Thanks for all your replies. Spring time it is then. I'm assuming you can clearly see the new growth emerging and then you cut the old growth back?

I have a lovely hardy fushia which has been doing very well. Last year we cut it back at some point, but can't remember when.

It's now stopped flowering and the berry things have gone, Is now the right time to cut it back to the ground?

Thanks

I'm in my first year of collecting seeds, nothing better than sowing them to get more plants

Good tip re the mushroom bags,I've been using the brown prepaid envelopes that come with utility bills

Hi Gardengirl, dug the ragged robin seeds out. I bought the original plant from a market and took the seed pods off once they were dry. I have already sowed some of this seeds this year and have had good results from them.

This my first year of collecting/storing seeds so the seeds I have are in a brown envelope, with dried pods and all. The seeds themselves are tiny  a lot like poppies.

Are you ok to have them like this?

Hi Lyn, thanks for your kind offer. That would be great as I'm developing a woodland part of the garden which I think they would do well in. Are you thinking about any seeds for next year? If your happy to send them I will PM you my address and am happy to pay for the postage

I would be interested in a seed swop, I have enough seeds to fill a couple of polytunnels

I have Poppy seeds,Aquilegia, some white Ragged Robin, white Sweet Rocket and Wall flowers. These have been collected from plants that I have grown from seed.

I also have a large collection of various annuals/perennial seeds,

I'm interested in lungwort, honesty and verberna bonariesnis seeds

On the subject of sprouts, I always thought that I hated them. This stems from my childhood days of preparing Sunday lunch with my Mum and the result being very crunchy al dente sprouts.Not nice

I have since eaten well cooked sprouts and now I love them

Nice sprouts Zippy

Flo- nice avator, I loved Willow the wisp

slugs in the kitchen

I've lived in a very damp property and had slugs comng through the gaps in skirting boards, they are vile disgusting creatures, especially indoors.

I would put some slug killer/pellets down, I coped with them on the carpets and just threw them outside but in the kitchen cupboards................
