Nearly all mine are hayloft - they took 2 or 3 years to flower, and I bought some from GC's already in flower to add to them (and because i was impatient).  But now the plugs are much better plants than the ones bought full grown - i guess they have established themselves in situ, so no transplant shock.

Morning all

No rain here yet, but its on its way.  Forecast for tomorrow looks good, so that will be my gardening day.  But must go and have a look at it all before the rain - not been home in daylight since last weekend

Welcome Apricot.  And well done Lizzie for getting in the "livre jaune" - or whatever they call it.

Beau - hope viewings go well.  Yvie - hope aches ease soon.  Lesley - think we are all due rain soon.  And great to see you MrsG - you've been missed!

My manic work stint is now over for a bit .... great day today, so it was all worthwhile.

And now ...... time for GW (well, in an hour)

Great space DD - I can smell the roses already . Lovely space - is it freshly weeded or reclaimed from grass?

Hope the foot recovers quickly Ggirl - hate it when old injuries come back

On a train into London for the second part of my working day.....roll on Friday

Morning

Good luck for moving day Lily, and good luck with the Garden Inspector tomorrow Lizzie (will be out early tomorrow, so unlikely to pop in here).  I'm sure your garden will wow him - its perfect for an open garden.

Pitch black here now, so no idea what weather the day holds, but got some welcome rain yesterday.  The ground was hard and dry when I was planting at the weekend - a pick axe would have been handy - so rain is good at the moment.  I can't face the great annual weedfest until the ground is a bit softer.

off for a lecture thing in London this evening - so might catch you all when I'm on the train later.

Morning all

Chicklet passed her driving test - thats smilies for happy and worried at the same time.  Being in the car with her recently I had found myself pretty relaxed - so I guess that means she was ready.  Will be great for her to have a bit of independence - we are in the middle of nowhere and not well served by buses or trains without a car journey to the station first.  But that won't stop me worrying

Busy busy again at work - looking forward to a respite from Friday.  Cold is doing much better thanks - no more pill popping.

Hope yvie's missing parcel is plants ( the best sort). Love your gadgets namesPanda - we have a car called Arnold 

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Fidget - thinking of you - ((hugs)) - doesn't seem enough, but can't find other words.

Verd - i so hope that your Mum settles - she has been through a lot of frightening things recently, and this is probably a reaction to them.  Now she has some stability, hope she will start to relax.  On the violence/aggression - my Aunt was one of the nicest people I know, and yet she got very aggressive for brief periods when she was ill - but could never remember any of it afterwards (and she didn't have dementia, so had a good recall of pretty much everything else).  

My heart goes out to you all.  And that Lyn gets good news soon too.

Planting Allium Bulbs

Posted: 28/09/2014 at 19:55

Sure i heard somewhere recently (?GW) that it is a mistake to plant bulbs too shallowly, but you can almost never plant them too deeply - they always find their way up - so I'd leave them
