Planting out seedlings

Posted: 27/04/2015 at 15:33

I think they would all suffer, but as the farmers here (Dordogne) have just sown maize, perhaps sweetcorn is the hardiest. Quite cool here at the moment.

Hello, Clarice, welcome to the forum, I'm in Dordogne, cold winters, hot summers, can rain very hard. Well done for taking the plunge!  I use a laptop so the smileys work.

I answered your question about posting photos on other thread, but I've never used an ipad so hope you can work something out.

You click on "OK", bottom right of the garbled message (at least that's what you do with a laptop) and the message disappears, then you wait. The wait depends on your broadband speed. Your photo appears and you click on "save". But with a pad you may need to click on something else to get rid of the message.

Hello all. Welcome Wonky Womble

I told the 3 grandsons to a crocodile park this morning, went very well. We saw them being fed, but crocodiles aren't very greedy so not as dramatic as I'd thought! They only need about a kilo a week and can go for ages without food. Bought the boys a boomerang each in the shop, but 2 work and 1 doesn't, so that was a bit of a bother. Hope it's sorted now.

OH had strict instructions to record Poldark, if he hasn't he will be on strict rations when I get home!

Yes it is. I looked it up and apparently it's not self clinging and only 6 foot tall, but mine is making it's way up the greengage tree without any help and it's taller than that. But it still has it's label.

 It's a lot taller than I thought it would be, growing up an old greengage tree. 3rd year.


Clematis Early Sensation.

What an awful thing to happen Mrs. G. I hope your OH is OK.

My sister didn't tell me she was married either with her first OH. But I was invited to the wedding with the 2nd one.

Morning all.
Going to daughter No 1 today, Granny duty, 3 small grandsons. Daughter and SIL going to Portugal. I'm there until Wednesday then other Grandma takes over.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Gardengirl, the pillar marks the end of a wall, about 1m tall, that divides the higher lawn from the lower one. First OH had it built in 1991 for a climbing rose which since died as deer ate it. Now that 2nd OH has fenced that bit of the garden, I have planted another rose.

Primrose C, Phil is beautiful. Hope he doesn't eat your plants.

Better than a sweet shop, GG!

French Bingo always goes on way past midnight DD. My daughter won a live chicken once. Poor thing had it's legs tied very tightly. It thought I'd rescued it and followed me about, but it turned into a cockerel. Kept him until he died aged 5.

Love your Poldark poem, RB. You are so clever to make it rhyme.

Finished the middle bed at last, photos on gardening today thread.

Thank you Wintersong for liking my photos on garden photo thread.

Nighties all.
