HELLO FORKERS!

Mrs G - maybe try them in your GH, they will get more all round light there - just watch for cold nights, and bring them back in if needed

Dove - sweet pigeon movie.  Although not sure why it appeared out of the chimney to start.

Panda - hazel hurdles are fence panel size - lovely guy who "wove" them delivered them yesterday - it was nice to meet their maker.  Will take some pics tomorrow if we get them sorted.

Panda, Fairy - thanks for your lovely comments.  I must admit i am really pleased with the PF - even more so this morning when i saw the lovely seed heads - didn't know they were a feature, so feels like a bonus.  The acer is called Autumn Moon - i was smitten at Hampton Court a couple of years ago, and am gradually nurturing it up the pot sizes as the nursery owner recommended.  2 more years and it gets to escape into the ground .....

Should I just re-sow my seeds?

I start all my Feb/mar sown ones on indoor windowsills.  starting them in the greenhouse might be ok now, as it is getting warmer, but you still have to be careful of cold nights.

Just been for a wander with my camera - here is how it is shaping up in a rather damp corner of southeast England ...

Sorry Mrs G - don't think they are sweet peas either - cosmos maybe?  Sweetpeas come up as bright green shoots, with quite a lot of leaf early on.

Sorry - should have said morning all.  Damp here, but not actually raining, so just been round the garden with the camera - its growing a mile a minute at the moment.  If i get a break between the showers i will get some more plants in the ground.

Hazel hurdles arrived yesterday - getting them up will be tomorrows task - i will be spirit level holder ......

Woody - you must catch the repeat of GW on Sunday morning - not only erythroniums, but alpines galore at the botanic gardens in Edinburgh.  Saw it, and thought of you
