nicotiana sowing

That's fine. Dave's right about the nicotiana sold as bedding plants. Sylvestris is perennial and hardier.  All mine are species and seed true.

I grow N. sylvestris, affinis and langsdorffiana (spelling?). I shall be sowing any time now. I've never had self sowing but I do get over-wintering by N. sylvestris.

I sow in pots in the cold GH

It might be worth investing in a cheap pruning saw

This sort of thing, you'd get one pretty cheaply from a GC or DIY place

If you have the tools I'd take it down much lower than that as Mrs Garden suggests

I love my newts

Today's first is head-banging from the woodpeckers. I think it's the greater spotteds though we have both.

And we set the first moth trap of the season last night

16 Common Quakers, 22 Clouded Drabs, 1 Dotted Border

Also a micromoth, Agonopterix alstromeriana. This last is not a first sighting, they hibernate in the woodshed and come into the house on the logs in winter

Down the back and tail chicky. Shows more when they're swimming but my photography is up to that

can be a lot of time,especially for a large file. I reduce mine or it takes forever. I don't know what a megabyte is but I get the photos down to 1MB.
