Does anyone else get annoyed when you here 2 times what's the matter with the word twice??

I could maybe get a bit annoyed when people don't know the difference between here and hear.

Language evolves. That includes,grammar,spelling,pronunciation,usage etc.

The more we are able to manipulate these, the more control we have over what is understood by the person with whom we are communicating. But this only works if that person has knowledge of the same rules and conventions (whether they choose to accept them or not).

lWhat matters should be what a person has,to say not how they say it, but this is rarely the case..

On a gardening note: is hobby-horse manure good for roses?

I find bull s**t works well.

to the previous poster who said a piece of wood 2x4 should be called 4 by 2, surely that should be 4 be 2?

You can only put profile pictures on from a PC, iPad/phones don't work. 

Anyone else strapped for space?

Ricinus, if you're not planning on eating it. Tall Canna. Cardoon.

Layering is good, if you just score, with a blade  a little bit of the bark, then pin down it will root, failing that, just poke them in a pot, I do them anytime, doesn't seem to make much difference.

I have a dehumidifier in my conservartory sucks out excess water, blows out warm air and the water is constantly recycled.

Sowing seeds

If I self sowed em I'd never see them again.

I do have hundreds of them all over the garden but wanted to try the seeds for fun,as Hortico says,  I think perhaps they are best grown straight out of the plants, not kept until winter.

Don't worry Hosta, it was just a try really. 

The tall ones  you gave me are shooting up now.

If you seed the garden you have to hope it rains and then hope even more that the slugs don't eat them.

Hosta, you can't stowaway in her suitcase

To early here in Devon to sow annuals yet, the only ones I have sown are the ones that need a cold spell.

its not bringing on the seeds, it's what are you going to do with them afterwards, you can't plant out till May at least,  by then they will all be in 5 or 6 inch flower pots! you must have loads of space to keep 100+ of all your different varieties.
