Fab show last night, really enjoyed it. So many good dancers this year.

Carole doesn't do anything for me, Jeremy lost any support from me with the cow or was it a horse at the start. No matter and I didn't really know that lady from radio 3 but I'm not keen on her too.

Loved the opening routine by Peter Andre

I remember collecting the pink seed off a plant on the farm last year nut so it wasn't me that sent it to you. It's a lovely big patch of furry leaves at the moment so I am expecting lots of flowers next year.

I'm sure the white seed is what you sent me as I found it in one of your little packets. Germinated really well even though it was over a year old. Didn't think of the cross pollination, oh well will see what happens

Do the insects like them? I try and grow only the plants that are helpful but just liked the look of them and the seeds are easy to collect

I would do the same Voyager, I would have thought they would do well as it's mild at the moment

I've found them really easy to grow from seed Tootles. I've got both deep red and the white ones, well that's what I think they are. Haven't flowered yet but should get a good show next year.

Nut I found the white seeds that you sent me in a cupboard so I sowed them this year but maybe they will be pinky?

I love that and it can be easily converted to a smaller scale. I've got as far as collecting some sticks

Pruning lavender now?

If it's got some old flower buds/stems I would trim them off. If there are new shoots from the woody bits I would leave them alone
