All Toms & Aubergine gone into GH  and wrapped up, they are growing too fast in conservatory..wish me luck!  They should be okay and we have had some cold nights in conservatory and tonight should be mild.


Peppers and chillies still cosseted in the dining room, so a tray on my knee again tonight

Begonias put into their planters in GH as they now have six leaves each. Dahlia tubers are growing well in their new buckets in GH.  

Lots of potting on to do tomorrow. 

No coriander for the curry tonight    as only 2 from 24 have germinated   

Panic stations about sowing new herbs, thrown the old ones out today, I wanted a fresh start as they were woody and not too good last year.  Still haven't sown my bunching spring onions in cells should have done them a month ago 

Radishes are showing 

Have a good evening all even if you have a broken fork

It isn't fully hardy, I can't keep Ceanothus here due to the wind and frost, not even the plain ordinary one, my mother has a lovely variegated one not too far away but in a very sheltered garden. 

How tough is chard vs a clumsy gardener?

Ecokid, I've only grown rainbow chard and as a late Autumn/ winter crop, I'm still picking it  I assume it will survive your bad day  However I think if you grow it now it will bolt in hot weather. Might be that Vulcan chard is a summer crop but it is a new one to me. 

Oh dear oh dear,,oh dear......

Why shouldn't her paternal grandmother get a mention, I thought Diana's family had more history than the Windors.
