Is anyone here a carnivorous hobby grower in the UK that might permit me to bombard them with questions?

I am a Monty fan; but am I the only one wanting to drag the man to a suit fitters and get him out of those ridiculous clown clothes he's sporting? He looks like he's been found in the church yard and given second choice on the good will box.

Some suggest microwaving the seeds before giving them to the birds (cooled of course) to stop them from germinating.

I keep looking at seeds on seedsaholic; buying seeds doesn't break my no plants rule til the garden is done right?

Has anyone has opinion on the company? Should I avoid them?

See original post

 I always buy from either that one or Premier seed Direct and Just seed.

See original post

 Cheers Lyn! I'll look at those too. Obviously for educational purposes not at all intending to spend ...... Oooh.

Retired to bed at 21:15.

The sign of a successful (hard work) camp at the museum! I'm not sure my ear drums ever will be the same.

Lots to say but so little energy.

Keep safe everyone.

Having a peaceful (well mostly) few minutes inbetween finishing scrubbing the museum and the scouts arriving. The coffee shop smells of pie and mushy peas which is at least a good sign that supper is cooking!

What are you planning for around the extension Fairy?

Tiny pieces? Hell my cardboard boxes are thrown in whatever size pieces the dog presents to me after he's finished playing with the box. Don't be so delicate with your compost bin: just throw it in!

Oh hell Lesley that doesn't sound good! I hope you're not in too much pain.

Lily feeling... well stable in the fatigue at least! I wish I had enough energy to keep up with all the things I need to do. Fortunately with the nursery and scout groups you get dragged along and at least sleep well on the trusty camp bed!

I really hope your friend gets the help they need. It's horrid to think the system is so overstretched.

I don't really notice Hollie around the forum Verdon so can't comment on what they're like but it's such a shame that just as we start to settle and relax after the drama from the forum change and get ready (sorry Pat) to enjoy our summer gardens at their best that someone is so fixated on little nothing special you that they'd rather waste their time on the keyboard fighting than battling the much more serious SLUG INVASION

SERIOUSLY the damn things are everywhere!!

Right; tea drank (Thank you Dove) I'd best get to work!
