What are they trialling metformin for, Edd?

I never volunteer for anything like that. First thing I learned in the first year at uni.

Unless it is like concrete, they will grow. Parsnips easily take three weeks to germinate

I am growing magic box from seed. I find that the fancier they are, the shorter lived they are. Mostly one season with me except for standard purpurea.

Don't worry, I can't remember who I sent seed to on the seed swap.

My rosemary has been flowering too.  It's been snowing here today. Too cold to do any gardening.

Edd, were the aquilegia seed from me? They take two years, sow one year, pot on, or plant out, flower second year and get better year after, they last about five years.

I hope you are ok, not heard from you recently.

They look like aquilegias sending up flower spikes. Right on target.

Near Nottingham we have had hail then snow then hail then large flakes of snow again. The boiler has gone out for the second time today.

I think the earliest they would flower is next year. The garden centres have some plants in in the perennial sections, if you want flowers this year.
