Do you remember the episode of Dr Who where the alien leaves her victims with blank faces? 

Sweet Pea thread

Posted: 17/04/2012 at 22:31

I'm growing the same as last year, plus a mixed packet of the ones they gave away with GW mag last month.  The usual suspects (who are all out in the garden doing their stuff) are Painted Lady, Gwendoline and Our Harry.  They were all sown last autumn.  The free GW seeds have not come up yet.  I love sweet peas.

April in Your Garden

When I got home from work I had to rescue my holly because it's pot had blown over again.  I had deliberately moved it to a sheltered corner because I knew it was going to be windy but it obviously was not sheltered enough.  I picked it up (getting a face full of prickly leaves for my reward), gave it a drink and tucked it away in the corner between the shed and the back door.  That was enough gardening for one windy day on the south coast.

Herb - Sweet cicely

Posted: 16/04/2012 at 22:28

I planted a sweet cicely in my garden last year.  It was one of several different plants which I bought when I attended a herb course at the Weald & Downland museum.  The lady told us that you could use it to sweeten rhubarb but I hate rhubard!  I ended up nibbling it occasionally when I was gardening.  I was pleased to see that it is shooting up again now.  I would also be interested in more uses for it.

Hi all.  I thought I would pop over here as so many of us Beeb people have fluttered over here after being pushed out of the nest.
