Doves right there, no heat, when sowing seeds think of their usual habitat, they drop off the plant and grow perfectly well in the open garden.

I started mine off in September/October ish, they are sitting in the freezing cold greenhouse, perfectly happy. They are tough plants.

Hi Vic, could I have some mixed coloured sweet peas please, I have a packet of lilac ones someone sent me but lost all my messages the other day so cant look back to see who it was.

Many thanks. 

I may try to copy and paste my previous list, not sure how to do it!

I can speak for the young here... my stepson who is studying for a degree worked in Tesco for  the year that he was doing  work experience, ( he did do the work experience as well, in case anyone calls him a shirker) anyway, he didnt mind it at all, he welcomed the extra hours when it coming up to Christmas and when he left to go back to uni, they said he could come back anytime. 

My OH's half partner has a son who works in Tesco, he had been there quite a few years, quite happy there, he also has a son working in Lidl, they treat the staff so much better and have made the boy up to management position now.

These three boys are happy enough just to have a job, its not that hard work, not compared to their dads, humping ton slabs of granite around all day!

Maybe its because Launceston is a very poor area that these kids are happy to get a job. They hate being on the dole or scrounging.

I use Morrisons every week, the same people have been working there for as long as the shop has been open, some from when it was previously Safeways. They all are a very cheerful lot, if they didnt like it surely they wouldnt stay.

I used to breed those silkies in all of the colours, they make wonderful brooders, will sit on anyones eggs. Very placid and make good pets for children, (only if you are an experienced hen keeper, I must add)

You and me both SGL, as you know

He was probably paid handsomely for the use of his name on that. I dont suppose he has a clue whats in it. 

Or is that me being cynical, maybe he has took the time to mix his own compost for retail.
