Quick moan, just been told by the council that later this year we are no longer to allowed to put black bags out for the rubbish. We will have to use clear bags provided by the council  and only be able to put out 2 a fortnight. Those that want to get their garden waste collected will have to register and pay for that service.

Silence can be good bunny, in some ways that's what I  crave

no emails as well as small text

I don't sign up to the emails but the small writing was really getting on my nerves as I could hardly see it.

There is a fix

Neither do I Bunny, but I have radio 4 or 6 on all day which I love. I enjoy BBC4 and loved all the Scandinavian thrillers like the killing, the bridge, borgen as well as the french one Spiral.  Great natural world and science programmes. No rubbish adverts trying to sell you something you don't want/need. I do listen to other commercial radio stations as well but the adverts really get on my nerves as does the ones on itv etc.

At the risk of sounding controversial, I'm starting to think that the license fee is good value for money. No adverts, great radio and some great programmes

Enjoyed GW tonight, too short as always.

As others have said each to own regarding  their preference of presenters. I don't find Monty objectional at all.  I agree marshmello with reference to the path.

For me the only person on the show who isn't in touch with real gardeners is Joe Swift, to me his slot is a complete waste of time, he says exactly the same thing re structure, texture etc and then cherry picks plants that would look good.

The green house looks amazing. I do think it's unfair to pick on this as a cost to the license fee payer though David. I don't watch much TV but if you are going down that line, more credible arguements of waste of money could be said about the awful presenters of other programmes, soap actors, comedies etc. They get paid a lot of money for stuff I don't even watch.

I'm more than happy for Radio 4 for my cost of license fee. GW is a bonus

Seeds are up

Good news bunny

Seeds are up

Sowed some Echinecias weeks ago inside, I thought only 2 had germinated, another 1 popped up today. I find these plants a bit tricky, but will leave alone to see if more will germinate.

Seedlings and 'true leaves'

Was the soil too wet? That's usually the major factor when seedlings collaspe. My first sowings of snapdragons failed completely in Jan due to having no heat and damp soil.
