Watching seedlings grow 2016

Posted: 13/04/2016 at 19:21

I wish I liked tomatos Bob, my partner does so he grows a couple of plants. I saw a picture of a tumbling sort and thought it looked quite decorative.

I'm a bit behind you Sparkles and Kitty, I'm waiting for mine to get big enough to prick out. Already thinking about space.

I love purple too, I'm trying to change the colour palette this year. Mainly to reduce the number of white plants in the hot bed. Purple is going to be a strong theme

Sowed some varigated honesty and some seeds which I think are some sort of helenium collected from an open garden a while ago.

Totally agree Tetley I don't consider my last comment to be spiteful.

Still no leaflet here.........I learnt that England has had theirs first, Wales and Scotland to follow.

I was talking to colleagues the other day and I was surprised how many people haven't decided which way they will vote. I think there is such a level of mistrust with what any politicians are saying

I've read with interest the stuff of the trade agreement, exit timescales if we were too leave. Things that I know very little about. I've also had more conversations about it than I thought  I would, so I guess this thread has opened my ears and brain to other information. But certainly not too taxing  for me 

On the other side of this, I saw the headline in the hateful Daily Mail about muslim ghettos and I thought that this would be here and it was. I think it's gone now though. So it's easy for hatred and biogotry to spill out in discussions like this. Bound to happen. So these sort of attitudes aren't welcome to my ears but I accept that people hold though. This forum is just a reflection of everday people.

When we know the outcome, someone could start a monthly debate thread maybe?

Possible subjects could be Does God Exist? Is Donald Trump the new Hitler? Is it morally right for junior doctors to take strike action?

Bound to be consensus with like minded people amongst that lot
