I've just had an indulgent brekkie - grilled local bacon in a toasted cheesey roll, and a big mug of coffee - I suppose I ought to get dressed at some stage this morning - I'm feeling a bit decadent

Thought so - I planted a Black Beauty in the bed outside my window at work, but the window replacement men stomped all over it, despite my having pointed it out to them - I suppose it may survive - if someone pulls the weeds out in that bed now that I've gone!!! 

Talkback: How to grow hawthorn from seed

Posted: 30/11/2013 at 07:41

Hawthorns have just the one seed in each berry. 

Can you show us a photo of the seeds you have, and the plant with a closeup of it's leaves if possible?

Morning Stacey - we've got a glorious sunrise at the moment, pink sunlight streaming in through the windows.


What can be killing off my plants?

Posted: 30/11/2013 at 07:27

Rosemary and many other herbs are mediterranean plants that may well have suffered because of soggy conditions.

There are all sorts of conditions that will kill a potted conifer off, including under or over watering.

Cosmos die down in the winter.   

Houttuynia cordata are deciduous shrubby plants that lose their leaves and die right down in the winter.

With the greatest of respect, I'm wondering if we might not be panicking a little bit here?

Good morning KEF and anyone else who's up this morning.  

I took a while to get off to sleep and heard the news from Glasgow - am hoping friends are ok - I'm sure they are, they have little ones, unlikely to have been out on a Friday evening, but everyone is somebody's loved one

Hello Chicky - certainly not too early for wine - there's curry and a bottle of Gewurtztraminer open here

Kef, is that the Black Lace or the Black Beauty?

Archie - go round all the car boot sales in your area this weekend - you'll probably get the chance to buy them back
