HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 05/02/2015 at 13:05

I post on 2 gardening forums, not a secret, and I sometimes look at others, including a French one. But my French spelling is so appalling I never write on it! I wonder if the other one I post on is the one KEF and Lily lurk on? Happy to have friendly lurkers, join in if you like. Does this forum have a place where it tells you if there are anonymous people looking in? I expect it's to big for that. Gardening forums are great for people like me in a foreign country, feel less isolated. I have some French friends, of course, but they aren't interested in gardening.

Are there seeds that don't like very cold storage?

I went to the Garden Centre today. They were having a complete reshuffle and the wall that divides the pets bit had been demolished. Loads of stuff, all the tools, fertilisers etc had been moved to the big unheated greenhouse area where they keep perennials, bulbs, pots and furniture. It was freezing! The potato tubers were there and dahlias, cannas and lilies (just in), also all the seeds.

 Does anyone know if there are seeds from plants that aren't hardy that mind being kept very cold? It's been down to -8° several times at night and the GH area is open fronted, felt very cold today.

Morning all. -3°. Sleet when I fed the horses.
Going out for some bits and pieces, like ink for the printer.

SG Lily, it's near a place called Angoisse. But there are several bathing lakes in Dordogne.

I had to net mine. French blackbirds must be greedier than yours. I grow a variety too.

Did you put it in a hot pan to seal it first, Bekkie?

Howling north wind tonight. OH is at choir, nearly an hour's drive home. I'm recording Wolf Hall so we can watch it together.

Funerals are miserable but they help to say goodbye. Will be thinking of you tomorrow, Verdun.

Good luck Panda.

Woodburner's lit. Shall carry on sorting photos and sticking them in albums, old fashioned I know. Got up to May 2013.
