If you're talking about pelargoniums, I find they take most of the year round.  Should be fine now.

Ah, that's ok then ....... I was perplexed by planting aubergines in the winter in the UK LOL! 

I've not grown a lot of them, so am by no means an expert - let's see what others think as they come along (I'm up early this morning).

Hi Chrystal

Those don't look like the leaves of aubergines I've grown in the past - my plants had darker more toothed leaves.

Whereabouts are you?  I wouldn't expect aubergines to be growing outside in the UK at this time of year ..... but it's been a funny season

Oooh that's full of possibilities!!!  If you can dig that hole I bet you can turn it into a pond without out builder ....... probably not as sophisticated a pond as a builder would make, but .......

Great news Clari    I hope the next lot comes on time ... but it's really not good enough - you should still speak to the auditors. 


Who's having pancakes today?

Half of Lavender Dying

Zooming in on the compost in the pot it looks quite fibrous - lavender prefers a very free draining gritty soil-based growing medium so repotting it might make it happier

Good morning all   G'day Pat

Glad you found us - the wind's died down thank goodness - hope everyone's ok and not too much damage done.
