It's hasn't put it how I put it with the titles on top and the rose on top. Weird!


I get that all the time, Lizzie.....not only does it prevent you from composing your posts as you would wish..... it's so annoying.

Like your antirrhinum close-up & rose, although l I can say is that my Pilgrim pic is fairly typical of the variety.

  Nice yellow rose, Deano. If you like yellow roses, you may like this 'The Pilgrim' of mine.

Btw, it's a short climber.

Like it David.

Is that a place near to you?


About 25 miles due north, KEF.

Any good lawn mower forums?

Not at all David. My new lawn isn't going to be very big at all, if I'm still enthusiastic about keeping the lawn nice by the end of summer I may upgrade to a different mower. 

I picked up the mower today and it does look like a nice machine. 


Pleased to hear you have it & it's what you are looking for.

Just as matter of interest, I decided to do away with two small lawns last year and have an electric version of your new mower to dispose of,,,,,,,it's almost brand new, only being used for one season.

A bargain awaits someone!

Fingers crossed for you, Leadfarmer.

My concern would be that it only has a 30cm (12inch) cutting width blade and given the dimensions of your planned lawn, you will have to make so many passes, it will take forever to mow.

Something like so (17inch blade) is what I would be considering:

Hope I don't seem to be interfering!

Verdun - I sow my seed two to the pot and plant them out without separating them.....this is for cut flowers rather than for exhibition.

You mentioned varieties earlier, my own preference is for picotee types, although it's a personal preference thing.

Tracy - Good luck & keep in touch if you need anymore help.

This isn't an ideal time i.e. light levels besides temperatures, for sowing.....10c would be the ideal temperature for sowing.

I haven't seen those posts you mention, but of course, the mice are really only interested in the seed... not the seedlings.

New greenhouse.....exciting times!

A bit of brightness from last Spring.

Love that lovely yellow flower, it a poppy?

Hi, Tracy...yes, put them in your cold greenhouse when they have germinated, but try to do it when there no severe frosts......deffo not outside in their final quarters. Once they've acclimatised they will tolerate very low temperatures.

Depending on the temperature of where they are now, they will take between 7 & 21 days to surface.

Depending how these progress, you may well wish to sow more in another couple of weeks or so.

Good luck!
