It may sound a bit extreme, but you need another large male animal to mark the spot with urine    

What do I do with these seedlings?

They've arrived 

Along with a 220 page Chilltern Seed Catalogue with over 34 different varieties of cyclamen and 53 aquilegia

Andy, you're making me feel guilty - I need to sort out replanting the big tub on the front porch   Maybe I'll have time to pop into the GC at lunchtime ....

Have a good day folks

Good morning Chicky - yep, brolly in car - although that wouldn't have been any good against the hailstorm I drove through yesterday 

I love Japanese anemones - have a patch of pink ones (can't remember which and am too comfy on the sofa to reach my notebook).  The plan was for them to brighten  the corner under the biggest ash tree but they're taking their time to get really established - I'll probably regret saying that in a year or three 

Good Evening FORKERS

Hello folks  home, fed, watered and also cut OH's hair - now I'm almost asleep - why does work make me tired?  You don't have to answer that  .............

Well, it all depends where you want to put it - on a sunny windowsill or a shady corner?  Tell us a bit more ....

Good morning Mrs G 

OH has just set off - he's doing an early shift opening up the farm shop - he'll be back mid morning so I can leave him in charge of hanging washing out as I've got work beckoning (but not for much longer) !!!  I'm here in a snuggly dressing gown sipping black coffee - in a minute I'll head for the shower then off to work - I'd rather be planting garlic 

NB must remember to buy garlic for planting - which shall I get? Hardneck or softneck - never grown it before - used to live near a garlic farm 

Edited to add:  After reading this think I'll go for hardneck.

Horse manure advice

Yes, add it to compost bin, or stack it in a heap to mature.  Fabulous stuff.  When it's well-rotted you could use it to mulch around fruit bushes (making sure it doesn't touch the stems) as well as use it in a bean trench.

Seem to spend our tv time watching QI - OH says they're repeats, but as I usually doze off at least half of them haven't been seen before
