Should I accept this?

aym280 - I hope you've got lots of patience - wisteria grown from seed is likely to take 15 years or more to flower.  If you want flowers sooner than that you need a grafted plant - that's why they're more expensive.

If you want inexpensive seed take a look at the seedswap thread on here

Good morning all   G'day Pat

Slightly disturbed night and weird dreams!  OH says that too much chilli and seasalt peanut brittle just before bedtime is to blame ... he's probably right (he usually is but don't tell him).

We don't go overboard with the Valentine's day thing, but I have decorated his place at the breakfast table with chocolate hearts

Bless her, she told them she liked cookery lessons at school (where all she'd done was some assisted stirring of cold mixtures, and spreading butter on bread etc ) so they told her she could seek work in a restaurant kitchen - can you imagine the health and safety risks??????????????????

Hi Emerion

A couple of years ago I bought a TFA Digital Roofed Thermometer from Amazon - think I paid around £19 ish.  It's been in the shade on a north facing wall in the garden since I bought it and it's been totally reliable - I'm pleased with it.

Hope that helps.
