Did you buy it in Morrison's? I bought one last week, but got pack of 5 last spring, I got some little ones off the sides for cuttings in the autumn and it's surviving the cold and growing really well now.

Put some seeds in a month or so ago, all germinated in no time, really easy, grows anywhere.

It will get better when the site is up and running correctly again.

But, there is the fact that an opening thread starts off about, say trees, then gets side track to whats for dinner. (or similar)

You just have to wade through until you find what you want, 

If you want to look up something specific, say, clematis, try putting it in the search box at the top.

Or, the greener version.

Which is what I used last year, so no baby grubs to turn into adult weevils  this year.

And so they should be Calendula, I wonder what happened to the ones they chappy in the AG mag sowed.

They would be beautiful plants if it was a month later!

I feel I will be planting these out with at best the flowers on, or at worse, the baby toms.

I think there is a bit of a problem at the moment WW, they are probably updating site, normally you can just click on your name by the login box then click on my posts, I am getting oops! at the moment, but it will be righted soon I should think.

I took the advise of some young gardener in AG mag to set tomato seeds in January, my dad there sniggering away, 'Thats the way to do it these days dad' I says!

'Go on then' Says he.

Well, now my plants are 9/10" tall, no way they can go into the unheated greenhouse, and thinking never in the garden.

i will probably have to pot them on yet again, and so have to house 10 x 6" flower pots in the conservatory.

I have learned my lesson, listen to the oldies, they know best, dad has been gardening in this garden for 26 years, who was I to think I knew best.

OK Geoff, you win on this one!

Me too, wait till you see some shoots, they may have died over this cold winter, even the ones they say are hardy, are not always, I couldnt leave my annabelle outside.

Have you checked the roots for vine weevil.
