Gardeners World - not back for 4 weeks!

Unfortunately Shrinking Violet, I think you are right, it will make no difference, and no 30 mins each week isn't to much to ask

Gardeners World - not back for 4 weeks!

I agree, very disappointing that it won't be on for 4 weeks. It's only a 30 mins slot each week.

I'm not a sport lover- looks like I won't be watching much TV for a while- but I will be still paying my license fee


How long do Lupins live?

Thanks Geoff for the info- may well it give it a try myself.

I inherited my purple one, but it's not looking as good as it was last year,but that might be down to the weather. Got some seeds on the go, so my thinking is if it doesn't work I'll have new plants for next year anyway

Geoff- When did you divide your lupin? I'm thinking of doing the same to a large purple one that I have.

Thanks Alina, always like to learn new things

Is it wild phlox?

Dovefromabove, I got mine from seedaholic via ebay. I was very impressed with the cost, their speed of delivery, information & most importantly how well the seeds germinated. Like I said I didn't even read the sowing instructions and they still came up. I've got loads of them- the white variety. Good luck with yours. Brilliant advice about the seeds too.

When would be the best time to plant them out?

Robot- I thought I could tell he was a brilliant dog. The rescues & strays are always the best, so loyal and great friends. Sounds like you found each other
