Italian rye grass seeds

I don't know about suitable for lawns. I have used it for reseeding a cow paddock, mixed with other grasses. It grows fast and tall but only lasts about 3 years. Farmers use it as a catch crop.

We haven't watched Poldark yet, recorded. OH fell asleep in the previous one and still hasn't seen it so we watched the last Mr Selfridge instead. Recorded all the Indian Summers so far, not watched any. Is it any good?

What a nerve, Hostafan!

Oh Matty, I'm so sorry, I hope you manage to rescue some. Mine haven't even germinated but I'll sow some directly in the ground next week, when I get back from babysitting granddaughters for 2 days. Going to son tomorrow.

This is my Tigger again (right) 11 years ago with my previous dog, Cassie. When I got Tigger as a puppy Cassie thought he was her baby and started producing milk! Cassie died aged 16yrs 9 mths. I think Tigger still misses her, he got quite clingy afterwards.

Yours is lovely Chicky and I think you have more out than me.

I'm trying to root this plant but will it work?

Hello Ryan. He was here, but it's 2013. http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/garden-questions-and-advice-/77947.html  There was another young gardener called Cody, but haven't seen him for a bit.

Back from lunch out at friends. 

I ran over a badger once, it was right in the middle of a village at 6am. It ran straight into my car as though it wanted to commit suicide, never knew they could run so fast. I was quite shaken. But I've never run over a hedgehog.

Raining here, so much to do outside and it's rained most of the week.

Morning all.

Never anything to watch on Saturdays, they think everyone goes out. Always too much on Sundays, bit of a juggle to get some of it recorded. We watched the last 2 episodes of Mr Selfridge last night.

Gosh, DD, you had to get up early on a clock changing morning. In the past I might have gone to that horse show with my riding friends, but not to ride, standard above me. But now I'm a Granny and most riding friends seem to have moved house so I'm going to church, followed by Sunday lunch with friends. Another reason why I've got fatter, change of lifestyle!
