When or why did the letter 't' become extinct in the English language.....or for that matter what has happened to capital letters? Don't know about anyone else, but it drives me nuts.

Is it the mobile phone to blame?

I've got about 30 seeds on the go in my unheated greenhouse. outside here are 7-9 at the moment, is that warm enough or should put them in my heated propagator? I'm hoping for flowers late August. Thank you in advance.

I presume this is for me and I further presume that '7-9' refers to centigrade temperatures.

In both instances, I would say they will be fine outside and would not be helped in any way by being put in a propagator.

My guess would be that they would flower well before late August.

Could I just ask that if anyone has any queries they think I may be able to help with, would they please raise those queries here on the forum and not in personal messages.

Good luck, rosemummy.....In my own SP baskets, I have to say that I have no experience of growing anything other than those specifically sold  for hanging baskets.

Started on the veg sowing!

Oh dear... the last thing I would wish to do, is to discourage anyone, but these early starts usually end in failure.

If say tomatoes are to be grown in a cold greenhouse (as most are) sowing the seed in mid-March is plenty early enough for most parts of the country.

Thanks, Rb...although I preferred the first one inasmuch as I wanted to show off the lovely feathers.

Either ways, it's a triumph in itself if the little bugg'rs don't fly off as soon as you pick the camera up.

John - just to say that as with most things in the garden, we are at the mercy of the weather. Given favourable conditions they may be flowering at the end of June.
