Seed Swap/Give Away

I think a new thread for the swap is a good idea. The threads get so long if you carry them on from year to year

Time flies. But you're right, 10 years isn't long for concrete or reconned stone

One of those sealants that go round windows to seal the gap? I'd go to a building materials warehouse and see what they've got for sealing anything to concrete.

I assume we're talking Prunus laurocerasus?

It makes a nice big shiny bush. I think you need to tip the ends of the branches in  youth to get it to thicken up. I have some that I just let grow and they were fine for a good 15 years then got very see-through. They are  big shrubs if you don't trim them, roadside electric wire height and still growing.

I like Portugal laurel, Prunus lusitanicus,  it's a nice dark green and less inclined to get bits of die back. Again tall if not clipped

Anyone done any gardening today?

I am organised at sowing time Lesley.

Things get out of hand when they all need pricking out and potting on. The garden needs attention as well and I've not got enough hands.

I've never seen an earthstar either. Plenty of photos but hadn't realised they were as big as that.

I've written labels for the seeds I'm going to sow as soon as I've had another cup of coffee, GH warming up nicely and hopefully compost is thawing
