Talkback: Creeping buttercup

I still hate creeping buttercup. With the warmer weather and the rain, I'm seeing loads of it emerge once again. I do try digging it out but it has really tough root system so I do resort to painting weedkiller on it.

If it looks like this, I would try and get rid of it as soon as possible

Grew some of the alba and the peach types last year, survived the winter in the ground. Planted them in different spots but mainly stuck to partial shade areas, I have a couple under some beech trees too.

Coming on a treat now, really looking forward to seeing them flower

Hope so

worth buying primroses now?

Think thats a good price for them if you don't have any.  I have loads of the native type, they seem to grow like weeds here. Putting on a good show here at the moment. Some really lovely colours happening.

Talkback: Nesting robins

Not of nesting, but last year there were 3 differant robins in the garden

Today I feel so happy....

I spent a couple of happy hours seed sowing today

I love grape hyacinths Flo, as I can never remember exactly where they are, so when they come up it's always a surprise.

 

Seeds are up

The verbena seeds that I sowed mid January, are at last growing I had almost given up hope but thought I'd leave them be, just in case

I know what you mean nut, haven't done any sowing for weeks but managed to a do bit today.

Sweat pea -disaster

I do like sweetpeas, I'd be tempted to have another go now that it's warmer and get some already grown in. Just sowed climbing nasturtians today, really easy to grow and I love the seeds

Hi nut, yes they have are  doing really well, one of the stronger seedlings that I have. Sowed them in the frame on 18th March, probably germinated in about 2 weeks
