What the hellebores is going on?

My daughter has dug hers up as they are filling her border, brought them all up to me to plant, must be a dozen huge plants, some I grew from seed for her. They are all in full flower at the moment.

This is what happens when seeds are sown too early, they will be very tall by the time you can plant them out in May.

Growing lettuce in pots

I have grown some in a deep seed tray, I can then pick off the outside leaves and they will grow again, keep sowing in succession, who wants 100 lettuses ready to eat in one week. I do the same with radish, sow a dozen in a large ice cream tub or similar, then again in two weeks time. 

Can you identify this plant?

There are times when we just have to admit that theOH is right

Cerinthe seeds

That's what I mean Nut, they drop thousands of seeds, never to be seen again, so I pick them up and start off next spring indoors.

I have never got any to germinate in the garden. Always sown indoors.

Probably not warm enough to germinate, are you giving then a constant 21c you could try bringing them indoors on a warm window sill.

Is this plant a fern?

Looks like an ivy.

I think I must have been hard on my children when they were young, if they didn't do anything, they didn't get anything.

if the washing wasn't in the bin it didn't get washed, if they didn't clean their rooms, they lived in the mess,  their clean clothes were placed on their beds, if they chose to put it on the floor and not in the drawers, they wore it creased up.

if they used all the mugs without washing any, they either had to wash them or use a dirty one. Oh, I was cruel.

two beautiful people now though, and both encourage their own off spring to do jobs in the house.

its the 12 year olds duty to empty the dish washer and put it all away before he goes to school, it just comes naturally to him now, he never questions it.
