... and then they say "I've cleaned the oven for you" or "I've cleaned the sink for you"

Reminds me of my son in law, he looked after house and kids the other weekend whilst daughter was on a course, when she got back he say's I have cleaned your sink, I have cleaned your cooker, etc. what is his, we wondered.

Can't garden so reading the books

Posted: 24/03/2013 at 14:02
At moment I am reading:
The impossible life of Mary Benson. Biography.
Moll Flanders - Daniel Defoe.
Brideshead revisited- Evelyn Waugh.
I like lots of books on the go at one time.

Plant cuttings?

Wait till your verbena starts to grow again, then in late summer have a go at breaking the little side shoots off and potting them up.
Theres not much you can do from cuttings at the moment, keep on with your seeds for the time being, and preparing your ground, you could sprinkle some bone meal in and lightly dig it in.

I used to get that every time on photo bucket, I took all my photos off and won't use it anymore, never had it on here though, I expect a techie will come to the rescue.

Plant cuttings?

I took my cuttings last October, they're cut down now, but if yours aren't, all I did was pull off the little shoots from the side of the main stem and popped them in sandy soil.

Talkback: Growing hellebores from seed

Posted: 23/03/2013 at 17:56
I just put my seeds in a tray of compost once they were dried out a bit, covered with grit, (see, I learn from carol) left them outside tucked up in sheltered corner, and this winter up they popped, all of them.
Some seed company s make things sound so complicated.
I don't think they will flower for about 4 years though.
