Sweet peas, lobelia (indoors, need warmth) and broad beans. A lot of plants prefer waiting until March, longer daylight hours, weather getting warmer (hopefully).

I hadn't actually realised Walsingham was so far north! We were staying with friends in North Norfolk when we last went.

I don't want to upset the apple cart if people have chosen another day. There will be future times, we'll be back in April and June. But I can do Saturday 13th Feb. Need to please the majority.

We'll be having a day out in London visiting the Painting Gardens, Monet etc exhibition with friends on the 12th though.

veg trug or not..

I'd never heard of a veg trug, so I looked them up. Found this blog. https://vegtruggrower.wordpress.com/page/3/  They look good for elderly people, people in wheelchairs and people with small garden who want to grow veg. But look quite pricey.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. That's amazing Chicky.

Thanks Dove, thought it might be. We are planning a day in London.

Another grey day. Still have some violas to plant but either no time or weather hopeless. I bought loads of plug plants as I wanted something pretty in the garden on my Open Day on 8th May.

We can do Tuesday 9th and Saturday 13th, but looks as though that's not on. The timetable looked to me as though the snowdrops are open most days in February.

Oh no.....NOT AGAIN

I don't think Verdun really needs our help. I think he will have a look and buy something whatever we say.

greenhouse thermometer

Like Dave, I have a simple minimum/maximum thermometer. Then I know if it got too cold at night and too hot in the day.
