Me too

It's not picky, it's necessary if you're public transporting

If you plant 3 the sameyou're making a clump of one form, overlapping adds substance. If you plant 3 different an overlap looks a mess

Seed compost

I use a mix of seed/MP/grit when I have the choice.

I think lots of people don't use seed compost judging by the difficulty I have getting it sometimes. 

I prefer not to use MP for those seeds I'm sowing in autumn and leaving outside. It's too soggy. But for quick germinators I think it's fine.

I don't think you HAVE TO anything Nick. You have a choice. Do some experiments, see what works for you

cyclamen for you  4thPanda?

Don't worry about a bag, I'll have them well bagged up. I'm coming in landgirl's car and I'll be more respectful of that than I am of my own 

No loose plants with dirt falling off 

Shrub identification please

What can I start sowing now in an unheated greenhouse

Loads of hardy perennials can be sown in winter. They don't need heat. I'm beginning to worry that some of mine won't get the necessary chill.

Stacey, reyour seedlings. I think a bit of trauma promotes growth. Early on here, I'd planted a few laurels by the roadside. The one that did best was the one that was broken when the electricity board did some tree work.

Snowdrops 30-40% out yesterday so I think we're pretty much on target for next weekend. That's another 10 days away
