Thank you, Nora. I found the thread I was looking for, eventually. David K knows loads about sweet peas, there was a long thread that he started, full of advice, and someone was asking about growing sweet peas.

There is loads of information on this past thread.  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/growing-sweet-peas-2014/2015/520591.html

That one would be better for plants, but I think the V shaped one is for people in wheelchairs to get their knees under.

You can plant hardy shrubs now and roses.

Slugs are very fond of sweet peas. If the leaves have been completely eaten it may be bad news, don't throw them out just yet though.

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.

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.
