DD Lewis started three weeks ago!! , last night was the third episode, although they are splitting them, so part 1 & 2 of the first story gone, and part 1 of the new one last night. I don't like them split like that so record them and wait for the full story.

Can you get them OnDemand or catch up?

Does anyone remember a bear called Gladly, just reminded me after my predictive text email to Hosta!

So no one remembers Gladly. He was the babies teddy in the cartoon series the Perishers. Daily Mail I think.

Hosta, you were up early and I was up late, still internetting at 2am.

Whatsoever it is, it won't recover. May have to replace.

Seed and plant swap 2015

I have collected some Calendula seeds, they are bright yellow and a large plant, big flowers.

Have I forgotten anyone, like promised seeds that never arrived, I am doing a Granma here !!

I have lost all my PM's again. That's happened before.

i also need to get in touch with the person who wanted the spikey pink dahlia, her address was in my pm's, now lost.



What new plants will you be trying?

 You are right Verdun, I never thought of that, anemones flower quite late don't they, there will be a bare space until they get going, I think all in the same border, but spread out with other things between.

Plant Paupers wall, what are those daisy like plants that spread all over the walls in Cornwall, agyranthimums is it?

Hosta got some nice ones in the front garden.

I love Laurence Fox, as well, have recorded all the Lewis series so far, will watch on a cold wet afternoon.

What is River,? 

Hosta, I thought about leaving my Cannas that are planted out, in the garden, not a good idea? daughter leaves hers but she is over the border, it's an overcoat colder here.

Hope,everyone's hubbies have a good night.

They used to say you never own a cat, they are free spirits, that's why there was never a license for cats, only dogs. Used to be 7.6d.

most of my cats in the past have been strays.

Seed identifications needed

Posted: 21/10/2015 at 00:43

first looks like just dead flowers when it's blown up, not sure if there are seeds in there.

I would go with Fritillary seeds For 2.

3  is an allium, but is it ripe enough, looks a bit fresh.

I would be pretty sure that 4 are lupins.

best sow them all then show us again when they have leaves.

You will need easily that! I have just been pulling out the roots, they trail underground for about two ft, with little shoots every three inches. best in a pot methinks.

i have acquired four different Japanese Anemones, I dont know whether to plant them in a group, together, or dot them around the garden, any thoughts please? 

I now have four grasses, never had them before. As well as the seeds I have coming on. My garden will be completely diffeent next year.
