I'm growing the blue bedder type for the first time this year. They have germinated well. I'll bear that it mind when pricking out, thanks Tanglewood Twitch

Is reducing your hours an option luvmegarden? I work part time now, 2 days a week and I have small business on the side. I don't ever want to go back to working full time no matter what job anymore. As long as I can manage to pay the bills I'm going to carry on the way I am.

I can't afford holidays, don't do takeaways,  I drive old cars, I very rarely buy anything new. I don't have much cash but I can honestly say I don't want for anything.

Life is too short to be stuck doing something that causes you pain, long term stress damages us. Follow your dream in anyway you can

I like the sound of the WRAG training course Jengil

I did go out with the intention of doing a few things but when I got out there, wasn't feeling it. Too cold and it's since started raining So I'm in for the afternoon with some DVDs. Some house plant watering to do as well

Don't know anything about makes, sorry. I picked mine up as a job lot of tools in an auction. It's got a long handle which I like as I can stand on my log in the centre of the big bed and do most of it from there.

I don't have a dog at the moment  as I'm not sure I could handle the committment. Maybe in the future, I like labs and German Shepherds too........ well I like all dogs

My cats will drink dirty rain water outside but inside they like theirs served cold in a pint glass!

Those little flowers pack a punch, they are meant to be good for moths too Mine were always a bit of hit and miss, but last year worked a treat.

I've not long sown my first night scented stock Hefty, going to try and do repeat sowings so the fragrance lasts longer. OH has got a living wall idea going on near the back door might try and get some to take there just so it's easy to smell them

Had lots of success with fresh seed sown direct last year
