Propagators, is it worth it?

I have never had one but lots of people do. If anything needs extra heat or to be kept in the dark. you could cover with a plastic bag. Tomato seeds are up in a couple of days with nothing over them at all

Pleased you've got that Runny, now to sort out your upside down photos 

Uploading photographs?

You can put pics on from phones, but not iPhones. I had an LG it worked on that one.

you can't put avatar pictures on though only on a laptop or PC  or Facebook. You need to connect your GW to your Facebook account.

Sophie, thank you very much, the Netpeta seeds arrived safely. That will keep the bees happy.

I wish the GC wouldn't sell these plants so early, they do it with tomato plants as well, very disappointing for new gardeners. 

I always use root trainers for my beans, one bean in each module. But those polystyrene cups are fine, I use them for lots of seeds.

2 dozen is not a lot, you'll be fine with those, you may find one or two won't germinate.

My giant Echiums are all pinky mauve, as in the photo above.

If you get any seeds from a white one later on NB, I would like a few Please.

Sorry leadfarmer I didn't see your reply there.

its no problem if you do online banking, jus go into your account and cancel it. If you don't, then I am not sure, it's usually a battle to do that.

I wouldn't buy the magazine,its only that I get it free, there are so many contradictions, Monty and Titchmarsh seem to always have to say something opposite to the other one, they also recommend the most expensive plants, quite out of reach of most people, but it's good for beginners, just read it and then decide if it's right for you. You can always change your sowing times/planting out times etc to suit your own climate and area you live.  They just give you a rough guide.

A magazine cannot possible give info set in stone, like one size fits all, it doesn't.

Shame Verdun, it's lovely here, that makes a change.

Well done Runny, you've got the smiley thing off now

what doesn't work though, is the smileys on you iPad keyboard. Not in this site anyway. The idea of keeping them in your photo files is that you can easily find them to use again.

edited to add.    Spoke too soon, it's snowing and has settled
