I don't soak or chit either.

Clematis offer

Posted: 26/01/2016 at 18:55

If they are that tiny then I think I would pot them on to a deeper pot until grown some more.

Clematis can take a while to get going, but can't tell you how long. I bought one in a small pot, had 2 flowers the first year, then 6 or 7, then lots.

One reason for not sowing too early is that there aren't enough hours of daylight yet for certain plants.

Potatoes..best ones for storage

My great great grandfather was Mayor of Norwich. I never wanted to go to France in the first place (1985) went for 1st OH.(who died)

But this is meant to be about potatoes.

Can a Rose Bush live in semi shade?

My climbing "The Pilgrim" faces east.

I hope you had those rose roots in some damp compost or temporarily dug in somewhere. Rose roots mustn't be allowed to dry out.

Haven't sown anything yet, probably March for me too, may sow lobelia the end of Feb.

When I was young I had sheets and blankets and I liked the feeling of weight over me. But now I have a duvet. Recently bought a very light weight 10 tog one from M&S for our new cottage in Norfolk. I was surprised how warm it was for the weight, had the heating off for the night. In the old flat in Eastbourne we had 4 tog for summer. In France we have a sheet for summer and a warm duvet for winter. The French don't use togs.

Just been to the re-cycling tip with a trailer of rubbish then to the DIY place for a new roof for the shed. The roofing felt flew off in the gales. Can't find roofing felt anywhere, even on line it's out of stock in SW France, so bought sheets of green painted metal roof. More expensive.

Such a gorgeous blue.

Morning all. Grey and misty here, but I don't think it's as pretty as DD's mist, feels as though the cloudy sky as slipped down too low, we are up on the side of a hill.

Good luck to Chicklet with her exams.

Going to the tip with the trailer and a load of rubbish from OH's clear out last autumn.
