I am glad that you can sing about the rain, I am seriously fed up

@pash2 I do not think you will get any bulbs in your offer. if you are planting in containers and the plants are a good size you should be ok. If they are going in the ground I would use  some slug/snail prevention.

Last year someone suggested a cup of vegetable oil should be placed at soil level and the weevils loved it and he caught lots using it. I was quite intrigued and plan to try it when it stops raining.

Gloucestergirl you will probably not get flowers for a few years growing from seed, I made the same mistake when I started growing from seed, some plants grown from seed take years to mature. There is often no mention of this on the packet .

I would go for bulbs/corms.

I have decided to have another go at stratification, I have put 3 seeds in sand, 3 in water, 3 in compost.

I think Jack did have some problems though.

I have sown more beans, I hope that they will not be resting anywhere.

Thanks for the sympathy

They said it was going to rain today but still dry, I forgot the beans yesterday must go and sow some now.
