Good luck - let us know how things are going 

I used to keep 4711 cologne in the car as sometimes my work involved going into a house which was 'in need of a deep clean' - a good cologne was very nice to dab on your wrists and on a tissue to stick down your front etc and make yourself feel fresher and cleaner until you could get into a shower.

Morning Alan 

Surely they'll flower even if not pollinated - it's berries that they won't produce if not pollinated

Punkdoc - you could take my car to get its tyres checked for me   Think it needs a new one on the back - I've got better things to do than sit and wait while they do that, but you could take a gardening magazine to pass the time ....

Does it have any buds at all?

Have a look on here - there's a very useful search facility down the left hand side of the site

Oh Pam, wouldn't that be lovely - some dry ground that we  could walk on   

I was lying in bed last night thinking about the garlic that OH planted - have we had a cold enough snap for it to divide, or are we going to get huge single bulbs? 

Chicky, yes I'll share - at the moment I'm torn between practicality - more seed trays and seed compost - or allowing myself to be seduced by a plant? 

Loads of bulbs not in the ground

Yes, just as annie8 has said, pop them in the ground or in some pots, tubs, buckets of compost - you'll get something and they'll stay alive and then you can plant them out in the summer.

And hope you're feeling on top of the world again soon

Good morning all   I've been out for my stomp - the birds are singing so loudly, they must think it's spring 

Busy day today - have to take the car to get tyres checked and then a trip to the GC near where I used to work - I've discovered I've got some vouchers for it that run out today!!!

Then I need to get something to cook with the whiting I bought yesterday - think we'll have Chinese leaves and ginger etc with noodles
