AT v MD a bit academic as the former has gone....MD, doesn't impress & I really don't care what he turns his hands to. Don't care much for Chelsea either, for that mater & rarely watch the TV coverage.

I have not yet sown all of my SPs yet, all waiting their turn in the propagator.In there, they come well up within a wk, then get chucked straight into coldframe as soon as half have poked up shoots. CF open all day. Could I put them straight outside after germination, David, as space getting tight now?

Oh dear....not sure about germinating SP seed in a propagator. If it were me, I would just sow the seed where they are to flower.

Tracy - I'm not really sure about your plans to grow your SPs up the privet hedge. They are very robust and would most likely grow over the hedge and down the other side.....I'm not sure how this will fit in with cutting them & routine maintenance.

I would try to offer them some other type of support.

That's a strange fault, Forester and not one I've heard of.......perhaps the camera contacts need cleaning. 

It is a fact that a camera will use less power using the electronic viewfinder, rather than the LCD screen.

My own camera has a clever little sensor that shuts-off the LCD screen when you put your eye to the viewfinder and restores it when you take your eye away from it.

Tracy - Yes, they will grow up your privet hedge okay, but I rather wonder if it will be a problem at trimming time.

Btw, those you have just planted out, put a few small twigs around them to give support.

Sounds like yours are on the right track, Dove.

Malcolm - No need for nipping out the tops of those dwarf type. 

What's the weather like in your area?

Still bright sunny days & cold nights here in the Midlands.

Marvellous what a few consecutive days of dry weather can do....a few weeks ago Cheltenham race course was flooded. Now (according to today's news) course officials say it it's in better condition than ever.......in fact, they may have to water it.
