Hi Spewy, really like the layout. Good advice given about waiting to see what you've got before uprooting everything. I inherited many plants when I first moved here, over time some I've kept and planted around and some have gone

Talkback: Growing Verbena bonariensis from seed

Posted: 22/03/2013 at 17:12

well done gina, I've trying these for the first time this year as well. So far nothing might give up on this batch soon and try again.

I can't even grow from seed!!!!!!!

Don't give up Bagz. if it were me, I wouldn't use cling film maybe use a propagator that gives a firm base to put the tray in and has a plastic hood. Wilkos do a good set for about £3.

I now always water from the base but only enough till I see the soil getting damp.  Little seeds don't need a lot of water, they don't have big root systems so it's easy for them to get wet and sodden and damp off.

Thanks, I thought it was due to a bit of reshuffle of pcs earlier today. Glad it's not a problem at my end. The font is tiny

Last Year 2012

It was definatley a lot warmer last Winter and Spring than this year. I'm an optimist too, I'm hoping the late start to warmer weather means we will get a good Summer. No logic to that but here's hoping. Dont' know MMP, once we get over this cold weather I would be tempted to sow some hardy annuals

Mines a flower garden, trying to develop a county garden, have a very tiny veg plot too

good deal on cold frame???

Posted: 20/03/2013 at 22:10

Hi David, I'm a cold frame fan. Have you thought about making your own? I now have several made out off palletts, off cuts, metal frames from skips, plastic sheeting etc.

You could probably build one for much cheaper, bigger and much sturdier than the one you are thinking off.

I have to say that I have found that some members want to control and moderate this forum themselves when it isn't theirs to do so. I think that the internet forums are really a reflection of true life, be it down the pub, in the office, or in the home. As people we are not going to get on all the time. As long as we all abide by the rules of the forum, we are free to post and say what we want we want.

I think the equilibrium should be shifted/challenged  from time to time, the status quo sometimes can do more harm than good.
