Watching the Proms here Fairy. That playing of la Marseillaise was so moving, and the Elgar was magnificent 

Herbs and spices that I can grow in these conditions?

Hi Gardenings

I agree with the others - nothing will grow in a room in a house without a lot of expensive equipment.  Can you get a job working for a garden centre or plant nursery - that way you can learn about growing things and earn a wage at the same time - then maybe one day you can achieve your ambition and have your own gardening business.

Good luck 

help to identify this plant?

I think we've been asked to identify this plant before and  if I remember correctly it was Nutcutlet who knew what it was ... I just wish I could remember what she said ...........................

Was it this?

We find that toads like dark corners behind big pots on our terrace, particularly if we leave half of a broken terracotta pot there for them to crawl under and we make sure we keep the area damp. They also like overgrown areas of our shady borders. Again we leave broken pots in dark damp corners under low growing leafy plants and try not to disturb them by too much weeding and tidying

Create the right conditions in your garden and the toads will find you 

Please don't try to introduce wild animals into your garden (or anywhere else) unless you are a real expert and know and can provide all their environmental and nutritional requirements.

Listening to Nicole Farhi on Desert Island Discs - of course there's a large percentage of French music - very poignant this morning ...

Basically 'difference' ... any sort of difference seems to be enough

Morning Clari ((hugs))

yes it's hard - but to change who we are and what we do is the aim of the terrorists. - we must not change

Yes seedlings or suckers from nearby trees. Pull or dig them out and keep an eye open for a recurrence in future years. If you get them put when they're smaller it'll be easier.

Morning all  ...  So much sadness 

Here in Norfolk the sun is shining and the sky is blue and the garden look beautiful in the low morning sunshine ... 

Today I shall pop up to the farm shop for food for the weekend, then potter in the garden ...
