What new seeds will you be trying this year?

Wow Perki - that is an inspiration

And yes, I have bought the same seeds twice in a season - I like the consistency of taste explanation

About to downlad my Archers omnibus Dove Rob is despicable, but it makes for compelling listening.  Got caught in hideous traffic on the way to work last week - so I played the podcast, and didn't even notice how late it was getting

Toolbar works fine using safari on my iPad .....but not on my iPhone - hasn't worked since 2013.  But all will soon be sorted, I am quietly confident

Sorry you're feelng rough Yvie.  Verd - lucky escape

Plant labels

Posted: 17/01/2016 at 10:46
I use a brother plant labeller for anything going in the garden (but scribble for seedlings in the greenhouse - the labelling tape is quite expensive so only use it for permanent plantings). Three years on there is no fading at all. But agree with topbird about the look - I am moving to black labels with white writing (brother do a tape for that too) - but it will be a gradual changeover
