Gardeners Boy, has your dad died? I seem to remember your parents having a diamond anniversary a year ago. You said your wife has carers, sounds as though you're not having a good time. Hugs and best wishes.

Morning all. Grey and showery.

Dove "Antiquity" is the cosmos I'm growing, but I started it on a windowsill and they went leggy. They are now in the GH and growing their real leaves. Does anyone know if you can bury the stems a bit when potting up, like you do with tomatoes?

Linda, I have over an acre  surrounding my old French farmhouse, the main flower garden behind the house is about 50m x50m, but there are other beds, lawns, shrub areas and veg garden on other sides. It's quite a lot of work so the standard of tidiness sometimes isn't very high!

All my plug plants are potted up now, lost count, getting on for 350. Then there are the seeds I've sown, which aren't quite ready to pot up, but lots have germinated.

Thank you, David.

Your magnolia looks very pretty like that but I hope it will be OK when the snow melts.

Very windy here too, with the odd shower. Have been potting up plug plants in the GH.

I think your photos are lovely, Liri, but then I'm like you and my camera is quite simple. I take holiday and grandchildren snaps. And my garden, of course.

My Dyson stopped working after about a year and it's very heavy.

I would hate to be a lawyer, all those facts to memorise and a lot of it very dull. Daughter did a year at Uni, changed and is now a teacher. Niece qualified and is now a social worker, they are both much happier in their current careers.

I put my post for here on the weather thread so here is some of it again. It's short.

Morning all, rained in the night. I slept badly, so did dog as OH forgot to turn his light out.

I will be potting in the GH this morning
