Apple's iPhone. New models out this week. Now, I have the iPhone 5, great piece of kit etc. Even makes phone calls Butttttt........... the only difference I see between my phone and the new iPhone 5s is that with the new one, you can use finger-print recognition.......and that's just about the only difference....... 

It seems Steve Jobs took his alien tech with him. Sad really.

Coleus 'Chocolate Splash'

I bought two of these plants from a local garden centre a few months ago. They have been glorious all Summer I want to try and over winter them indoors. My 13 year old daughter has a Salvia growing in the South-facing living room which is now into it's 3rd year, we call it "Meg's Impossible Plant", so it got me thinking that maybe I can do the same with the Coleus? I have googled, but I don't know if they are annual, biennial or perrenial  Can anyone shed some light on this please? Am I doomed to failure?

allium seeds !

There's a giant variety of allium (can't remember the name) that takes FIVE YEARS to flower from seed  It's stunning though, so for me it's well worth it
