I have never had perennial ones. I grow lots of seeds every year for the garden and the tubs, its very easy, every one germinates and you get hundreds in a packet of seeds.

I take it Gypsophilia and Gypsophila are the same plant?

In the town quite near to me,  Launceston, there were, at my last count, ten charity shops.  Its such a tiny little place to have so many, its such a shame that the local shopkeepers have had to give up because the rates are so high. The charity shops dont pay rates, t least that is what I heard.

Not bad SGL. Everything concidered.

I havent had a very good week, up until 6.30 am on Tuesday night/Weds morning, couldnt get mum working, you know. She was in a lot of pain by then, but not bad now, I am just listening to make sure she has gone to sleep.

I have this Ad at the top of my screen at the moment, looks good and seems simple enough to fix up. I have never had one but it looks a lovely thing to do.

I have hotmail, there is a block facility on its toolbar.

Whatever you do on the internet your email address will be circulated, I suspect even our hospital is guilty of selling email address's judging by the adds I have coming through with only adds for  items that only the hospital would know about.

I dont use one at all, I like a few stones in my soil for drainage, everything grows just fine.

fast germination of seeds in propagator

There is no point in rushing, seeds sown in Feb wont be any bigger or better than those sown in March or April, in fact they will be worse, leggy and week. 

I am sure we all have failures Bekkie, I always sow more than I need in case of failure, its a bonus then when you get extras.
