Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 09/04/2016 at 20:15

Good name for it Wintersong. Pricked out some corncockles and some more blue bedder. Having second thoughts about sowing anything else at the moment, I'm already having to shuffle things around a bit.

 

Have you got yours yet?

I only block the one members posts Tetley. I do this because I don't want to see any more of his stirring. Just like if I met the same in life, I wouldn't really want to spend time with or hear what they have to say.

I was minding my own buisness here until the conversation swerved in another direction. Am I not allowed to mention this?  Why is it ok for others to say the same thing? Granted the link was mean spirited and I apologise for that.

Long threads like this are an ideal opportunity to quote things out of context.I didn't say that I never listen to the news, I didn't say that it was all too sad and cruel for me and I did know that there was going to be a referendum, just not the date

The garden was great if a bit chilly, hoping for better weather tomorrow

That's the reason I choose not to see his posts. That's what Verdun does. He causes disharmony

Love annuals that do that aym I have an old packet here so will give them a go

Mouldy compost

This sometimes happen to me. Really annoying, think it's just the soil being just that little bit too wet.  If it's not too bad I scrape it off with my finger but that's probably not the best way Sometimes that works sometimes not.

Hi Primose, maybe think about getting some that do a good job at self seeding and grow relatively quickly.

Ox eyed daisies and yarrow are doing well for me from last years sowings and division. Agree with nut about the creeping buttercup! I think that might be the only plant that I have used topical weedkiller on.

I'm growing a few corncockles too. So easy to grow and I love the seeds, black, round and chunky Mabe not what have you have in mind but candytuff can self seed quite well. I have loads as of yet, un named seedlings in one of my beds, which I'm hoping will turn out to be this. Insects like it

I grow a mixture of stuff too.

It might just be coincidence Hefty but I keep seeing ladybirds on my honesty plants. Looks as if they live there
