I hope wonky is feeling better this morning.

I woke up cold. Ive put the heating on early. No hubby to pinch heat from, he's away all week.

I must make an appointment for a dentist. Trouble is my good one died, and his replacement was dire. I spent two hours in the chair for a root canal filling, screamed the place down when he found a nerve he hadnt numbed, and came out with tears running down my face, to find a full waiting room staring at me in horror. I then got an abscess that kicked off while I was away in Australia. I ended up trawling the pharmacies for the strongest pain killers I could buy. Surprisingly, I haven't been back.

Last plot help please

Liz, don't worry about how many threads you start, or how many times you ask for help. We all try to help beginners as much as we can. We were all beginners once.

The best onions from seed.....

I grew Kelsae the year I couldn't get mammoth. I didnt think that they kept well.

I prefer Robinsons mammoth and red mammoth, which I sowed today.

Bedfordshire champion produce small bulbs which keep well.

I wasn't keen on red baron, I grew last year because I couldn't get red mammoth.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I planted Mammoth   red and white onion seeds today. I also started to bring bulb pots onto the patio. I have a problem in that the biggest pots need a barrow, but its going to sink in the grass as its so soggy.

Maybe we could get you up here for a weekend, Verdun? Barnsdale, Chatsworth, Bluebell arboretum, lots to see up here. You might need your thermal underwear though.

Is it too wet.? I allow that sort to get pretty dry and then give them a soak. Let it drain Off so they do not stand in water.
