Check out the bulbs on offer,two packs for £4. I got a few packs of nerine.

These would normally cost a lot more else where. Go on treat yourself.

Bargain much cheapness!

Around about now people will be starting to sow seeds and having a clear out of old seed packets or seeds of plants that they have lots of. So let's put them out there/here for people to pick and choose and swap.

By the way has anybody got any sanguisorbia? I revisited a GW show from last autumn and some of these look amazing.

Are they trees?

I don't think I have enough room or the patience for seed grown trees. Thanks anyway

Thank you for your replies. Happy new year to all.  Nut I think that was me. It's exciting  to see seedlings this time of year,I've got some hellebores coming up they might have been from you but I have had lots of seeds from lots of generous people last year so I can't keep track.

Has anybody got any seeds that I can sow now for cold germination,or any suggestions?

I have sown some cow parsley in September,should it have started to come up yet or will it be spring?

My soil is still bare and I was wondering if anybody else had some seeds as a contingency plan?

I am trying to convince my wife to get some chickens.I am thinking of getting a second hand coup with about 4 chickens.but how much time do I dedicate to them,as I have two young children and a puppy now.

Are they cheap to feed? How many eggs do they lay as we eat around 20 eggs a week?

I have heard they go off the lay in winter. Is there anything else I need to know?

Any advice will be much appreciated.

Would a Virginia creeper,climbing hydrangea,clematis and a climbing rose look good?

Which ones have autumnal flowers or leaves?
