Dove - I can never make up my mind whether to procrastinate or not....

Tina - I suppose text speak is the new shorthand!

Yes pg - he's back on Tuesday night 

Good times!

Tina- it's why the spam's so annoying - yesterday's was infuriating as there was tons of it but all on the gadren design topic so it pushed up lots of old threads. Think everyone seemed to get it round it well enough though.

Maud- it could be a lot worse!!!!

Dove- if you're on here later- I saw your query on the sweet pea thread about Cupanis and I've posted a pic of the cream sweetpeas (Cathy) on the Garden Gallery thread if you want to see them.

Took some pix of sweet pea Cathy this morning growing up a wigwam of canes in a pot. Lovely scent.

 These ones are growing up the handrail beside my back door along with a clematis. All quite happy together in the same pot!

Verd - enjoy playing with your new toy....boys eh?   You'll just have to whistle...

KEF- I may consider that! Someone once told me they bought a house and what they liked about the garden was that there was a good, sturdy new fence round it because they had a new dog. When they moved in....the previous owners had taken thefence!

chick- my youngest would want a choc chip muffin tree!

Cold here - 12 degrees - and a bit rainy which wasn't forecast, supposed to be nice today.  Glad I got grass done yesterday. Just put a washing on though

And next year we can blame this year's excessive heat!

I do much the same as Dove and nut, and like Bob, I try and answer a zero reply question if I'm able to but I don't always know the answers! Lots of people seem to just need an answer to a query and don't post regularly but it's nice to encourage new posters wherever possible. Don't leave Zoomer- I think Verdi's right. We're out in our gardens more in the summer and sometimes too tired for much in the evenings - or is that just me!! 

Growing Sweet Peas

I grow Cupani every year Dove and don't do anything different with them to the others I grow. I put a pic recently on the Garden Gallery thread of a little bunch I'd picked. I started mine off indoors this year because of the cold spring but  normally just stick them straight into the  pots they're going to be in outside. I grew Cathy this year which has great scent. Cream coloured but a little muddy looking when you see them up close.
