Becks- at those sort of prices it's very hard resist. 100 crocus  bulbs for £3!  I walked away from the bulbs after my choices were I know they will be there for a while

Flo- Danish is all good as far as I'm concerned

I know what you mean Geoff- but there is always the promise of an Indian Summer still to come

Hi Kate- they've just made an appearance at Wilkos & B&M. Got all for them for a £5. I've got a new woodland bit to start planting and these will do very nicely. They've got daff bulbs as well

Geoff - know what you mean about particular authors, I got sick of Lynda Le Plant after a while. I agree re depth, that's the reason why I like their TV programmes.

Flo- sorry to hear about Blue Boy being AWOL.

Been out for a few "bits" came back with 135  cheap spring bulbs first it's seeds then it's bulbs..............

Not keen on RB- never have been. I think he is promoting  the "abstinence treatment model" i.e. stay off the drugs

No I haven't but you have certainly given me some. I'm still on Jo Nesbo- loved The Snowman but now reading some of  the earlier ones. Will have a look at the Olsen ones when I'm through with Nesbo.

Loved the Millennium trilogy, the orginal Girl with the dragon tattoo film  dubbed (but very well done) was really good.

There's a film " Let the right one in" which is worth a watch- but not the more recent US remake. The orginal I think is Scandanvian, I have got the book somewhere. I do prefer to read the book then watch the films if I can.

I read a couple of novels by Tim Krabbe- The Vanishing.  Dutch author.Very chilling, short novel you can read in one go. Have also been know to read some Japanese books a novel called "Out" was very good and very shocking

£45 I always wait. The 2nd series of Borgen will be shown here sometime this Winter. I'm sure there will be a repeat of The Killling at some point.

BBC4- Saturday nights 9pm  is a great slot- not keen though on Wallander either the Scandanavin or English version so have been giving them a miss.

Meserine- "Killer Instinct" was on a few weeks ago, not for the faint hearted but absolutley riveting. Based on a true story of a French gangster- never heard of him until I watched this.

Like the Scandavian fiction as well

Geoff- I love Danish, I can say thank you - Tak, fluently now after watching Borgen, The Killing and The Bridge.

What exactly does a 'sterile' plant mean ?

Hello, I've been potting mine on gradually into bigger pots.

These are couple of pics of the foxgloves & dephiniums taken about a week ago.

 I planted the foxgloves out now........they were strong and healthy about the same size as others in the garden. The delphs have grown, will see how they big they get before I decide to plant out or over winter. Same goes for the others.

If you decided to over winter them, I would build yourself a cold frame, the shed probably wont have enough light.
