I'm partial to a bit of honeycomb myself, although not at the moment, had the first twinge of toothache today....not good. Tend not to go the dentist up to the point I have to, at least I'm  registered with a NHS dentist.

Doesn't sound critical to me Dove

Hello everyone, not much done today......damp and dreary, that's my excuse. Still got bulbs to go in but maybe tomorrow.

Had my daily fix of the dancing, not sure if anyone else watches it, but really like it takes two, so light hearted and good fun.

Bad news about the car Dove, I hate it when I see any flashing lights, just means money. Thought my car had it a while ago it turned out it just needed a service, which was a relief. Bless it, I think it was the first service it had in many years! Not been driving that long and although I don't go very far, I would hate to be without it.

Love planting spring bulbs Fg, it will be worth it when you see them in the Spring, then I think I always want more

It's not just you waterbutts, I'm not that much of a chatter on here (can't think quick enough!) but the information and the learning I get here is well worth putting up with the stirrers. I like being able to share what I have learnt with others too and it's great to  look at everyones pictures of their gardens and wildlife. The dynamics have changed but change again they will

Best wishes

Think you are very lucky skyrunner, how great to have hedgehogs in your garden. Not ever seen one here but have gaps under fence and hedge and lots of leaves and some quiet  spots just in case

What new flower seeds are you going to grow in 2014

Don't know how they would go with the veg patch fidget, rudebekias do well here as cut flowers, they are still going

 Sorry KEF................... but good result


seed share

Thanks nut, I'm easy also on the amount of seeds, like others I don't mind if I just get a few plants. I'm only collecting my own seeds properly this year so don't have a huge amount of these. I do have a lot of packets of seeds but I do need to have a look.

The false sunflowers can grow quite a bit... I have it in the ground here and it's a spreader. It grows fast and should flower in the first would probably need a large pot. It flowers mid to late summer and when in flower the bees and butterflies love it.

Zoomer, I'd be interested in the calendulas, is there anything in particular that you are looking for?

Just seen the pic at the top of this page no idea what's that all about!

Happy with the result of the dancing, Vanessa is out, great, can't bear that woman.

No gardening done here apart from a quick nip out early to see how the seeds are doing. The new temporary greenhouse has hit some technical problems, it's leaking, but the cats have found a dry part and taken up residence
