Failed tulips in containers

Posted: 06/03/2016 at 14:36

Could have been mice squirrels or voles. Last year they turfed every one out of my window boxes, this year they left those alone and ate every crocus, just left the outer skin laying on the top. Gotta feed the wildlife I suppose. My dad warned me to cover them with close wire mesh, did I listen....

I have had plants, last year I saved the seeds and will sow in about a week. Never grown then from seeds before but don't see why they would be any different from any other plants. 

Guess the plant

Sounds like my daughter, Frank, she gives me a plant when it's way past it and wants me to resurrect it. 

My son in law just says, don't worry mum, every generation has their problems, always has, always will.

Put a different plant there, one without berries, difficult to stop birds doing what they do.

I am just the same as Holly, lots of seeds and cuttings going on, love it out there on my own, we are miles from anywhere so completely peaceful. Days in the greenhouse are especially nice.

Why not just change your sleep pattern, who says you have to sleep from 12 to 8am? 

My sleep time is from 4am?

if you want to sleep longer in the morning and can't do that through the night, then do so. Don't lay in bed getting annoyed because you can't sleep, get up, make tea and toast, take a blanket, sit on settee, watch a film, read a book, then sleep until you wake up, whatever time that is. There's something to be said for eat when you're hungry and sleep when your tired. Be a free spirit, do what suits you. 

Failing that go down to the supermarket and buy a packet of Nightol
