Anyone done any gardening today?

First evening at my new gardening course yesterday, talking plants for 2 1/2 hours - that must count!

Theoretically.  I listened to BBC Radio Kent Gardening this morning.  Does that count?

Plant for shade

I adore hellebores and have a clump of double white in flower at the moment.  My shady spot is definitely looking brighter, with a few different ferns and will look even better when the crocuses flower.  I watch people's eyes glaze over when I talk 'gardening' to non enthusiasts, but have very long  phone conversations with my sister who is also very keen - she is in Devon and I'm in Kent.

Thank you, Nutcutlet.  I think I'll give it a try.

I need to grow more plants for shade, and Smilacina Racemosa was recommended on GQC by Matthew Wilson recently.  Does anyone grow this or know about it?  All comments very much appreciated.  Patsy

Can anyone identify this weed?

It looks like a Japanese Anemone to me, just like those in my garden.

My son bought me a wormery for Christmas some years ago now from Wriggly Wriggers and it is still in use, although one year it got too cold and the worms died.  Replacing them from Wriggly Wrigglers was hugely expensive, but I read that you could buy them cheaply from a fishing tackle shop, which I did, and they're performing really well, making large quantities of liquid fertiliser.  I think I'll make another one using Edd's recommendations.

Me too.  I recommend the film; I thought he was very good in the part.

So do I.  Did you see him in 'Mr Turner'?  There are numerous voices I'd like to put into Room 101, particularly the ones that shout and speak so quickly you haven't a clue what they're saying.

Isn't the voiceover for Wickes Timothy Spall?
