Or, the greener version.

Which is what I used last year, so no baby grubs to turn into adult weevils  this year.

And so they should be Calendula, I wonder what happened to the ones they chappy in the AG mag sowed.

They would be beautiful plants if it was a month later!

I feel I will be planting these out with at best the flowers on, or at worse, the baby toms.

I think there is a bit of a problem at the moment WW, they are probably updating site, normally you can just click on your name by the login box then click on my posts, I am getting oops! at the moment, but it will be righted soon I should think.

I took the advise of some young gardener in AG mag to set tomato seeds in January, my dad there sniggering away, 'Thats the way to do it these days dad' I says!

'Go on then' Says he.

Well, now my plants are 9/10" tall, no way they can go into the unheated greenhouse, and thinking never in the garden.

i will probably have to pot them on yet again, and so have to house 10 x 6" flower pots in the conservatory.

I have learned my lesson, listen to the oldies, they know best, dad has been gardening in this garden for 26 years, who was I to think I knew best.

OK Geoff, you win on this one!

Me too, wait till you see some shoots, they may have died over this cold winter, even the ones they say are hardy, are not always, I couldnt leave my annabelle outside.

Have you checked the roots for vine weevil.

the weather

You must have had some good weather in the past 14 years!

you can garden in all but pouring rain or when the ground is frozen.

We have about 4/5 weather threads on the go, perhaps you could pick up some tips from there.
