Carrot issue

They will be too warm in the kitchen, hence the lankiness. They probably need more light as well.  Early sowings in a polytunnel with no heat are usually alright, but not the kitchen windowsill.

I think yellow is a Spring colour. . It cheers me up after Winter. Those first tete a tetes are wonderful. I have a few hundred of those as well.

These I can see from the living room window, so I don't have to go out in bad weather, but can still see spring. Summer stuff is further up the garden, The magnolia will flower, and daffs, and when they have gone they are just a green background to the rest of the garden.

Mums birthday is today, tomorrow me, my mum, my two sisters and two of her sisters are going out for lunch. I hope the weathers better than last Wednesday.

Talkback: Growing hellebores

I started with one white and one a dusky pink. The pink one has produced more offspring.  I also have forget me nots everywhere... A testament to the fact that I hoe very little, and leave a lot of self setters when I know what they are.

Strange Soil sucked out in lawn

Posted: 17/02/2014 at 16:18

the moss means you have poor drainage. The worm casts mean that worms are burrowing through your soil, and helping the drainage. It will all look better when it warms up, and you have cut the grass a couple of  times.

If its any consolation, my lawn currently looks like a disaster zone,the birds are taking moss for nests, but it will be fine by summer for when we want to sit on it.
