Pride before a fall!

Thanks Santas litle helper!  I might have nipped off the pod too early, it had started opening but hadn't fully opened..... but I'll give it a go.

It sounds like from what you've all discribed I've got the conditions licked in the conservatry..... it's really cold (in comparison to the rest of the house, I water once a week on a Saturday morning as I'm cleaning up and it does get a bit of condenstion in there when we are cooking, the kitchen leads straight on to it with no door so there's always a bit of steam build up!

Burghill ~ the pod has started splitting which is why I noticed it so fingers crossed.... and like I said earlier, anything from cutting or seed from an existing plant is a bonus for me because they are free!

See I knew you guys wouldn't let me down! Thanks

I don't think I can take any of the credit for the seed pod to be fair, house plants a bit hit and miss here! I'll let you know how we get on, my theory with collected seeds is nothing ventured nothing gained.... it's not like I've paid for the seeds so anything I get out of it is a bonus and if it doesn't work I've only lost a couple of minutes out of my life when potting up!!

I've recently found a site called Pintrest, (if you google it it should show no problem) there are thousands of ideas and how to's on there and even just photos for inspiration. if you've not come across it and you're redesigning or just looking for some ideas it's worth a look.....

Be warned though it's quite addictive.

I find certain frequencies cut through to my hearing, the big cluncky wooden ones I don't notice, the tiny tinckley ones are ok too it's the medium metal ones which seem to penetrate my hearing, I don't have any in the garden not much point really we're far to sheltered at the back! I think you could be onto a winner with the prob when they go on holidays, it will be interesting to see if they even notice!

Morning All,

hope you all had a restful Christmas!

I'm hoping to tap into your knowledge of house plants.

I'm rather proud that I've have managed to keep alive the cyclamen which my aunty gave me for my birthday back in September (I'm really bad with house plants!)

Sydney (any house plant who lives longer than 2 months in this house deserves a name!) is obviously happy and healthy, he's still got new leaves and flowers coming up. he's managed a seed pod from one of the spent flowers I missed on my Saturday morning inspections which I've nicked off this morning,

My question is if I dry this out could I grow new plants from the seeds or is it really tricky. I've no greenhouse.... yet, but this is on the WILL get list this coming spring, garden is the big housey project this coming year. However we do have a very cold conservatory which is doubling up for the waifs and strays which need a bit of TLC over the winter for now!

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Jackers,

We moved into a new house this spring and quickly dug a veg patch to grow some spuds, didn't have time to prep the soil so dug in some seaweed (unwashed) which the much beloved used when he brought home some peeler crabs for fishing bait.

did a fantastic job! I think they also spread it on the Jersey Royal fields... but don't hold me to that I might have made it up!

Hi all, I've got a reasonable sized loveage about 1.5 ft tall but it seems to be struggling a bit. It was doing ok earlier in the yr but i just bought it this may. Do they usually die off about this time of year or do we think he needs a new home?
