  There's three seeds in each pot Obelixx, and they're only very little pots really.  


I shall be planting them out in clumps of three, as per Monty's system.  Got to give them a bit of space. 


I heard a radio interview a few weeks ago about that POW who left  the money to the villagers who befriended him.  Lovely

Hi


There's some advice on this earlier thread http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/plants/how-should-i-shape-my-pittosporum/4416.html/ 


Don't know if it helps

Evening all. 


Gosh, hasn't it been lovely and peaceful on the Forum today?


See original post

 Are you casting aspersions? Just 'cos I've been out all day 


But look what happened while I was gone ...

Do you mean you need to change your email address on this forum?  


Go to your name in the top right corner, click on the round flower logo, then click on My Settings, then Personal Settings.

Just had such a laugh ....  OH listening to the Radio News heard that '...Dame Vera Lynn's 100th birthday celebrations have been hampered by Paul Weller!' * 


As he said, 'What's he up to now?' 




*poor weather!  Duh!

GWRS -  it's Gardener's Question Time - the Radio  4 gardening programme - brilliant.  And I get to submit a question ...   I was in the audience once before, a very long time ago - when I was fifteen!

Obelixx   is it the paint?  I know modern paints aren't supposed to be nasty nowadays, but my ex was a builder/decorator and he was once very poorly with headaches and nausea when he'd done a lot of decorating - hope you're feeling better soon. 


I could tell it was spring as I drove south - apart from all the glorious wild cherry blossom (and there really is a lot) there was a field of rape coming into flower and a squidged hedgehog on the road 


Two infallible signs that winter is over, no matte what the weather does.

Glad you like it - my son is moving house and has a large garden pot surplus to requirements - I've put my name on it and this week I'll pop up to the GC again and buy a Kojo-no-mai to plant in it - I feel like treating myself

Hello folks   I'm back from the Suffolk coast - while I was in Aldeburgh we picked up tickets for GQT at Snape next month - son is taking me - he says he'll try to hide any boredom! 


We had a hailstorm in Aldeburgh, and heavy rain on the way back so hopefully my little pond is filling up nicely.  


Hope you've all had a lovely day ....... I shall read back and see what you've been up to
