I'd like a plant like this...

Knautia is very happy in my garden in SW France and it doesn't mind drought, but scabious always gets mildew and always dies.

Growing mistletoe

Alan Titchmarsh did it years ago with fresh mistletoe berries on Gardeners World. He made a little cut in the bark and pushed the berry in. A few took, can't remember, may have only been 2, but he did several.

Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

I sowed Lobelia, Busy-Lizzies and sweet peas 3 days ago. Sweet Peas are on a windowsill in the study which is quite cool and the others are in heated propagator on the kitchen windowsill. I have a heated by a cable cold frame in the greenhouse and a cold frame just by the kitchen wall for later.

Other seeds I'll sow in March. Have 2 more heated propagators.

I like oysters, but lobster is far superior! Good night!

Sue, read up to chapter 7, was gripped, but I really must go to bed as it's after midnight where I am, in Dordogne. You could make it a book! It's great. Please keep in touch. Are you really going to the Italian lakes? We'll be there in September.

That's a gorgeous sweet pea, wish you could send the scent as well.

I've just sown mine, wonder if they'll come to anything, usually too hot here. They are so fresh and delicate, dahlias do better here.

Hmmm, I know a joke involving Ying Tong, not sure it is along the same lines though so better leave it there for risk of offending

Lizzie hasn't posted again.....hope you're ok Lizzie xx

 

I'm fine thanks, Tracey. Went to watch TV. Was just in the middle of the weepiest bit in Midwives, when OH rang. I'd been hoping to hear from him but he sure knew the wrong moment!

Glad everyone had a good time at the snowdrops.

I'm sure Verdun's singing is delightful.
