So many frosts

Posted: 22/02/2015 at 15:59

Lazy winds indeed KT, in which case why don't they go and have a nice lie down and leave us alone!!!  

Even the birds have given up and found somewhere warmer to hide out.

Brrr, it is bitterly cold this morning here, but nothing in comparison to those temperatures Obelixx!  It feels colder than the freezing it is because of a very sharp wind that goes straight through instead of the long way round you!  It is now raining as well - feels like a day to stay indoors, watch the birds as they - in spite of the cold - examine the nest boxes, and admire the blue and purple reticulates which are cheering up a couple of pots. 

When can I start sowing ?

Too Late? I shan't start sowing much for a good few weeks yet - there are a few things indeed, such as sweet peas for now, broad beans and so on, but the majority not until life warms up a bit yet.

Normal frosts for this time of year, i.e. most nights  - which is why we don't plant outside for a good long time yet!

It's really far too cold for aubutilon outside.  I've grown mine in pots for years, they et brought into the cool greenhouse in October, depending on the weather -and never go out again until April.

Never heard of the cinnamon tip, and imagine the wonderful small in the greenhouse - Christmas all year.  Will certainly try that one, thank you Edd.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I don't think our compost heap goes short!    I'm always amazed at how quickly the kitchen compost bin (no, we don't make compost in the kitchen) gets filled up and has to be trotted down to the heaps.  

Odd corrections?

I have no predictive text in use , nor auto correct, (tho' I did mention t, but it is off)  and so far, it is only this site that does it!!

Alan D, I love your style of gardening - just as I do it - minus the tea which I can't drink, but there is always something refreshing to have now and again.  May Spring, and the kettle, continue to work well as it goes along.

Indeed Nutcutlet, but that perfume!  Mind you only need one or two to fill the house with the perfume.  My friend was given a box containing 9, which all flowered at once, and drove her outdoors!! They had to go onto the step to be admired from afar!
