Can I ask what you plan to use the land for?
Again not sure if they need a cold spell but I see snowdrops sold at GC in pots. I have had a few Spring bulbs sprouting through but I think with the frosts that will slow them down to flower in the Spring.
If it were me I would let them flower in the pots in Spring and then plant them out in the garden "in the green" after they have flowered
I hadn't thought about a prize
Now I really must go and do the dishes, get showered/dressed etc, all the boring stuff ( I do have a strong lazy genetic make up) The hours do fly by on here
Bye for now
I what you mean Ziggy, I'm itching to get seed sowing again, but as said it's not so much the germination indoors it's the growing on that will be problem at this time of year. I did push my luck last Winter as i started sowing snap dragons in Jan indoors and used the coldframes for growing on but last Winter was mild here
Becks Correct........loved this programme
How about Ajuga/Bugle-? low growing, will spread fairly quickly, lovely flowers in the Spring which insects love and think it will generally grow any where
I too miss GW on Fridays, think I saw that Carol Kliens- Cottage Garden is being repeated at some point this Winter- missed it the first time around
Not the Banana Bunch but along the right lines- childrens tv show showed in the 70s and also during the early 80s. Quite surreal/psychadelic, no vocals just music Purple hair
Becks- no idea
I don't have the Lucifer type but the orange ones, I tend not do anything with them, just remove the dead leaves. I'm sure I read that the leaves provide winter protection for insects but I'm sure slugs/snails will be in their as well
thanks Bjay for the tip- I had really good results from their white cosmos seeds this year. Although I have enough seeds to fill a polytunnel of plants
