Strangely - Donich managed to avoid any real rain today when I was on it, just some hail and sleet so the waterproofs weren't really needed. There were some big clouds gathering on the summit when I was half way down though.

Tomato seeds

I've used those pots for bulbs Kitty - they're ideal although they don't last long because they're a bit flimsy. Excellent size for a little greenhouse for growing toms though

Can't help you with the turf Tom, but you'll get seed suitable for shade at any garden centre.

If the garden's very shady though, grass will tend to struggle. The trees add a bit more of a problem as they take a lot of moisture and nutrients from the soil - all things that grass needs to look at it's best. If you really want to have grass there, you may find it takes quite a bit of effort to keep it looking good.

Please ID these shrubs for a novice

No 2 might be the spring flowering white Spirea, but it's not close enough to get a good look.

Agree with nut about the others and 4 looks familiar. Think it's the same one someone else needs ID on but it won't come to me. 

Might be clearer on your other link - I'll try having a look at that

Had a look but it's actually smaller than some of the other pix  

Maybe it just doesn't like it....

Sadly - the word courtesy seems to be absent from a lot of people's vocabulary nowadays....

I thought of that T'bird - but I've never had to alter any of the pix I've  taken - my camera seems to have them at a suitable size for this site without any fiddling about by me. 

Just as well - 'cos I don't know how to do that!

I'll give you a wave T'bird 

It's only difficult on certain bits of the A82. I actually find the worst drivers are the ones in cars who insist on driving at 40 when they can safely drive at 60, which is the speed limit for most of that road. Then when you get a straight bit to overtake, there's always someone coming the other way!  Of course, we also get a lot of the opposite kind who overtake at inappropriate points and then cut in....

I've never really measured what I put on hollie 

I'd reckon a scant handful should cover a two or three square feet I think. 

I have quite small hands....
