Canadian snow

Great pics Bill, as others have said when it snows in the Uk, we don't seem to be anywhere prepared and the whole country seems to descend into chaos. I don't like it much but it does look beautiful

Seeds I've collected

I use the cheap brown paper money envelopes and am putting them in a dark cool cupboard. First year of proper seed collecting

Hard plants to grow from seed

Posted: 30/10/2013 at 20:43

I always have trouble with delphs and larkspurs, don't think I've ever got a delph seed to germinate, not sure why? 

I grew verbena boneralis this year for the first time and they took an age to germinate, I put them in the fridge, out of the fridge, when I finally ignored them, they did well

hydrangea.when can i move it?

No way an expert, but I'd move it now as the soil is still warm and gives the plant a chance of getting some new roots established before the winter comes in.

getting those plants in before the storm

I'm sure they will come through flowering rose, I love wallflowers, they are so easy to grow from seed. I think you tend to get better plants grown this way. The great thing is that you can collect seeds off them next year and grow some more for free

Strangely I don't find that creepy at all, I think it's rather beautiful. I'd be pleased to find that in my garden

That's a big spider! I'm glad it lives over there. I can only imagine the webs

Good photo, it does look rather big. Is that in the Uk?

Compost Bins & Lovely Rats

Posted: 29/10/2013 at 21:12

I have a darlek type of composter that sits flat the earth, not seen any rats around there, but when I had a rabbit saw a lot of them, they were after the food. I'm an animal lover, but I did put poison down safely and not seen any since

They do breed at an incrediable rate and can get in anywhere.  I have cats now so hopefully they are keeping the population down
