someone has just come for the little cat that wandered in, after three weeks ! 

She was really righted and didn't want to go, she showed her displeasure but squirting around the kitchen, she has been by clean. Poor little thing was petrified.

its turned very cold now, and still I didn't get the bulbs planted.

Beautiful day here, OH gone to church, I am not dressed!

Hope to finish emptying tubs today, still haven't got any bulbs in (still haven't ordered any new ones), I will try to get last years Hyacinths in the garden.

Cant miss this weather, rain forecast for every day next week.

Hope everyone has a good day, and not too much rain anywhere,.

I would go with Mullien, is it large now, like bigger than a Primrose?, they grow huge, about 5 or 6 ft tall and a couple of feet across.

Is it huge or the angle of the photo, if it's really that big it would need a lot of feeding and regularly repotting into fresh compost.

A friend of mine who was over weight and had a needle inserted in her ear lobe, every time she felt like eating she just touched the needle and didn't want the food. This was back in the early '70's. It did work and she lost the weight she needed too. Whether it was the needle or sheer will power. I lost two stone purely because I wanted too, but with her, I don't know, but whatever it was, it worked.

personally, I have needle phobia, so would be on the floor at the first sight!.

I sometimes get the feeling that what Monty does on the programme is what he has been told to do and not what he does for his own personal garden.

With any plants .you start off with a pot that is just a little bit bigger than the root then pot on gradually as they fill that particular pot,  I don't suppose they will grow much over winter, so start off with probably a four inch as they are only plug plants.

i would keep them in a cold frame or greenhouse for this winter, they are very small to leave out.

if they have that mesh or netting stuff on them remove it, then the roots can grow.
