new years resolution

Posted: 28/12/2012 at 21:05

Think my gardening resolution will be to move my seedlings on a lot quicker and maybe not to sow too many Although I think I will try and stick to the first

 

Toads

My pond, I think,should now be called more of a damp ditchalthough it's fairly deep in places. Some steps have been added to aid entry/exit.

I've have scooped out loads of leaves during the Autumn, but am leaving it to its own devices now. Around the pond/ditch is a woodland area that I've been developing so I'm hoping the toads  are tucked up under a wood pile.

I'm not inclinded to do much clearing as others have said i think there is  much life hibernating at the moment.

Lovely newts budlia63, it's great when wildlife finds a way into our gardens

Sam and nutlet- I agree we are bit ahead of the game with seed swopingbut might have a look at the forum when it gets going. I love growing from seed so would be quite happy discussing how my seeds are doing

Hello fraserh31- I'm thinking the seed swop has only just started

Hi Bev, I would be interested in the cowslips and the corncockle seeds. Is there anything particular plants or seeds that you are thinking of for next year?

Apart from loads of commercial packaged seeds, I  have some small mixed sweet william plants and some small mixed sweet rocket plants. Both were sown in the late summer and are being overwintered in my coldframe so might just flower this year 

Does any one have any spare Aubretia seeds that they would be willing to swop?

 Hi bjay

I finally did my christmas shopping today and it went remarkably well. (Im a leave it to the last minuite in everything in life). Got every thing I wanted and the only person that annoyed me was a taxi driver threatening to call the police with the threat of a £75 if I parked in a so called taxi rank I don't do the whole shop thing that well at the best of times

I love Christmas Eve and throughly enjoyed Lady & The tramp, been a very long time since I last saw it and it was great, those old Disney films often bring a tear to my eye.

Plenty of "screaming & shouting" on tonight ( Corrie & Eastenders) to those that enjoy it.

Hi Sam, it looks as if it's been sponsered by Mr Fothegill's. From the advert it looks as if you can sign up for emails reminding you on when to sow to stuff, discounts on their seeds, info on how to sow seeds, but also a dedicated online Seed Club forum

http://www.gardenersworld.com/win/register-for-our-seed-club/108.htmlt

It was the seed sowing forum that interested me

I'm really enjoying the seed swop not done it before. I love sowing from seed and always buy too many seeds (especially when they are cheap) and always sow too many so always have a surplus of young plants. This year I've been collecting seeds of the plants in the garden as well.

This is a great to pass on surplus seeds/plants in exchange for something else

Anyone read the seed club advert in January's edition of GW?

Throughly enjoyed the final episodes of The Killing- didn't see the ending coming at all, but ties in with that will be last of Sarah Lund. Brilliant series.  Borgen will be back  on in January so that will fill the void.

The dancing marathon is about to start, have a good evening everyone
