I thought in the interest of education (and should anyone else be googling these plants) I'd update this thread.


SEPTEMBER


24 of my seeds received three months in a plastic pot kept moist (not yet) in sand in the fridge.


24 of my seeds went straight into moist compost and were plonked in a sheltered area of the garden.


6 of my seeds twanged off my potting bench at high speed never to be seen again


JANUARY


My fridge was emptied and my 24 chilly seeds put in moist soul. They then joined the others in the garden.


MAY


Not counting chickens yet but there are four whisps of life in the fridge pot. Nothing yet in my au natural pot.


What can we deduce so far?


Well if you know of a plant that could be granted weed status give it to Clarington if you don't want it to grow ;)


Early days but it will be interesting to try and keep a little log of these going on for your amusement.

B3 my garden is ONLY stocked with plants from the sin bin. It really frustrates me when I go in find they've found an enthusiastic person who actually cares for the plants!!

Wonky; you wouldn't chuffing believe it but...


I've hit the age when friends are getting pregnant DELIBERATELY.


Seriously I swear someone must have sent a memo round they're all at it! Even the sensible ones.


Fortunately I don't check my inbox very often so have missed out on the latest batch of sproglet's.

Have I grown too much

I'd have told him to stop counting and start watering! It's all normal; remember if there's space there's not too much.

Well that's the lawn cut, and thanks to Clarington tripping over the world one of the flower beds too.


Still at least the weeds are less noticeable now.


My lawn has suffered somewhat with the hound and his lordship using it all winter. I'm not sure whether to leave it and hope it bounces back or try and investigate a pet safe way to give it a boost. What do you think?


Don't seem to be able to shift a headache that's been bugging me all day. I hope I'm not allergic to the sunshine!!

Your new-look forum

Yay I can post pictures from my mobile!


I've just used the latest post" forum option. The first time it worked fine so after commenting on a thread I clicked it again to see what else I've missed... it's now refusing to show me anything newer than three days ago (including not showing the thread I'd just responded too).


Something needs tweaking if you'd be so kind Nora!

Interesting you say that Dove; I'm finding the website better on my phone!


Well my scouts were mostly well behaved on their visit to the museum last night. BUT as they left their scout leader gave us a box of chocolates as a thank you! That is the first time I've been given anything other than a cold from visitors. One leader commented that he was amazed how much detail I was able to produce about the building, the emergency services (past & present) without any notes or prompts... I had to confess that while I can remember all of this it's rather pushed out day to day stuff like phone numbers! 


Today a very clever teacher has gotten around the voting closure by booking her two classes in to the museum; I have to say I was very impressed since so often it's a lost day.

Some of the plants in flower in the garden (I missed off the clematis, strawberries, and random blue flowered thing that just will not die no matter how much we ignore it. )
