Just love Obama telling Trump to 'stop whining'. It points up Trump as exactly what he is; a spoilt rich boy with an inflated ego and sense of entitlement.

Good morning all 

Special ((hugs)) for Hosta. 

DD Have a lovely time with Charlie. You'll be fine exploring and adventuring together. I can remember the time when I had so little self confidence that I couldn't go into a supermarket that I'd not been in before without having a panic attack. You'd be amazed at the things I've done since including staying in various parts of France (including Paris) with only very rudimentary schoolgirl French and travelling around Italy with no Italian at all! have a great time

Hi Margw 

Pinch the growing tips out, pot them up individually, give them a cane each and put them in a cold greenhouse or frost free cold frame for the winter.  Ordinarily they'd be fine outside for the winter, but as they've been indoors they'll be a bit tender so protect them from the frost.

Hello folks - we're back 

Had a lovely lunch (nachos, cheese, guacamole and salsa) in an arts centre down in North Suffolk - wandered around the little market town (close to where I used to live a very long time ago) in the sunshine, did some food shopping and dawdled home.  

Now it's piddling down, the heating is on and chicken thighs, chorizo, red onions, peppers and tomatoes are in the oven with some olive oil and smoked paprika to help them along - OH is in the studio and supper should be ready in about half an hour ...

Now I'll find out what you lot have been up to this afternoon ............ 

Pot up penstemon cuttings now?

Mine had little white roots just appearing at the bottom of the pot, so I potted them up individually yesterday

.....  Finally overlay the existing liner with a new one.  Absolutely no point in removing the existing one.

See original post

 ... other than to get rid of the 'grass roots' which, having penetrated the first liner will probably penetrate the new one

Yes, plant up some of the baby 'spiders' -  detach them from the parent plant leaving a longish stem and float the spiders in some water - they'll send out roots and then you can pot them up.

Hello again - out of the dentist's by 11.10 -  I'd parked at John Lewis so bought some wool for a jumper for Wonky and got my parking ticket stamped so that only cost me £1 - now I'm just drinking a coffee and waiting for OH to change his shoes then we're off out for the day ... see you later folks 

Planting now

I'd be perfectly happy planting most of those now as long as the soil's not waterlogged.

What sort of cyclamen?
