Violas or pansies. Which is superior?

Posted: 18/02/2013 at 19:00

I love Violas, they always look so dainty. But, I like Pansies too, I have quite a few panies in my front garden and I must say in their defence that they flower their socks off every year, Even if they do go a bit leggy after a while I just cut them back and off they go again. Now Violas, I also have these in my front garden, and I have to say they look so sweet bobbing in the breeze and yes I have to agree Verdun they are more classy but I can't help it, I love them both

Talkback: Early seed sowing

Posted: 18/02/2013 at 18:46
I have sown some tomato seeds this weekend and sweet pea. It is just great to be out in the garden, and it is lovely to walk into a lovely warm greenhouse. I have my little heaters in my greenhouses and it keeps them nice and warm. My fuchsias are staring to put out green shoots along with several other plants. I just love the spring and the start of a new gardening year.

I have popped into Fork Handles now and again,  I don't read it all the time but when I do I really like some of the funny comments on there and how chatty and friendly it is. I feel that everybody on this forum are so nice and give great advice. You always get people that will post everyday but those of us who only post now and again I think are always still made to feel part of this great gardening community. 

Really need some help, badly!!!!

So sorry to hear your sad story. I do hope you get it sorted out and get all your things back. It must be so distressing to have something like that happen and I can not begin think how you must be feeling. Last year I had someone take a short cut over the fence as they running away from the police and they jumped through my greenhouse and broke all the glass and the greenhouse had only been up a few weeks, I was nearly in tears over that, but its nothing compared to how you have suffered. Do let us know what the outcome is. Good Luck

I haven't seen Hedgehog in my garden for such a long time. We have recently had a garage put up with a new side gate and my husband has left a gap at the bottom of the gate for the hogs to pass through (I hope).

I've got a heated propagator, my husband got it for me. At the moment I've got Alstromerias in there and the tempreture is just over 80F. I have got Begonias to grow and the tempreture for them will be about 70F. This is my first year with a heated propagator and I am looking forward to putting it to good use.

I haven't had many birds in my either, and RSPB Bird Watch was disapointing to say the lest as I hardly counted any birds compared to last year.
Just lately though I have notice the Blue Tits starting to check out the nesting boxes and I've got two Robins coming into the garden, so spring must be just around the corner, I hope.
