Thanks folks, I think I'll go for the dry mix and the rest in the morning.

I have made them before annmarie but make and cook straight away.

 Unless you're in a hurry consider growing from seed. Much cheaper.

Foxgloves, is it too late to sow?

Foxgloves shed so many seeds the loss of a few won't be noticed

Cornus Sanguinea and Viburnum Opulus size reduction

Both of these will come back if hard pruned in winter. I'd take them back to a stump.

Hi all,

I'm producing cheese scones in number for tomorrow am. Is it acceptable practice to build them tonight, put them in the fridge, then sprinkle cheese and cook in the morning?

are you asking about taking the old one apart or just making a new one

Yes, sow them. They'll either flower next year or the one after. Or just let them sow themselves, much easier. Your common sense view is one I share. Fresh seed germinates, stored seed might germinate.

How lovely.

Though I'm sure there are some that will not agree.

If you don't want a lot of work you could strim or rough mow the area to keep the weeds down and stop them seeding. There are plants that will grow under deciduous tree. Raising the canopy, (sawing off the lower branches), can let more light in.

I have cyclamen just appearing under trees now. Astrantia will grow in shade but would need extra water, aquilegias as well. Several hardy geraniums, G. macrorrhizum is very good in shade
