Compassion yes....but get real folksThe

OH come on Verdun, I don't believe for one min that you posted in sincerity, your language was sweeping, judgemental and provocative. Flame baiting?? You can't say that you didn't expect this sort of response or did you expect everyone to agree with you?

The only language on here is someone calling you a shit stirrer. If you've had unpleasant pms, report them or screen shot them on here.

It always make me chuckle when I see you trying to control when a thread starts and ends and the need to elicit sympathy from the widder group. Good timing on a Sunday too


snap dragons,

One year I sowed snapdragons indoors around this time and like you most came up. That year the Winter was mild so I potted them on and kept them in closed coldframes. They did really well. It was the year of the snap dragon!

The main challenge you have is space and light. If the weather turns cold and they don't make it you can always sow some more a bit later on


Can I plant these out now?

Always worth potting things on to get bigger before planting out. Although have some foxgloves and jacobs ladder in pots which I plan to plant out when it stops raining.

Root Trainers

I've not ever used them but I've heard that they are good for plants like sweetpeas that like a good root run

I've treated myself ...

I've not used a heated propagater before, what sort of things are you going to sow apart from the peppers and chillis? I have done indoor january sowings of things before, a bit hit and miss but somethings did well. This house doesn't have any deep  windowsills so lack the space here otherwise I might be tempted to sow something

I hope you dont' feel bad pansyface, you asked a simple question about someone that you are concerned about. There's nothing wrong in that, there's is also no difference in you asking if Jo is alright to Garden girl asking about Wonder boy.

Sometimes I find this forum a bit of a forum by comittee where there seems to be some unwritten rule book about what you can say/post to whom But I think it's the  best gardening forum out there and I enjoy the gardening chat I've been here a while too so know there's a few people here who have done the I'm leaving/Don't go/ I'm back thing including a couple who are commenting on this.
