As it's the first day of Spring which symbolises new beginnings and a whole new growing year , I vote we all put our differences behind us and get on with the job in hand.

After all, we're all singing from the same hymn sheet aren't we ? Our love of of all things growing.

Yes Gary - it's a paper disk that you put in the basket. Tried them as an experiment but really taken with them. They are doing well so I got some more. I will post updates on them.

Geoff - feeding chickens maybe ?

Morning everyone  My - you were all very busy last night.

Gary - those seed disks. They are planted directly into a hanging basket . No transferring needed. .

Poor you Fig - hope you're not too badly bruised and hope all goes well with Dad, Bunny.

Morning Glyn, Pam and Derek.

First day of Spring. Well it's grey and murky here .As long as it doesn't rain . The water feature is getting karchered today and I need to hoe new border where OH has been trampling over it . Other than that, not a lot planned except to say my dibber may come out today. Cosmos seeds need pricking out and I've got some more to do.

There seems to be a civil war going on.

Bjay, I planted mine up and covered with cling film and left them in dining room by the patio windows. They germinated after about 2 weeks so I moved them into the conservatory and took the film off . I put the heating on low during the chilly nights. Is there anywhere you could put them in the house near a window until the weather warms up ?

Afties  No snow here either thank goodness. Still cold outside though. Hard to believe it's the first day of Spring tomorrow . I always thought it was the 21st of March.

Good haul there Bjay .  Jo , I'm seriously considering this online shopping lark - you and Gary seem to be quite taken with it.

I need an extension. Babies everywhere.

Thank you very much !
