Yippee - just noticed that our Forum pictures are back.

They have probably been back for ages and I have just woken up from a deep sleep.

This is cheating as it's not my garden but I took this photo on Tuesday walking in the Forest and it looks so typically November with the low sunshine.

Streptocarpus - Cape Primrose

Yes Philippa, I have already earmarked that leaf and plan to do some propagation in the spring.  Do the flowers just die back and then all you have is leaf for a while?

Why do you want to get rid of them as they look gorgeous. 


Streptocarpus - Cape Primrose

I bought a streptocarpus (I always think this sounds like a throat infection) cape primrose last month and it has been flowering beautifully.  I notice that there are no more buds forming so am guessing that it has a rest period coming up. Is there anyone who has one of these and can advise me about its life cycle.


Average Spend in garden centre

How about getting a job in a garden centre first just to get the feel of it - part time on a Saturday perhaps if you already have a full time job..  One of our forum members posted recently that they had just got a job (managerial in think) in a garden centre and it was his 'dream job' as he loved gardening so much.

Congratulations on getting such a lovely job Dannyboy.  I wish you all the best.  I am sure your enthusiasm will filter through to the rest of your colleagues and on to your customers.

What's left for us to grow?

What is the connection of your forum name Verdun?  I have noticed with the WW1 interest at the moment there was a big battle at Verdun.  Tick me off if I am being too nosy
