Having heard OH pulling his hair out after PC workstation crashed, I would always recommend that windows based computers are consigned to the compost heap , and indulge in an Apple product.

20 years of Apples and I've never had a problem,unlike PC's I have to use at work.

Anyway, surely Apples are best for gardeners.

Composting - where am I going wrong pls?

Actually,oldtimer, I think you'll find that a lot of us use recycled beer and wine in this way.

Even recycled tea and coffee the same way.

I encourage all males of the household to water the compost heap rather than traipsing muddy feet up stairs.

Good evening, bitterknitter

What are you studying and where?

seeds or pelleted seeds

Depends.

How many plants do you want?

Have you got a greenhouse to bring seedlings on?

No flowers

Trachelospermum jasminoides  will need a south facing wall in this country for it to flower well. A young plant may still be growing  a framework. If it is in a sunny spot, try a feed of a high potassium food such as phostrogen in the spring.

Busy trying to make a photobook of holiday photos, so stuffed up dinner. We had roast potatoes as a starter, then chicken in cheese and bacon sauce as a main, then a passion fruit mousse courtesy of M&S.  Totally forgot to do veg.

I dont suppose the second glass of wine helped.
