Lots of sites on the internet, bear in mind that 100 will only go in a small space, I put mine in and they got lost, there are some reputable firms that sell 1000 with a discount.

Looks like i'm now growing a bell pepper...

I only ever use seed straight out of a bought pepper. Last year I chose a long banana shaped one, really sweet and very prolific.

I only  keep them in my conservatory, never outside, potting on gradually to reach 8 inch pots. Feed with tomato food when buds appear.

 What plants do they poison, I have primroses, daffs, montbretia, rose of sharon, a self seeded buddlia, solemans seal, lots of annuals, a perennial sweet pea, several plants grow under it.

The ground cover plant collection I bought in the winter from J.Parkrrs sales have grown on beautifully, I put them outside today to harden off but forgot to bring them in, blowing a gale now and pouring rain, hopefully they will be ok, they were only in a plastic greenhouse with zip open before.

So sorry Dove, I hope your mum just calmly accepts the situation as it is, hopefully she wont be too distressed. Your parents were married for the same length of time as mine...68 years.

Dad has been sorting through loads of papers, cards, newspaper cuttings, my mum kept everything ! 

I ordered the flowers today, sorted out some paper work, got the registrar sorted out, I seem to have been on the go for hours.

Steve, thank you for your post above and hoping you can get back to normal in time.

You are right about gardening though, I have found time to sow a few more seeds this afternoon, half hour in the greenhouse works wonders.

Listening to Radio 2, up to the year 1962....lots of memories there!
