Sowed seeds yesterday, and am now on daily germination watch. Think i might be in the early stages of this affliction. Many squeals when green shoots appear, plus have to drag all other family members against their will to have a look ..... Yet to elicit any squeals from them - heartless souls

Am pleased with the way they look though - and if they are polyanthus i don't have a theatre, but a collection of old bricks with pots standing on them (!) - so i will carry on pretending

Our GC sells hazel poles, sharpened at one end, as bean poles - in with the veg stuff - not expensive if i remember rightly. Why not give them a ring to save a wasted outing - i remember those days when it took longer to get in and out of the car than you spent at your destination
