Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Hi, Rosemummy

Probably wise to leave your mini-greenhouse zip-flap door open once the seed has germinated......they are subject to condensation issues which could cause problems.

Sweet peas are very deep rooted, which is why some people claim good results using loo-roll middles.....sowing about six seeds in a 5" pot will work.

Thanks, Fishy....Balotelli is and never will be fit to wear the shirt. I just wonder where Rodgers' sense was, to even consider signing him.

Saw quite a lot of armchair footie yesterday  including the Everton game, so well done with that.....I also watched the Spurs game and of course that remarkable Eric Lamela's 'rabona' goal.

Balotelli.....didn't I say here, the day Liverpool signed him? 

Interestingly, Danny Welbeck was available for the same price (16m) at the same time.

Am I getting slow on the uptake, or is this a very odd thread?

DD - Seems too early & too warm maybe the problem. Not sure of the expected temperatures where you live. Something around 10c is best for germination, but they do need cold conditions after that to stop them romping away.

Must have, KEF.....it's as if they know I hate inefficiency!

All's well anyway, have paid Parcel Force and just received an email from Amazon saying 'We are writing to confirm that we are processing your refund in the amount of £35.60 for your Order ***-***- ***'.

Now here's another thing: Sent for some photographic equipment from Amazon (Amazon Marketplace, to be exact) costing £90 and although it was shipped from the USA it did state 'free UK delivery'.

Today I received a letter from Parcel Force stating that 'you have been sent a parcel from overseas, delivery of this parcel to you is subject to payment of £35.60 Customs charges raised by Border Force on behalf of HM Revenue & Customs'.

Rapid email to Amazon resulted in the response that the vendor shouldn't charge for anything above the total amount of the order confirmation invoice  and contact them for reimbursement. I did and they immediately apologised saying 'Sorry we shipped your order the wrong method the charges should have been prepaid' and if I would pay the delivery charges to secure my order, they would reimburse me via my Amazon account.

Getting a bit fed up with some deals I have done of late.
