Watching seedlings grow

Posted: 02/04/2015 at 17:01

Hey GG my sunflowers have begun to germinate but very sporadic, hope they all catch up.

2nd lot of zinnias will go in next week I think

looking good Lyn. I used those seed discs and had a good display, the blue coloured one wasn't as good as the yellow coloured one though - did save an awful lot of messing about

Sorry Runny

Cooker looks like new, one of the doors handles was really wonky and OH couldn't work out how to tighten it, they did it for him. Took 2 blokes about 1 1/2 hours and they also did my extractor, polishing the stainless steel funnel right up to the ceiling. May seem a long time but I have a double oven Rangemaster affair. Worth it and the firm used Ovenclean.

There's a business opportunity for you and OH, Liz

Apologies Christine 007

Small still can be done - lovely pots and containers either with a mix in each or would look great with single varieties in different shades in each pot. Don't foget can always go up as well

My sunflowers are showing signs of germination

Sm shopping  nothing plant-like fell into trolley - must be slipping!

Spent a while wiping some bugs off my little holly ttree, no idea what they are but wipe of easily when I put a disposable glove on, probablt find some more when I go out again - little blighters

Going to do some dead-heading of little daffs so they die back, can be lifted and then moved - bought 40 Thalias in packet, have come up as tete a tete!!!

Morning All

Waiting for a man to come and clean cooker 

Still windy here, but not as strong as yesterday, chill with it though.

No pans today unless can persuade OH that he wants to take me to B&Q

Cheering thoughts to all those who are suffering in whatever way. Bekkie - listen to your body - it's telling you it needs to sleep!!!

They do have to be tied in - not climbers in the sense of clematis or honeysuckle but do grow tall.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Lyn if you look in here I hope it all goes OK tomorrow.

You will cope with it all as well . 
I was going to say be strong but in fact it's the last thing I wanted to hear so just get by and see you the other side xx

Just hope old C brain can remember what to do in future
