Morning all.

Great news Dove!     I'm not a feminist apart from equal pay for equal work. I like a man to carry my bags (apart from the handbag!), they have more muscle after all. Men and women aren't the same, hurray!, vive la difference!

Light snow shower in the night -2°, but sunny now. Some tomatoes have germinated!

What a friendly place this forum is. It would be lovely if you two could meet and discuss gardening because of the forum. I'm sure many of us have a lot in common.

That sounds a great idea Verdun, with pictures of the plants and their problems and film of how to do things to illustrate people's questions.

What's the weather like in your area?

-2° this morning, snow shower in the night but sunny now, clouds coming in the distance.

Trachelospermum jasminoides or star jasmin is evergreen, white flowers, smells wonderful. This article says it may need winter protection but mine survived -17° and snow last year. The leaves went a bit brown and a lot fell off, but by summer they'd all grown again and it hasn't lost any this winter.

There is also clematis armandii and hydrangea petiolaris, which are quite vigourous. Is it in sun or shade?

Night Goldie. Were you in the GH Bunny at this time of night? Is it lit and heated?

Love cheese on toast with Worcester Sauce. Don't like Branston.

Going to bed soon.

So it was, it sort of disappeared under the other posts. Strange taste she has! I'd prefer Marmite, like Becks.

I think it's too early to plant potatoes, the leaves are meant to come up when the frosts are over and it's very cold at the moment. Ian's potatoes will be fine in the light.

Why are you having toast and tomato sauce if you don't like it?

Daren't go to the GC again either or the supermarket. Bought enough to make a new bed, especially by the time I get my plug plants all 600 or so of them! OH came back from choir and I told him of my sinful spending spree this evening. He just smiled in an indulgent sort of way. He's used to me.
