"Anything else is both ill-mannered and stupid. it is undignified and it causes hurt and provokes quarrels. "

And that is why they do it, to provoke quarrels, All the forums have these people, if you defend yourself or the other person, they just love it, that is what they do.

It takes two to quarrel, the best bet is to say absolutely nothing, the thing they hate most is to look at how many people have 'viewed' the thread and see that 'none' have replied, when this happens a few times they will move on to another forum.

I know you feel the need to defend people, but you are playing into the hands of these 'flame baiters'

As for people on the site making nasty comments, we should really feel sorry for them, and think twice before we post to make sure it comes across as correct.

I wouldnt stand on peanut butter, I hate the squelch between your toes.

can i cut

Posted: 15/03/2013 at 14:08

With mine, I cut the stalk about 3inches long, strip of some of the leaves from the bottom them put in sandy, dry seed compost, keeing it quite dry or the stalks will rot. You could put 3 in a 3inch flower pot, but make sure you dont overwater.

I love this heart leaf variety, if you get them going, maybe we could do a swap if there are any that I have you would like.


Seeds are up

I am not going to sow my cosmos until end of the month, they grow so quickly and will be up in a few days, if you sow them to early you have to pot them on many times, you still cant plant them out until May, by then they will be very big. late sowing catch up and will be good strong plants.

They will come right, I have grown these for 20 years, all from one little plant I bought in a green grocers. I think every one in Devon must have an off shoot of it. It will make loads,I will take a pic later and you will see what I mean.

Just wondering if your prims have grown as they should now, mine are just popping up with stalks now, they will be better when we have some more warm sun. Have you got the lilac coloured ones?
