I had been pottering in the garden, weeding the Shady Bank and planting out aquilegias etc ... but the neighbour behind is having a new flat roof on an extension, and today was the day for the gas burner etc ......... I decided to find something else to do so phoned Norfolk Herbs - their website said the herbs I wanted were out of stock, but phone for availablility of small quantities ......... Hurrah!  they had larger plants of French tarragon and several varieties of rosemary available for collection only ......... so I've just been out there ... a nice pot of French tarragon, a Rosemary officinalis and Rosemary 'Blue Lagoon' ... £9 the three ......... and a drive out in the glorious blossom-filled Norfolk countryside.

..... Was disappointed for Wonky about the GH but sounds as though all's well that ends well thanks to Dove.




 I had a late phone call yesterday evening ...it woke me up   ...... but it was good news    ... Papa Womble is going to fund the other half of the greenhouse - let's hope it's the beginning of a spell of good luck for Wonky 


Glad you're back in communcation with the rest of the world BL

What's wrong with my Stock seedlings?

Posted: 31/03/2017 at 13:09

I'm confused - have I misunderstood something    when I enlarge the picture there looks to be green algae on the surface of the compost ... were they really only potted on last week?


The compost also looks very wet and soggy.  I'd cut back on the watering and give them more sunlight.

I'm back ....... at last ............. how was I to know it was the  GC's 50th birthday and they were having a huge promotion and queues went back as far as the pet store!!! I suppose I could've read the emails they sent me


 All I wanted was a birthday card .... ok, I picked up some seeds and FB&B while I was in the queue, but even so ...... what a way to spend half a morning ........... at least it was drizzling outside while I was there so I didn't miss gardening time ...... it's drying up now so I'll be out there in a minute ...................

Hosta ... A few years ago I started to drink at least 3 litres of water a day - every day  ... improved my health and wellbeing no end ...... and no, I don't have to get up in the night very often ......... the more dilute the pee, the less it irritates the bladder.  


And besides, you can always keep watering the compost heap ............. it's not as if you're overlooked where you are 


My first wash load is still rinsing ........... better get up to the GC for a birthday card   and then get back here and out into the garden .............. it's already 17C in the shade and climbing .............
