You're quite right Tina! I love it!!! poor house does get neglected from now onwards. Just popped in for a bacon sandwich and a cuppa then its back out for me. In the middle of potting up my toms, not sure if I'm a little early but they look a bit leggy so thought I'd give it a go....still very,very new to all this

Ok Verdun, here goes, never done this before and it feels sooo wrong! Will this make them bush out?

Well I know its getting a little late to wish all you early birds a good morning but I've only just seen the thread....and what a great thread it is too! Love listening to what you're all up to. Been pretty busy myself planting and weeding and here in Wales the sun is shining lovely. Think I'll be making the most of it for most of the day. Now I've found you all I'll keep in touch!!

I planted Everlasting Sweetpeas early March which are still sitting on my indoor windowsill. They are doing well and are about 6/8" tall but spindley. Should I pinch the tops and if so how? They each have around 5 lots of 2 leaves. Any help gladly appreciated!

Hi Guys,

I've planted some flower seeds (which I can't spell but sounds like this...mes mer ran thums ) followed the instructions on the pack and put them in my greenhouse but it didn't mention watering them. Having just watched Monty planting flower bulbs, he said the flowers need water to this all flowers, should I water mine?

PS I covered them with a layer of vermiculite stuff, please excuse my ignorence.
