going to start making my cards this week.
I have learnt something really useful, I always start my SP indoors and they are always leggy.
Course you can use it kate! Don't listen to Victor Meldrew up there! He's secretley excited!
