Good morning all, 

I don't post very oftern but try to keep up with you all.

Lovely day yesterday as the wind had dropped and felt really warm.

Went to a car boot yesterday and got two lovely hellebores for £3.80 each. A white speckled on and a purple one. I've never grown them before. I'll go into the wood and get some leaf mould to plant them into and hopefully get some seedlings later on.

Have a lovely day all.

Plants from cuttings

I listened to a garden phone in on the radio and the garden expert said that hormone rooting powder was only useful for about a month after opening. He said it went off really quickly. I never realised that.

Hi all, hope all are warm and dry,

For some reason I can only get on to the last page so don't know if anyone has informed BJay that there is a pattern for a bunny egg cosy in tomorrow's Daily Mail.

Been lazy today, too cold to garden.

Good morning all,

I think I'm growing fins and gills.

Talking about huskies, have you watched the clip on YouTube about the polo bears and huskies playing? (Too much of a dummy to post the link) One of the most incredible things I've seen. The huskies are chained up and the bears are starving waiting for the ice to form so they can hunt. Instead of eating the dogs they play and scientists say the play instinct is stronger than the hunger instinct.

Named Plants

 I grew foxglove 'Pam's Choice' last year. White with a purple throat. I scattered some of the seeds around from last year's plants so I hope they come true but lots of wild foxgloves around.

WEATHER this week

morning all,

We had our summer this time last year. It has rained heavily for more than 24 hours and another day of rain to come here in Cornwall. Feel so sorry for those who's properties are flooded once again. One house in Looe has been badly damaged by a landslide.

Keep warm and dry everyone.

Good Morning ..... :D

Good morning everyone,

Horrible day here but in some ways it's good to have a day off from the garden. I would feel obliged to go out if it was fine  but my back will appreciate a rest.

Joined the local garden group last month and last night's talk was about the restoration of Heligan so really interesting. It's my favourite garden in Cornwall.

Hope you are right Verdun. I think we had our Summer about this time last year then it all went downhill so maybe after such a long winter we will have a decent Summer.

Morning all,

Hope everyone kisses and makes up. I agree that the weather may be to blame for a bit of grumpiness. 

I'm a Tesco Delivery virgin and awaiting my first order between 11am and 1.00pm.

I usually go shopping once a week with my daughter but her car is poorly so thought I'd give the delivery a go. Was so easy even for a dummy like me so I might keep to this way of shopping in future.

There's two greater spotted woodpeckers getting very friendly in the pine trees so they must think it's Spring.
