Wow! Caroline ....that salsa has to be up there with Jill Halfpenny's jive. Magnificent and fully worth the four 10s it received.

Another brilliant show, what a shame for the lovely Karen who thought she had let Mark down.

On tonight's showing, I think it will prolly be Mark & Jake in the dance-off...can't call who will go.

Just as they should be at this stage, Gg...second thoughts, I suppose you could replace the plastic lid at night until a few more have popped through.

Yes, remove any additional protection other than the cold GH itself and pray for some cold weather to keep them back.....although cold draughts are not a good idea.

As regards the hardiness of these little blighters, many times I've had the soil in their pots being a frozen block and yes, they've even been drooped over as if they were finished...but as soon as the weather warms-up enough to thaw them out, they pick themselves up and are stronger than ever.

To reiterate, frost won't kill them bit icy winds/draughts may well harm them.

Gg - Just to say (if you haven't already done it) any cover over them ie newspaper glass or the like, should now be removed from those seedlings.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Perhaps it should be remembered words that were exchanged on Saturday night:

Trent - 'we are rule breakers'.

Len - 'that's fine and I'll award a 6 instead of a 9'.

....and who had the final word?

I always think if you haven't sown your seed by December, you might just as well wait until spring.....just my opinion of course.
