Good morning. 

Dull and windy here but it is 12C  warmest morning in ages. 

tomato seed germination

Posted: 25/02/2015 at 19:55

Mine germinate 7-10 days in unheated propagator in dining room  in light but not direct sun in temps of about 18C in day 12C at night but don't do them until mid March, night temps too cold until then.  If very cold overnight I put an old towel over the top to keep them warm and get up early to uncover them 

Sadly, a lesson not learned!

Hi all 

So much going on I can't reply to all 

Bekkie I'm fine thanks no forum lurgy. 

Lesley well said  I will fess up to not minding some penne with carbonara sauce but as much as I love tomatoes any pasta with tom sauce isn't my thing.

I've posted on the Any Gardening done today thread about what I've been doing. 

Last episode of Wolf Hall tonight 

Enjoy your evening everyone. 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Potted on my new hellibore 'Slate'

Thrown my Winter Density lettuce away got mega aphids on it in GH  happily other salad stuff okay.

Fed my large Brugmansia in GH it's starting to grow, potted on the small one growing inside already in leaf and potted up the two that have rooted in water.

Sown some coriander in modules reckon it will germinate as the stuff I tipped outside due to aphids is bare rooted and it hasn't died. Plus some cut and grow salad. 

Considered starting my shallots off in modules, I have to because the birds play with them if planted directly  decided to wait as it's only Feb' and they grow quickly in GH and bed isn't ready for them 

Itching to sow and plant other things but think I should wait a couple of weeks. 

Paths swept and daleks turned, it's been a lovely few hours.

Love the chaffinch photos, I've yet to get a decent picture of a small bird by the time I've zoomed in and found the subject it has flown. Last Summer I nearly got heat stroke standing in the GH waiting for a subject
