No Jo, I didn't see the Northern Lights

Wonky has just phoned - she's been sent home from work with a temperature and the snots.  She's going to snuggle under the eiderdown and has been told to take tomorrow off too.  Bless her ((hugs)) ............. I hope she didn't give it to me when I visited yesterday

Brrrrr! It's colder here at the moment than it's been for ages, and we've got heavy rain.  I may even put some heating on while I watch Heidi and do some knitting - is it winter yet?

Grass seed

Hi Gothic gardener

The type of grass seed you need depends on the situation of the lawn (sun/shade etc) and what the lawn is going to be used for.

Can you give us more information?

I've found in the past that daffodils sometimes show brown at the tips if the bulbs have been dry earlier just as they're starting into growth.  They are usually much happier if kept on the damp side.

There are quite a few 'chat' threads - it's such a friendly forum that I don't begrudge those at all but I can't keep up with them so only have an occasional 'lurk'!  Most of them are in 'the potting shed' forum topic which is exactly what that is for:

"The potting shed
Venture into the potting shed for garden gossip, topical debate or idle chit-chat."

I'm good at being idle but soon run out of 'chit-chat'!

That's fine Bob - someone has to make the tea
