Just submitted my results for the Big Garden Bird Watch. It was the same for me Forester2 they seem to know that you want to count them so they hide, little devils. It is a really relaxing hour just watching them though, most enjoyable.
I got some lovely Primroses today from Lidl. Their plants are always good.
I love this forum, everyone is so friendly. I do post now and again, I suppose I am a dipper, I dip in and out. The knowledge of some forum members is just brilliant, they have helped me out several times with queries.
We are also thinking of moving and my garden is just full of pots. I grow lots in pots, budlieas, roses even a silver birch. So my back garden would be left nearly empty as most of my plants I have grown from cuttings and I just couldn't leave them behind.
Wonderful news Mike
I sowed them at the end of February in a heated propagator in the greenhouse.
Yes, the Brussels are starting to form nicely. The variety is Evesham Special and on the packet its says "A slightly shorter variety which makes it suitable for the more exposed site". Don't know what's happened but they are definitely not short.
My Brussels Sprout seemed to have taken off like a rocket. I haven't done anything special to them to make them grow but they just seen to be very tall, they haven't even been bothered with Cabbage Whites either. Here is photo with my husband stood by them, he is 5ft 7in. Has anyone else got tall Brussels or are mine just freakishly tall.
I always read this brilliant thread, haven't posted very often but thought you may like to see my two tone dahlia.
My tomatoes have been brilliant this year. I sowed the seeds in January in a heated Propagator and I have been picking them since July. I have bottled a lot of them and have got 15 bottles of tomatoes. They have all been grown in a greenhouse in Autopots so they are watered automatically and I have fed them two or three times a week. It has got to be the best crop I have had.
