Plan is to wait for microwave on free cycle, and use that in the shed! Mind you, the sad little second hand shop over the road has one, maybe I'll check that out too. Am planning to reuse a lot of stored potting compost for the bulb planting marathon.

Morning lovelies!

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?

01/10/2012 at 10:52

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.

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.

01/10/2012 at 11:56

No wish to preach, Bex....but *they shouldn't be in the house at any stage, it will just cause them to grow weak & 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

01/10/2012 at 12:01
I'm itching to get mine started as well Becks! Planning on sowing them into Root trainers and leave them in the cold frame...will wait until David K gives us the go ahead.

This will be a first for me figrat! I don't do flowers normally, so I'm clueless!

01/10/2012 at 12:33

This is like kids waiting for C********-chillax

01/10/2012 at 12:41

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.
