Clarington, how about treating your mum to a water filter jug, and a supply of filters that will last until you visit again, we live in Devon and the water is supposed to soft, it's horrible, I could not drink it straight from the tap.

I remember visiting a friend in Essex and the tea tasted as though it was just out of a swimming pool. People get used to it and probably your mums always had it that way.

I might have sent you some.

would you have sent just six though GM? They were in a used envelope which makes me feel they must be mine, what a surprise I will get, can't wait to sow them.

Living where you do ,you will need to stake broad beans, I put canes all along the row then tie in with string as they grow. They still blow about but at least you have something to tie them too.

Does anyone have a 'Barren piece of land' that size?

I sowed some that need the winter frost to germinate but apart from that there is no point in starting now, by the time you can plant them out, which will be end of May or even June,depending on where you live,  they will be leggy, need repotting a few times, have you got a warm place with lots of space, to keep them when they are all in big pots.

Most of mine will be sown in mid March, with the exception of Lobelia which I do in mid Feb, the cosmos even later, nearer to end of March and even sowed some in June for late flowering.

I don't want to be a pest if everyone else has emailed her.
