Has anyone done any gardening?

It's the picture on the left, or little crosses for most of us at the moment while the tech team have the problem. If you click on people's names you can see more about them, such as their previous posts or their details if they've given any. But you can't see back very far at the moment, if you try a squashed tomato appears! Sign of the techy problems.

What is an excellent idea?

Beginner with a greenhouse

If the greenhouses are unheated then you can't sow anything tender yet, like half hardy annuals. You can sow sweet peas, broad beans, onions, some peas. Not tomatoes yet. I sow mostly in March in the unheated greenhouse, or indoors or in heated propagators.

If you prune group 1 clematis now, such as montanas, you will lose a lot of the flowers.

Nanny Beach, did you know that there is already a thread with almost the same title?

Here it is in case you want to have a look. http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/anyone-done-any-gardening-today/590988-113.html 

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Still raining, but just drizzle, looks as though it may clear up. Do we still use that weather thread we used to have?

We go to Eastbourne on Thursday to pack up for the move to our Norfolk cottage. Long drive to Dieppe. Back by the tunnel on the way home from Norfolk. Will stay with Son 1 in mid France on the way home. I hope the tunnel isn't still being attacked by those poor immigrants in Calais. I heard that Medecins sans Frontières had built them a new camp.

HELLO FORKERS!

Don't overdo it, Pat. You'll need to rest more, having been ill. Dust can wait.

Do I need to do anything to my Salvia

Yes, cut them off. It will grow from the bottom. If you cut the flower spikes off as they fade it will flower for longer.
