What annuals can I sow for summer colour?

Posted: 28/03/2013 at 13:50

Ryan, I've bought lots of seeds from £ land over the years. Nought wrong with them.  Best bargain ever was a couple of years ago - a packet of nasturstiums with 6 different varieties in them.

The only problem being I've got them forever now  No matter how many seed pods I collect. I get more and more each year. Good job I like them.

Aldi's good for seeds as well - got some Nigella for 89p

Has war been declared in my absence ?  Just got back from shopping - no Easter eggs left in our local shopping centre so popped in Asda . BAD MISTAKE ! Every man and his dog was in there with trolleys piled high, plenty of beige and enough food to sustain a small army.  It's open tomorrow . ALL DAY !!!!

Rant over.

I'm off to construct a large piece of cake.

Well done on posting that thread, Geoff.

What Is Going On With Site??

I agree with all the above - I'm not techno- minded at all so don't want to start messing around.

It took me 3 months to post a link.

Dahlias - no matter what I do, they always end up as slug fodder.

Even tried to grow them in pots.

Morning everyone, Bright and sunny here.  Hoping it stays like that. Just checked my coleus and they are well away - first time I've grown them so hoping they are successful. Also hoping that the weather is OK at weekend so OH can finish what's been started in the new border.

Hope all is ok with Oscar. Bjay probally just a cold but best to get him checked over.

Off to shops now as I haven't got enough Easter eggs - hoping there's some left.

I think we should all bombard Daniel with e-mails as to what is going on with the site. Still not receiving e-mails and getting fed up with it now.

what do u think this might be

Alan - looks like a chrysalis of some form to me  - It might a butterfly or a pretty moth.

I could possibly be wrong though but I wouldn't worry about keeping it warm , they usually survive regardless.

Caz - I've tried that as well but not getting any e-maij=ls at all from the site.

I've got that weird path p thing at the bottom of the screen as well.

I can actually see some of my garden now  Seems to be a thaw but it's still snowing now and then.

Everyone seems to have had a productive morning.

Mine consisted of housework

Dove and Caz - get well soon. My sore throat has gone now so don't know what that's all about  Got off quite lightly compared to some of you.

My coleus seeds are up - more space will be required soon .

Becks - great effort  Will there be prizes ?

Sue, that's dreadful - you must be devastated . Try to retrace your steps.

Wondering how my cats would feel about a knitted coat ? Have a feeling I'ld be shredded if I even attempted to put a coat on them but your little doggy looks so cute Flo.

Can you knit a cat coat Bjay ?

Am I the only one that's not receiving any e-mails or is the site still dodgy ?
