Don't know if slugs have them, they seem to avoid the wild /weed type flowers and go for your best delphs, lupins etc πŸ˜€

Thye don't really need warmth, have you got a conservatory or cold room, it's only to keep the frost off for now. 

Potting...depends on how pot bound they are, what will be their final destination, baskets, garden tubs? If so, I would leave them in what they're in now, if they are just going into individual pots, then yes, pot on if they need it. Bang one out of the pot and look at the roots.

The Metal Store list 6mm bar 3m long for under £2.



See original post

 I can't see those, only ones for £2.76. 

I bought 30 of these but probably cheaper from a specialist merchant. 

Heres a link to  Monty making them.

I haven't put geraniums/pelargoniums out in the greenhouse yet, we have some cold nights forecast for here in Devon, so if they were mine I would bring them in the house for a few days, put out during the days if it's warm,  then bring indoors in the evening. Still  plenty of time to harden off and plant out, don't rush them, they will appreciate a bit of TLC when they are young.πŸ™‚

Is Devon different?

I am a Devon gardener and I can vouch for the fact that Devon is different, never do our woodlice eat plants in a day like yours.

It's a good job we have some brainy people then to that sort of thing. I pay a solicitor to do the wills and would probably ask one to write a treaty for me if the question arose.

Its no good you telling me to 'sort it for Pete's sake'  I haven't got a clue.

Lots of nice ones there, gorgeous little nursery bed, have you got room to plant out when they grow on, the Cerinthe will grow at least two feet wide and maybe more. 

Hello Forkers - April edition

Did you use one specifically for your iPad Liz?  Or the one one for your laptop. You need the correct version.

The only ad you should be seeing is the one in the top right corner, currently Sarah Raven and that's not offensive. 

You may need to power right off and turn on again.

It doesn't matter to me one bit, as long as people write or talk to me

My 13 year old grandson is doing a MathS A level this year, has already won a scholarship to a special Maths school which will ensure/insure πŸ˜€ him a place at university, he's already joined the Police Force as that is what he wants to specialise in , with a view to MI5 later, try to read one of his English compositions, best not mentioned,  I don't think it really matters, we are all good in our own field.

i have stopped posting on other forums because of this, I feel certain people are not reading what I post, just picking up on my grammar. For certain reasons, I didn't do a lot of schooling, so finer points sometimes come harder to me.

i have just read on another forum I post on sometimes someone said she couldn't be friends with someone who didn't get the grammar right.  That lets me out thenπŸ˜€
