Which subjects............

Posted: 11/01/2016 at 19:45

I don't think any topic should be taboo including confronting a member who started a thread with the intention of causing trouble.

It's called flame batting and in contributing to this thread we are flamming or flammers.

I like this forum too which I guess is why I am posting this. Generally I'm pretty good and letting stuff pass by me, after all the reason why we are all here and have in common is we love gardening. On this occassion I thought that what was posted couldn't be left unchallenged

I know that is not going to be my most appreciated post. But even if you have an opposing view, think mine is wrong. It's worth having a look at this especially if you use a lot of forums.

I would hope that nasty pms were reported and would expect that the Mods would  suspend their accounts and feedback to that person who was on the recieving end.

 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Still no gardening, still raining

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.

I can see a couple of bulbs coming through and the strawberry plant in the corner. The rest looks like weeds.

I'm very pleased with my cuttings taken last year, it's been so mild they haven't stopped growing

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
