Good morning all 

Bit of a puzzlement this morning - what am I best to do?  Now that Brumbull's resurrected the Morning Forkers shall I post on there and let this thread die a death?  I only started it because I was asked to.

KEF that does sound truly appalling!  

I'm going to doze on the sofa - OH is watching The Office - I'll prop my eyes open but I'll be falling asleep  - see you in the morning folks - sweet dreams

Then I'd sow tomato seeds indoor on a windowsill late February in a small covered propagator, potting on as necessary and putting into the greenhouse when temperatures in the greenhouse can be relied not to drop much below 18C,

Lots of info here

You can sow Broadbean Aquadulce Claudia now in the open ground - they will overwinter without protection and you'll be harvesting delicious broad beans in May and June 

Serious! Really

Hello Petal - that sounds a beautiful drive to work - part of mine is beautiful too - there are particular alder trees that I look forward to seeing, particularly in the spring as their buds are opening and in the autumn as their colours change - when I'm retired I think I'm going to have to make special trips to see them

I tried growing a canna for the first time this year - a deep black-red one as a centre-piece for a tub on our west-facing front porch - it wasn't at all happy and didn't do well.
