Glad you're ok Pam and son- of -Dove    Verd - please don't go out unless you absolutely have to or I'll have to fly down there and have a word with you. 

And you don't want that now do you?

Tracey - tights- you're better not knowing, but it was a discussion we had on the Gardening Jokes  thread, or Gardeners' Giggles as I like to think of it. Verdun's confessing to all sorts 

pd - hope it goes well. Dove's right - you ain't seen us- right?  

Damping off

Overcrowding, overwatering and poor ventilation are usually the worst offenders. If you can keep these under control it's easier to avoid damping off. I think you're right Mike about watering as if they're bigger plants. Lots of people use a spray instead of a can to dampen seedlings. That can help to avoid overdoing the water.

Snowdrops have started

They're stunning en masse like that. That's the way to have them Berghill 

 Easy to forget how beautiful these little gems are once summer comes along.

Morning all. Hope everyone in the south west has survived the storms intact. So many people cut off too.  Not getting any better is it?  Come on 'authorities' - stop sitting on your hands and do something to address these floods  

I saw that surfer on tv Pentillie. Yikes!

Hope your mum is better today Dove. Always something to worry about.

The pair of robins visiting here are very busy - they must reckon it's spring even if we're too cautious to believe it. That sounds a bit rude...

Work all day for me too. Take care everyone if you're travelling.

Night KEF.  I'll be going soon too I think. 

Was just wondering - has anyone heard from Bev? (potty gardener) She's not posted for ages. Hope she's ok.

Well, you're always modest Verd. It's your best feature, apart from your lumpy legs of course

I believe they eat them in order Vivien - red, then orange, then yellow. They leave the pinks and whites till last, so unless it's a really cold winter many won't be eaten at all. ' Sorbus Vilmorinii' is another popular variety with pink berries.

You're right pd. Fussy beggars aren't they!
