Yes you can. It grows like a weed here, seeds itself and spreads. I'm constantly pulling it up. Why do you want cuttings?

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Was a sunny day today, though a bit cold. Spent nearly 3 hours weeding and tidying the veg garden bit behind the GH. Hadn't looked at it for ages, was in a state. Two piled high barrow loads of rubbish removed and a small bucket of large potatoes from a forgotten row, hope they are OK.

Glad you are liking the mountain DD. Looks like whipped cream.

I've spent nearly 3 hours outside. Got up 2 piled barrow loads of weeds and rubbish from the veggie garden. Found a forgotten row of potatoes that I hadn't dug up. Dug up a small bucket full, they look fine, will try some mashed tomorrow. Tonight is Moules Marinières with baguette and green salad. Found tender young perpetual spinach leaves in veggie garden, young frothy fennel shoots and flat and curly leaved parsley to go in the salad.

I've just bought a new shower head too. The one I bought last week was hopeless, water spraying out in all directions where it shouldn't, so I've changed it. New one is fine.

Lovely day now, has warmed up. Need to tackle the veg garden.

Morning all, -4°, frosty. I've been out feeding the horses and walking the dog. Hands are tingly now they are warming up.

I hope you have a good lunch lily.

I hope you get the Doctor's appt. Clari.

I live in Dordogne, I think summer must come a bit earlier here.

Seed planting

That's what I do too, sow in straight lines.

I grow them but I don't sow the seeds until early April and plant them out when the weather warms up. They like warmth. I usually have too many, but they do store quite well.
