New Theme Tune for Gardeners' World?

Posted: 06/03/2016 at 08:03

Hosta - I wondered how long it would take you....

It's getting like the cat threads for you! Do you want a pound for the Nigel ones now! 

Window sills

I used food packaging as seed trays and kept the slightly bigger ones to go under them. They're ideal for modern house cills. 

Look messy though - which greatly annoys me...

HELLO FORKERS March 2016 edition

Morning all/afties Pat. Hope the weather settles for you soon.

We have a glorious day here, minus three when I was out feeding the starving hordes, but the sun is rising above the other houses  

Tempting to walk again today but I need to watch the dodgy knees  

I'm with you Dove re Hosta's sleep pattern - or lack of it. I've had years of it but it's improving. If there's an underlying reason that can be sorted (as in my case ) it's easier. The routine is the important factor. Should we give him his alarm call though...it's almost  8   

Grass cuttings on borders?

I only ever compost them. Never cut without a grass box either - don't like them left on the grass 

New Theme Tune for Gardeners' World?

Have they removed the theme tune then?  

Propagators, is it worth it?

I'd agree with cornelly - limited use unless you then have the room for pricking out etc. An unheated one - used at the right time so that you can harden them off - is quite good, but again, unless you have a greenhouse to move the potted on plants into, it's only worth having one or two of them.

I love that pic David. You can never have too many 'bee' shots 

My jaunt today - a date with two Bens ... ...Beinn Bhreac and Ben Reoch 

Scoured snowy bits near the summit of Bhreac

Looking over to the Luss hills on the descent - getting the hand of the timer pix. Pity I hadn't moved the ruckie ...

Bluebells?

Well done Invicta  - good luck with them  

I think I might go for the plugs - and cross my fingers  

Bulbs for wetter soils

Daffs were more than happy at my last house where they grew along the front boundary in the run off from the ponds. It was ever present - the run off I mean 

Bluebells?

Fairy.....harebells are gorgeous and something that reminds me of my childhood. I really should get some for my garden.
Gorse reminds me of Scotland too and the lovely smell of coconut it gives off on a warm day. I liked the wild broom too. Happy days
I do have English bluebells in my garden and I like them

 I also get that feeling from huge masses of gorse.

Not so handy when you go a*** over t** into it though....
