first seeds sown ...

Posted: 16/03/2014 at 21:12

Looking really good djjj. I wouldn't worry too much about the temperature at the moment. I do the same as chicky. I always think that the condensation is a good thing when you want things to germinate as it's getting warm and moist there. It's when they are up that you have to think a lot more about ventilation.

Best of luck with your first sowings, I only started a couple of years ago and it never ceases to amaze me how many plants you can get from sowing seeds

Oh eck

Eggs, and cooking with them

Just got some chickens, I'm thinking  pickled eggs for the surplus

Which annual and perenial seedlings should be 'pinched out'?

Posted: 15/03/2014 at 23:49

I tend to pinch out most of plants just to see what happens and I don't think I've killed any of them yet by doing this.

Wallflowers, snapdragons, night scented stock, cosmos are some that have done well.

I think as long as the plant has good healthy growth and they have a good root system they should respond well

 

What plants go well with lupins?

Harden them off slowly and they should be fine to plant out,mine are putting on a lot of growth.  They are hardy so once used to the outdoors they will be fine. Lovely plants

foxgloves in pots

It's probably the best time to do this,they only have a shallow root system. Don't know about the effect on flowering, but one to a pot sounds like a good idea

stopping my cats pooing and weeing on my flower beds

I don't normally get involved in the cat problem discussion cotty100 but on this occassion I will. I do think you are being antagonistic.

The idea of having a blanket legal ban on keeping cats as purely housecats is socially unacceptable..........at least in my world it is.

There is a world of difference between a cat and snakes,spiders and the burmese python!  I know it's a snake. Just like they are different from hamsters, rabbits etc.  You could argue that keeping birds in an aviary is cruel? I think birds are meant to be free and fly!

Oh dear, someone was late for work because they had to deal with a mouse, big deal.

 

Pallets

Well done Gardengirl in bashing those nails out  When we built a fence super long screws were the answer.

Free pallets are great, you can do so much out of them. Although they  do get the fire started as well Busybee
