Good to see this thread back in action......sounds like a great place Pentille and well done potty gardener.

I'm happy because the weather has been beautiful, loads of flowers still going  and my new temporary greenhouse/square polytunnel is still up and getting close to watertight(ish)

Bad news about the laptop Liz, at least he did a back up. I'm no expect but someone once told me that it's the sugar that causes a lot of the damage. Can you take it apart and maybe clean off the mother board? You might be able to make a claim under your contents insurance?

My old phone has been dropped in all sorts of stuff, it was the split larger that nearly killed it..........it works but doesn't make a sound. Can't bear going to mobile phone shops so just carry on with using it.

Hope the frames get to you ok AJK, always a bit wary of courier companies.....not used TNT though

Have a good day everyone

I've grown cleomes for the first time this year, I think I sowed them late spring/early summer,can't really remember now. I found them surprisingly easy to grow and once up they were really strong seedlings/plants. They did really well , watch out for their prickly spines

I've been collecting seed this year, corncockles give a lot of seeds and morning glory plants. Been collecting off echinecias, rudebekkias and cornflowers. Having a go at collecting seeds of cleomes as well. Foxgloves are always good

Think so, the seed pods were nice and dry and the seeds looked healthy. Good idea about getting the long stem varieties, I do like them as cut flowers and the scent. Just out of interest which type have you sown?
