it does not need to much heat  ,and you will need to put the bulb in the dark until it shoots,also  place a bit of charcoal in the vase to keep water clear and they are better to grow if they are a forced bulb but not to much heat is the  thing.

What type of peas.

The best and cheapest peas that we ever and still do grow are a packet of dried peas from the supermarket cost 30p for more than you will need.They produced the best peas for my clay soil and they tasty as any other.

What now for my indoor hyacinths?

as above although I did leave some in a pot from last year(keeping it the shed and brought back in dec) and it flowered but they need to go into the ground to flower well next year or new soil.

one make sure you have drainage and if not flowering and just showing shoots cover with something to keep rain off or remove to shed for awhile.

very wet and windy and yet again the somerset levels gets  a deluge .We have just walked the front of severn beach and wind nearly blew us off our feet and got a soaking to boot.Good job the tide was out! Trees and things blown over and water every where but I thought I saw the sun just now.

It is indeed good for most plants but do watch if you have a dog.It may be obvious that dogs like bones but it is poison to them in this form and besides which you will find your garden dug up.
