damp here in Portrush Northern Ireland. come on sunshine! Dying to use my plastic greenhouses for seeds-too scared too in this cold! x
Bunny..The instructions on one tom variety, Cerise are in French will need to check on line if it's a bush or cordon . Clearly that one was bought because of the pretty picture on the packet, it looks to produce loads of toms on the vine.
I'm pretty sure that "Cerise" is a cordon tomato, on my french packet it says (in French) to pinch out the side shoots.
Thanks Liz. Googled after posting, it is a cordon.
north manchester ..dry hazy sunshine a few times still working with plenty of layers on!!! happy st patricks day
Glad about that. I'd have looked silly if it wasn't!!
It's been a lovely day in Swansea again today
Rain Sleet and now snow and the snow flakes are massive, but as it's been raining the snow isn't laying at the moment everywhere is just a wet sloppy mess, I should think if it drops below freezing which it's on 0.0c at the moment it will be a different story.
Did the day go well he asked, indeed right up to two the afternoon then it all went base over apex.Dark cloud rain snow sleet and as I closed the blinds the sleet was heavy and laying, tonight and part of next week snow Easterly winds well below freezing.Am I glad I left the compost in its bags the seeds in the packets and the pots dry in the garage, this is no time to be putting seed down.
Tis reet Bunny Lassy, oopt t'north be a luckin orrible, better gannin yam and gittin me ganzi then.Country file was on the South coast tonight, that brought back memories of Wyke Regis and boat testing on the mere behind Chessil bank. Dancing in Weymouth full of holiday makers, a lovely time was had by all.
Heavy Dark clouds with a sprinkling of sunshine and @4c now
Stockton on Tees is dull dowdy and dismal to put it mildly, I could describe it in more rounded and colourful terms although it may shock the Moderator (I doubt that).The one joy is seeing my primroses sitting well above a pond I did not have yesterday smiling at me, a long lasting colour fest I love them.
Bright and sunny. Hard frost in the ground - -3C in GH - very odd though as ground level had the frost but the top of GH was in bright sun with the vent open a little way.
May get out and dig more front garden
Much the same here Frank, trying it's hardest to snow and the weather men are telling me that we have a predicted 8 inches of it on the way, the A66 over the Pennines is closed due to heavy snow, and just when we think it's all over
Downpours with tiny sunny periods and lots of wind.
A sharp frost with sun first thing today.
It's clouded over, stayed cold & breezy so at least the washing dried pretty well. Have been busy indoors today, although did swop some houseplants around- a sort of gardening task. J.
