What did you learn from your garden this year?

They're definitely better for the waistline than the lollies too Granma....

Aaaa - the ignore button Hosta...a great invention. I've used it more in the last few days than in the entire three plus years I've been on this forum   

What is your weather like? (2)

I'd take a bike Dove ...with a little basket on the front....

Is anyone else planning their spring tulip displays yet?

I have emptied a few large pots now Joyce - plants which had nowhere to go until I finished new beds and borders.....

They're crying out for some lovely displays.....

Stop it!

'The midge' gets everywhere Liri, doesn't it?   

I remember some particularly unpleasant ones at the top of Ben Lawers once. Height is no deterrent - it's just inder 4,000 feet.

I'm fortunate that they don't bother me too much, although they were bad in Glen Nevis a couple of weeks ago - my ex hubby was saying recently that Smidge is quite good. 

It looks a nice hill you were on - I had a little look at it online. You could do that one I was on on Sunday - easiest hill I've ever done, paths all the way and lovely views too.

I've always used them panda - used to live just along the road from them which was dangerous! 

Huge nursery which supplies loads of outlets as well as the public. They'll help you too, if you should need it. 

Phone them first - just to make sure of stock. If you go - you'll end up remortgaging the house and loading up a car with all sorts ....

Don't know how these people sleep at night. Despicable. The fact that you said it was £600 and that was what you had saved, is very telling. He made the job fit what you had. 

I hope you get some kind of resolution Grandad Al. If nothing else, and if they don't come back and sort it to your satisfaction (doubtful ) get some photos on here and you'll get some help with improving the grass so that it is usable for your family.  

Scented geraniums cuttings

Even my dear old Mum could do pelargonium cutting wakeshine - and she could kill plastic plants! You'll be fine.

As the others have said - cut off a decent bit cleanly, remove a few leaves and shove it in

Why did I look at this thread? The girls will have to live on toast for the next month now....

I fancy Princess Irene, Orange Emperor, Professor Rontgen, Brown Sugar and Orange Favourite. Haven't even started on the purples....

The problem with looking at photos is that the colour can be different from reality. Ronaldo is much pinker than it looks in many photos. Some of my orange choices have purply streaks which is why I like them. I don't really like the bi-colour ones, but I don't really care for that in most flowers!
