Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

Posted: 13/02/2014 at 18:38

I've sown more since last post, gazanias and 3 sorts of petunias. The Busy-Lizzies and Lobelias have germinated. They are tiny.

Rhododendron

Posted: 13/02/2014 at 18:31

That is exactly what happened to my dwarf rhododendron in a pot. The drainage holes blocked up and the leaves went droopy and then fell off. Wished I hadn't put off dealing with it (it was heavy) because it died. The soil was quite smelly.

Onions sets in modules

Posted: 13/02/2014 at 18:26

I would remove the whole module. How wet is your garden? Wouldn't want them to rot. I don't plant my onion sets until the end of March, or even early April, straight into the ground in the veggie garden, you will have onions earlier than me, but mine ripen when the weather is warm in summer and they store very well. Didn't need to buy any onions last year.

Mrs. G, the flooding hasn't been as bad in France and the wind in the last couple of days wasn't quite as strong as in the UK, but it's still been bad. I've never known such a wet winter. Brittany, the Var in South East France, the West Coast and base of Pyrenees have all had orange and red weather alerts and huge tidal waves and floods. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-25802278

Been a really awful day today weatherwise, rain, wind, cold. At least the plumber has been and fixed the 2 radiators in the sitting room that stopped working. There is a woodburner in there though. OH is going to put a shelf above the one under the window so I can put my baby plants there.

Went out to a friend's for lunch, drove by the side of the river which is full up, with sheets of water in the adjoining fields.

Glad you enjoyed yourselves and weren't blown away, but I was so looking forward to seeing what you all looked like. Bother.

The phone rang when I was writing that so I didn't see what puncdoc wrote. How scarey for you, hope you and your house will be OK.

Good morning all. A bit of sun! -1° Going to supermarket and DIY place. OH says he'll put a shelf over the radiator under the sitting room window to put my seedlings on. No window sill, it's on the outside, thick stone wall.

Thought I'd have another go at laying the paving stones on the the veg garden path. Wasn't raining, as soon as I started it poured. Happens every time! But I suppose that is a minor detail compared with the troubles others are having.
