Hi Fairygirl,

Sorry not to have shared the scones last night,had just posted thread when doorbell went,two friends + teenage offspring who just "happened to be passing " on their way home from a day out.They dropped several hints about the casserole,the best being" we have,nt eaten yet,we thought we would get a takeaway on the way home".

I did feel obliged to offer tea and scones and they ate the lot,husband not pleased as being a diabetic ,scones are one of the few cakes he can eat,will have to make some more,and will save some for you this time!

Hello everyone...

Blue sky and sunshine at the moment,I think the forecast is mixed ttoday,so  no doubt will be in and out of the greenhouse again,The heavy rain yesterday has done everything good and plants seemed to have grown overnight,

Did,nt get out at all yesterday,not even as far as the shed.

6 plants will  provide more than enough tomatoes for two people,Cant you grow the surplus plants outside?you can always make tomato sauce/soup with any glut,both freeze well.

Another plant identifier please....

The way to tell Spanish bluebells from English bluebells is that an English bluebell has all the flowers on one side of the stem the Spanish bluebell has flowers round the stem.From your photo I would say Spanish Bluebell.

Oh dear Palaisglide you have obviously had a bad BBQ experience,we don,t have one very often,but the food is always cooked through,and never sits in the sun.

I think the worst oily smell is that disgusting aroma from vans selling doughnuts or donuts as they now say,That brings me to another rant,I hate the way words have become "Americanised"

Depends on what you want to grow,whether you buy heating etc,I just use bubble wrap in one greenhouse to insulate in winter,in the other where we have more tender plants we do have a heater.

What's the weather like in your area?

Heavy showers of rain with occasional brighter spells,glad I managed to plant most things out over the  weekend,which was warm and sunny for all three days.

Totally agree,they look fine,they have a habit of looking distorted but will be fine,and reward you with a mass of lasting colour.

Plant out into modules asap,and go easy on the watering!
