We have Foehn (pronounced fern) effect going on here at the moment. It's when moist air from the west rushes up over the mountains and warm-up coming down the other side. It's 25C in the greenhouse. Spent the morning power washing the patio.

what are you excited about?

Hi all

I have bought too much seed compost, if the bag remains unopened and I store it in a dry warm place, will the nutrients in it last to next year?

Hi Kitty

You could use the clear prop lid turned upside down. As long as its water tight. I did that last year when I run out of drip trays.

Hi, I see they have changed their sponsors from Mr Forthergill to T@M. I have had good success with garden news seeds in the past. I hope you get on well with yours.

Hi, I would like to buy an Etain viola to compliment the existing one I have. I'm searching on line but all the nurseries I click on with British sounding names are in the U.S.. Do any of you have nurseries near you I can contact to ask. Thanks
