Don't know if it's a blessing or curse, but OH has those same genes. We live a messy life

I don't do direct sowing but the ones that have worked for me in pots sown this time of year  are Calendula, Corncockles, Sweet Williams and Cornflowers

Am I a saddo?

It's sounds like that's the likely outcome, but a sad one. I've not invested any cash here. The landowner has lived here for 20 + years and loves the nature. Nothing to do with me, but I can't help thinking when he has gone, what will become of it all

I use a laptop/PC Runnybeak and I know nothing about the ipad things. From others on here I think there maybe a problem downloading pics/images from phones

A browser is a piece of software that we all use to access the internet. You could be using Internet Explorer, FireFox, there are others. They are the same whether on the phones or computers. 

You're not thick, don't ever think that, you're curious

I'll try Runnybeak. You go into your account settings. On the top right of the page you can see, there's an down ward arrrow. Click on that and you'll see some options. Click on My Settings. This will take you to another page.

On the left hand side, you'll see the faceless T- shirt boy, click on Edit

On this page you will see Change your profile picture. You will have to click Browse. Then you can pick the picture you want. All the avators are small so too big an image wont work.

Do you have a pic in mind and is it on your pc?

Good for you fidget, at least those oak trees are safe. Does you neighbour own the land? Or has he got protected rights?

I'm in a different position to you I live within 40 acres of private land and the land owner is very big on conservation and wildlife

Hiya nut, glad I'm not the only one. I have very dominant untidy genes

Hello, I'm a very untidy person/gardener so probably not the best person to advise. They grow off little corn type structures and over time the corns divide so you get more and then more plants grow from them. They can grow quite quick so next year you will have a much bigger patch of them.

I don't think dead heading would work on these plants, I think once the flowers are over that's it. I tend to leave mine for shelter for insects etc until the Spring and then I remove the dead leaves. I don't think it would hurt to cut them back now. I'm sure someone will be along to give better advice.

I don't think there are any basic questions, we are all learning all of the time

I moved last November so most of my favourites were still above ground fortunately.

I live in the real world but I do get sad when I hear of the loss of habitat, without nature as humans we are nothing.
