I find aquilegias sown as late as March will germinate ok. If not, left to August and you have little seedlings to overwinter.

My psychic powers are failing me, tonight. It must be because I dropped the crystal ball at work.

Check for scale insects as well. They can be removed with a piece of cotton wool soaked in meths.

Well the shooting in Cairo yesterday, and this in Hurghada, will finish the remnants of the Egyptian tourist business. 

I hope you are both safe, Hostafan.

I always use about 100g per square metre of blood fish and bone., for growing veg. I also add calcified seaweed if it is acidic, to grow cabbage family or onions.

Comfrey. Can we juice it and drink it?

Posted: 07/01/2016 at 19:52

Comfrey is great for making ointment for external use, but it will damage your liver if you swallow it. Dont do it , Edd. We need you here, and so does your OH and children.

Interesting about  matriarchal dna, Pat.  At my aunty Mo,s 80th birthday party, great aunt Sylvia (now 100) produced a photo of her mother, my great grandmother. Everyone remarked on how much my niece looked like her greatgreat grandmother, born 100 years apart., all female line.  I am told that personality traits wise, I am like my grandmother, my niece is like me, and nurture has nothing to do with it, as my grandmother did not bring me up, and I have little regular contact with my niece.
