I did it in the morning with washing in my hand and tripped over one of the dogs

I did need a drink after that just to kill the pain

Hello Fairygirl

Christmas day I fell down the stairs (not drunk) and pulled all the muscles in my back and trapped a nerve so sitting with the laptop and typing has been a no no until now I can't get to the office computer as my son has pinched that and called it his computer now (bless him)

Nut thank you for explaining what cv means

I started to sow some seeds this weekend in one of those jif prop seed trays first time I've used one as I don't really like them as I think they strangle the plants but I will cut down one side before I pot on

I'm trying to find a supplier for a pericallis as this Photo

 But I can't seem to find it also while I'm asking my book says this plant is called

pericallis cv can any one tell me what the cv stands for because when I type the cv in after the pericallis my search comes up empty but if I just type in pericallis it adds Senetti which is just a trade mark/name

To tell you the truth is it really viable to try and collect water from such a small area ??

Even a small green house doesn’t produce the amount of water needed to water all of your gardening needs with in that environment. I would think it would be better to direct you efforts into grey water collection that way the children are involved in recycling
