David, Big surprise, listening to the radio with one ear turned off yesterday suddenly they were playing retro Blondie, turned both ears back on and enjoyed, she was good and still is so not all classics then.

Frank.

Good for you, Frank  ....you see, enjoyable music does exist outside the classics.

I've never been a fan of Cliff Richard, but (IMHO) he does an excellent job with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1obRHLmQ3gw     I just love it!

Morning, Dove.....hope your poorly wrist is getting better.

You mention cats and I know some may have already seen this, but for those who haven't I'm sure you'll enjoy this:

 Speaking of Llandudno, I took this shot during their annual Victorian Extravaganza weekend.

Trip to Llandudno over the weekend.. Have not been for  a long time and was suprised how beautiful and unspoilt the bay is.

I agree.....shame about the offshore wind-farm though.

Sweet peas from this year's seed - do they come true?

When would you recommend David? I have never sown in autumn before so not sure of the best time?

 

There really isn't an exact time.....it's broadly accepted that sowing should be done in the autumn, but then, it isn't even autumn yet.

I tend to sow according to the prevailing weather conditions rather than a specific time. The best case scenario is to sow when there is still sufficient warmth to germinate the seed followed by cold weather to prevent them putting on growth. This could be as late as November.

I usually add this info here:  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/growing-sweet-peas/6143-56.html

Too early to be sowing sweet peas!

Root Trainers for Sweet Peas?

Morning, Amy

Those 'individual peat pots' you mention are unsuitable as they don't have enough depth to accommodate sweet pea's very deep root system.

There are quite a few different types on the market.....I use those resembling black polythene bags, sold by Eagle Sweet Peas: http://www.eaglesweetpeas.co.uk/gallery.php?g=8 These need to be removed before planting out.

You may prefer biodegradable types, if so, these may suit you better:  http://www.amazon.co.uk/Arthur-Bowers-Fyba-Tubes-Onions/dp/B00E3C3G6G

I take it I have redeemed myself?

Now, I must get myself moving towards some work.

PS. Lily, you see, we do like the same music.

Interesting that you say that your Pa made his pile modernising the railways, Lyn. This happened quite a lot at the time i.e. fortunes were made  laying North Sea gas-pipe lines for instance.

Yours truly was on the payroll of BR for life.....which accounts for my present frugal existence & downtrodden state.
