Lyn - huge hugs - nothing more I can say really. Its the most difficult thing in the world, but you are doing all the right things.
Pouring here - no snow for us this time!
Actually - tell a lie - the one in that photo is a self watering version of the same thing. I have a production line going most years - on the heated version to germinate, then on the self watering to grow on a bit, then pricked out to the GH, then in pots and into the cold frame and finally to the garden
I love mine Its one of the ones with 7 mini trays
Here it is last year after the lids had come off. I used to have mixed results growing from seed - now I rarely have disasters Can't wait to get started again this year ...only a few more weeks now
You're doing well Matty - hope each day gets a little easier
I'd be happy to pay more for British milk, just like I do for free range stuff - but i'd worry about whether the extra got passed back through to the farmers. Maybe a return to the milk marketing board is not such a bad idea - make us all aware of the choices we are making
Yvie - i do as Lyn does and grow nerines in pots that i keep in an unheated GH all winter. I get flowers that way, whereas the ones planted in the garden produce leaves every year, but never any flowers (they've been in 5 years, so i've given up hope. Should dig them up really, but they are doing no harm). Hope you made it through the snow for Nanna duties
Littlest chicklet is on a school trip (GCSE mocks finished yesterday) to the theatre in London. Treat for the girls - less so for the parents who have to be there for pick up at 11.45pm. Need to find a way to stay awake til then. If this evening's snow arrives I will be sending OH - i hate hate hate driving in the white stuff
Just read back ...Good luck with the new garden Hollie - keep us posted with your progress
Don't know what it is, but it has made me smile Roll on spring
