Hi very interesting thread I'd really appreciate some more info please, if growing onions from seed sown at christmas time, what temperatures are you using for germination and what conditions and where /  how long do you keep the seedlings before planting them outside. Thanks in advance Norm

Well done dove, Its great to hear of someone having some good fortune, enjoy the book, I've always liked Mr T 's presenting style on his gardening programmes but must admit to having not read his books, off to library methinks for some holiday reading.

Jo, with your boiler, you deffo need to get engineers to check it out, the first 30 - 50 mins after firing up is when there is the most demand on it ( it runs at its highest capacity during this time to get the system up to temperature quickly), three possible things spring to mind,

1. scaled up heat exchanger but I have discounted that as it's a new boiler.

2  it needs the burner pressures / combustion mixture adjusting

3. there may be a restriction in the flow,

You need an engineer with the correct analyser equipment to check and adjust the mixture but you can do a basic check on the flow yourself, try opening up all the radiator valves to max and see if it alters  / stops the noise, hope this may help you pinpoint the problem.

Regards Norm

Hi Guys, guess for todays chocolate is a baby bear or cub (thinking goldilocks here). Very nice tree rain, we've switched to pure sunflower hearts in our birdfeeders and the birds can't get enough of them and no mess or wastage, we buy a large sackfull from a local market pet store. The Initial outlay is a bit steep but it works out so much cheaper than buying small bags, can't begrudge the cost as I get so much pleasure watching them feed. Hopefully be able to post up piccie of tree tomorrow. catch you soon.

Afternoon forkers another busy day, had to buy a new vacuum cleaner as ours blew up this morning,  It's been missing a few accessories and making strange noises for a while now and the pre christmas cleaning onslaught has finally seen it off. Tree is now up and front room decorated,  I am surrounded by garlands, twinkling lights and all manner of light up christmassy things and feel very festive indeed (could be the sherry imbibed during the decoration process), hope the back improves I.Q, & the head clears dean, nice table Geoff I'd give you a round of applause but then again..........
