Morning peeps

So glad that Mighty Atom is being Mighty Dove. I have a group of Magnet which is outshining the others at the moment.

Rotten feeling Pdoc ...hope you are a bit better today

No gardening this weekend, too busy with Chicklets (), but next weekend will be the start of my 2016 season.....must buy some seed compost, and the great tidy up will begin.  Will use the "how to eat an elephant" method

Oooh, a good name for it's offspring, if by any chance I get an interesting cross   and if I recognise the offspring as being offspring ............ if you get what I mean ....



Cornflowers

Edd - the clue is in the name - cornflower - cornfields are cultivated annually and wheat/barley/oats are sown and grow up straight and tall, leaving bare earth around them which is where the cornflowers and other annuals of cultivated soil grow.

This picture of wheat stubble shows how much bare soil there is in a cornfield


 The bare soil between the wheat is where the annual cornfield flowers such as cornflowers and poppies grow.

 

Meadow flowers are usually perennials and grow amongst grass which spreads out and makes a close-growing mat with no bare soil between the grass - they have to be much tougher than the flowers that grow in the cornfields.

Good morning all     G'day Pat

Get well soon Pdoc and Yvie and Panda and anyone else feeling poorly or bruised. 

Pdoc, that's 'cos you went to see the doctor ... you must've caught the bug from someone in the waiting room.

It is - enjoy

Plant it a bit deeper than it was in the pot. It doesn't matter if the bottom couple of inches of the leaves get buried.

Cut the flower spike off and plant it in the garden in a spot that gets the spring sunshine.  Give it a bit of fertiliser and leave it alone this year, it'll die down over the summer so don't forget it's there.  Next spring it'll bloom again, not quite as impressive as in it's first year but still a pretty sight

I'm 20 years younger than you CJWP, but I started gardening with my granny's old gardening book so have lots of out of date information clogging my brain up

Philippa   I have it on good authority that Pdoc is having a beautiful huge Perspex dome erected over the whole area to keep the wind and rain out, there will be rainbows and twinkling stars and shimmering waterfalls  and a beautiful glowing moon - you won't have to experience Yorkshire winter weather

And don't worry, you'll get picked up by the Tardis - it knows its way around
