With hesitance I resurrect this thread, but just to say that Wintersong's account is still active and hopefully she may decide to re-join us at some point.


Root Trainers

I would recommend root-trainers for growing sweet peas (with one reservation) that is they are best for seed sown in autumn.

Still okay, but the advantages decrease for seed sown after Christmas and beyond as root congestion is less of a problem.

Has anyone made their own greenhouse staging?

Posted: 06/01/2016 at 21:40

Just as a temporary measure until I had time to do a proper job, I made one from a pasting table, something like so:   http://cpc.farnell.com/harris-decorating/9799/wallpaper-multi-purpose-table/dp/TL15372?CMP=CPC-PLA having said that, it did last for about five years.

I don't think I would be tempted to make one from one of those flimsy ones with hardboard tops costing around a tenner....too prone to sag in the middle.

Strictly is back!

Take heart ladies, I miss very little where Strictly is concerned, but I don't recall it either.

Probably this was only ever intended to be a time filler but you may still enjoy:

Wot you after David ? 

Well, for peeps to feel a little happier with life.

PS. I'm feeling the post-Christmas boredom thing too.

Anyone fancy a hug?? Think I may have one to spare after I've PMd one to KEF.

Absolutely nothing wrong with your well intentioned message,  Pansy  xx

Exactly, Lizzie, which prompted me to post 'I'm puzzled  what is the criteria for being 'missed'?' etc, upthread.

For what it's worth, I think the loss of Wintersong would be a very sad loss  to this forum.

Strictly is back!

DK - It's a rumba so the couple is not stuck together.   Beautiful and I have no memory of having seen it before.  How could it happen that I miss a show?


Not to be taken too literal, Obs ......but what may be noticeable is a little stumble at the end......but what the heck! It's four tens from me.   

Pleased to be of use, Lizzie.......obviously a man of taste.

Btw, it was (surprisingly) supposed to have been an 'American Smooth'.
