Hello SuperShrimper

As Nut says, that's what they do in the first year - then the bulbs will multiply and you'll get more flowers next spring, especially if you take the seedheads off when the flowers die off.

Nut, you won't have to bother about the circumflex any more - I'm going to miss it tho

That's a very good point David - if someone wants to keep an eye on a thread they started, when it gets to around 1000 posts they can start a new one and ask Nora to lock the old one

As I said, for me any Chat-type threads I start are something that I feel I offer to the members to do what they like with (within the rules of the board of course ).  If a thread dies out after a few posts that's fine, and if it runs and runs like the proverbial Mousetrap, that's because of the forum members, not because of me

However, with David K's Sweet Pea threads it's important that they can be identified as his, because we're searching specifically  for his advice

Jimmy - Pat meant that she is in Oz - she'll keep an eye out for the roof of your coldframe and send it back
