Agree with you Jo - lemon queen puts on quite a show here too.  Mine are right at the back of the border, so i am happy for them to get as tall as they like

Dove - i'm enjoying this thread - it makes it much easier to follow goings on. In a few weeks we will have forgotten it was ever any different - just need some time to adjust. And now, i must do something constructive with my day .... This site could stop me ever getting anything done if i let it!

What new flower seeds are you going to grow in 2014

Gosh - are you trying to rival the Millenium seed bank .  Good luck with them all.  I find Google a pretty good source for sowing times etc if you have lost the packet, or if they were collected from plants.

IF you never had GARDENING ........................

It would have to be something else that:

  • gets me outside all year,
  • can be put down at a moments notice to a)help with homework b) ferry offspring to and fro
  • keeps me close enough to the house that the authorities could not accuse me of abandonning my children home alone

Not sure anything else fits the bill ......
