Also, at the moment, if you try to look for past threads, eg type sweet peas into the search box, it only comes up with one page, the next pages are pictures of sweet peas - not past threads.

But I expect you are aware of all that. I just feel it would be best to get the site working properly before doing improvements. Sorry if I've stated the obvious, I expect you are on to it.

Sweet Pea seedlings

They don't really need bottom heat, they are hardy. You don't want to encourage them to grow long and spindly before planting out time. I keep mine in a cold frame, unheated. They need to grow slowly and don't care for too much root disturbance.

Hello Nora, that's OK by me. But when are the avatar pics coming back and PMs? Also if you try to look into anyone's past threads, including your own, a squashed tomato appears.

Thank you for this site. It's been really useful and people have also made friends through it.

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.
