Frank, you're taking it too serious. Wires often get crossed on these forums mainly because sense of humour is difficult to portray using text. Given the time I've known you, you must realise that much of what I say here is just light-hearted banter and have always been your No1 fan.

Music taste? Perhaps Lily & I have a wider spectrum.  "Boy bands & Spice girls" erm  I am over 21, Frank.

Just as thought there was hope for Frank ......seems we are the only ones with taste, Lily.

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!

 

HELLO FORKERS!

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

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
