WW, sorry for your loss, our mums belonged to the war generation, they were a very special lot. Brought up with hardship, no point in asking for anything, they wouldnt have got it if they did. They carried that right through their lives but gave to us everything they could. 

Some lovely poems here, Grans and Clares, thank you.

Just seen on the news, they are practicing for the ten tors race, poor kids camping out in the snow.

Hellebores and snowdrops very slow this year. Much colder.

Did you send me some seeds of those, Fidget? . I have lost all my pm's and cant remember who sent what! They are very rewarding from seeds and make lovely plants in their first year? Well worth having a go.

Far to early, sow some more beginning of March, they will be fine.

I grew these 50 for £2.50. Very easy to grow and beautiful flowers, they make good size tubers for the following year.

If you find the soil drying out, use a fine mist spray bottle. That way they wont get soaked.

I agree with all of the above posts, but wont sow any annuals till mid March. I can never plant out till start of June so no point in sowing earlier.

Making a wildlife pond

Posted: 31/01/2015 at 16:08

We made a pond last summer, I looked at the pre formed, and in fact bought one! What a mistake it was, , it didnt have a very slopey end for little baby newts and frongs to climb out of, it was an absolute pain in the wotsit to dig the hole exactly like the contours which is absolutely crucial, so dumped that and bought this.

Its very good, easy to cut and lay, we used the brown side uppermost but that is a matter of choice.
