Morning all. Haven't caught up yet; you chatty devil's!


I have a day at the museum (school group) to break up my roadshow with the ambulance service in Bradford. It's been great fun so I am grateful for the rest! That old ambulance + rush hour traffic isn't the most fun!

Philippa I have a pitcher that floats in a basket in my pond. It was in there all winter (froze solid) and is now flowering! I want to add some others too it (I am fascinated by carnivorous plants) but could do with advice even if it is just limited to where to get them from!

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.

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.
