Greenhouse growing

Once the plants are big enough to handle they should be pricked out into pots. But what plants are they? If tender annuals they will need more warmth while they are such babies.

Gosh, he was nice looking. I'm north of Périgueux. Bergerac is more south.

I'm quite happy for people to come, used to do B & B, but not all expenses paid!! Like a party, got space, but lack money! Cheap wine here though.

Are you and Becks really that near? Does anyone on this forum actually see each other?

I'm afraid I don't think 6° is warm enough either. They come from warm countries. North facing is not really the right place for it.

Thank you Geoff. That seed company looks great, can't believe the prices.  I'll look more thoroughly when I have a quiet moment. Where is the photo of you in shorts?

Bunny, I'm in the country with forest around, my broadband is just worse than yours! I thought England was so hi-tec and France was behind. Some of the French web sites are fairly awful.

Yuk to choc. semolina! Reminds me of school.  Give me choc cake anyday. Except I'd get horribly fat. What is it about being a certain age that helps the weight pile on? Could eat unlimited cake when young.

Looks a great idea, never seen them here. I think seeds are more expensive in France. Been looking at a French seed catalogue, no runner beans, no Sungold tomatoes, no perpetual spinach, no parsnips. Garden centre has more choice, but still no runner beans.

Jean, yours are a lot better than mine but not a patch on Geoff's and Gary's.

Propagator sounds great. Never heard of a weird seed disk.

Wanted to prepare the broad bean bed, which had been roughly dug, but raining yet again. It was a nice day yesterday, but spent a lot of it stacking logs.

Flo, thank you. Resize your image worked and was easy. I reduced a photo of my granddaughter that was about 3 Megas that my daughter sent. Took a little time to upload though and some of her photos are 5.5 Megas!

This forum is good for computers as well as gardening.
