Excitable Boy someone recommended fleece to me last year, raises the temperature a little, I used it last August when it was so cold  and it did help.

I have also sown hundreds of Amaranthus how big do they get?

I have just found some dahlia collarette seeds, is it too late?

Excitable Boy do you not have any fleece? Having looked at the predicted weather for May I may need to make some more fleece bags.

lilylouise it will be fine, by the time your garden is open it will be glorious sunshine .

Wintersong that is a monster.

I have been out in the garden, so cold. I could not put any dahlias in the ground it seemed too cruel.

Last year  I liberated some thrift seeds from a neglected garden, they are now quite large plants. Has anyone else liberated seeds?

Shed Theft

Sandra this mindless theft and vandalism is so upsetting. I do feel for you.

I had a neighbour who did not lock his car, he did disconnect the battery, on the basis that the cost of replacing smashed windows was more expensive. Has anyone on you site lost a lot, is it worth the theives coming back? Will you have a sense if someone uses your shed for other activities?

what are these?

Hyppybyker good luck with the veg, I am not finding it as easy as it looks.

Great photos Yvie. 

Geoff I have checked my forecast no frost predicted here??

Wintersong I would also love some sculpted plants, I bought a box last year for £2 in a sale and in a couple of years I hope to get a nice shape

Oddity- a month ago I had a couple of leggy begonias, I was advised to hard prune and that has worked out well. I put the cuttings in water and they have produced roots plus they have produced leaves on the bottom of their stems, completely covered in water. I thought leaves needed air?
