Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

For crying out loud mike, you have much more than most, you are always on about your new lady friend on here that you dont know yet where its going, how do these post make her feel, totally inadequate I should imagine!

get to the Samaritains or similar, pansy and dove have given you the links, all you do is click on them. Give it rest on here, we dont want to know about your degrees and diploma's in every post.

You are definitely on the wrong site here.

What would you do?

Maybe its just my climate, but I have learned from experience not to sow any annuals till end of March to end of April.

I cant plant anything out until mid to end of May at least  so theres no point in sowing seeds any earlier or they just get leggy starved and most would need another potting on. 

My new year starts on the 1st Jan. As well.

If it was me I would give up Talk Talk, not the best, everyone I know down here has had trouble with it. Did you pull the plug out from your router and start again, also power off your ipad.

I always bring my pot grow Agapanthus into the unheated greenhouse for the winter.

I never got to finish all my mulching though, still got dahlias not covered.

Sowing Seeds in January

There are plenty of seeds in a packet, you probably only need about 4 plants, for anyone eager to get started just set the 4 then do the rest in the Spring.

Perhaps he's saving it for later,  Lizzie, waste not and all that.

I have just put some nibbles in the oven for tea. There are 8 of us here, and will be for a few more days, my daughfef stays for almost a week the boys love it, they have a choice of rooms with tv's for their games.

Step daughter has just gone, she bought me a lovely set of hand products by Joules, in a nice re usable tin.

Son and DIL came this morning, no meals though.

Dilemma........wot to choose?

Much like Nut, I am trying to go over to more perennials to save weeds and seed sowing, having said that, I love to do the seeds and the annuals are much prettier. As my borders are quite big I do need to put about 5 or six of the same in a group, but really what I plant mostly depends on what I can get hold off. I have found the seed swap has been invaluable.

Sowing Seeds in January

Its not so much heat but light levels they need, they will grow tall and leggy because they are struggling to get up to some real light.

Why the rush, if you sow them at the correct time you will get great rewards, no point in rushing.

Please can anybody tell me the name of this plant.

Watch them next summer John, you may see lots of little shoots coming up a few inches away from the main plants, these you can either transplant, beware, they can be quite deep, I like to see a nice big clump of them, but its up to you if you leave them or transplant.

There is always something flowering in the garden all year round.
