soil for seedlings

Posted: 17/02/2016 at 13:00

All my sweet peas are up, just in multi purpose, sometimes I mix a bit of seed compost in, sometimes not depending on what I have.

i find seeds germinate in anything.

Maybe we should go to where you and OH get dental treatment Hosta!   Certainly quicker than getting a phone call from our doc, maybe the letter will do some good, blimey, I only want to say six words. 8 day wait! 

I am in a fowl mood, so won't post anymore today, bound to upset someone.

Plants for around a pond

I think you may need to fence it off or something, you say it's exposed to passers by.

lots of choices of plants given, note that bunny grass is barely 6" tall though.

Where are we chucking them too, perhaps we should emigrate

My OH says NHS should be privatised, they would pull their socks up then. It's discusting, when there are more people in the country they should take on more doctors.

Containing roots- any alternative to rootex bags?

mould on germinating seeds

Don't be embarrassed, everyone has to learn. We've all done it.

I find seeds will germinate in anything, gravel in your drive, piece of wet kitchen roll, you don't need anything expensive to germinate them. its what you prick them out into that's more important as long as you have a good air flow and draining compost.

You could be better off if you waited a bit until March when the weather should be a bit warmer, don't know about drier, but just make sure there is plenty of air getting to your seeds and they are not wet.

I would just like to say thank you to Hazel re post about her dad and the Vit b12 deficiency. My dad is suffering very similar symptoms and  could well be that or anemia, so.. phoned to speak to the doctor this morning, to see if he could arrange a blood available  phone call appointment is next Tuesday! I have written a letter to him, quicker than a phone call.

Told by the receptionist, if he's ill, call an ambulance!
