Morning all. We seem to have had a gale during the night, the garden looks like a herd of Wildebeast have been through the garden. Now it is very autumnal out there, with mist and a fine drizzle.

Dove, like the idea of a shiny black door, just like 10 Downing street.

Have a good day folks.

Morning all.

Foggy and miserable here.

SM. done, so I am going to sit in the greenhouse potting on Salvia cuttings taken last month.

Have a good day everyone.

Wont go without a fight....

It will soon be in the garden, digging up your plants and delivering them to me. Resistance is futile!

Just been cheered up by a family of Long Tailed Tits, flitting around one of the feeders.

Nature and gardens are without doubt good for the soul.

Morning all.

Not as grey today and certainly warmer, hopefully may try a little horizontal weeding.

So sorry about the roof KEF, I don' t believe in capital punishment...... but then again.

Hope things are going better Yvie.

I like my plants like me, a bit frayed around the edges, or just plain shabby!

Lou, are there any plants you do like?

Not a fan of Begonias, except some of the modern, small flowered varieties.

Morning all. Grey, cold and mizzly again.

Struggling to motivate myself at the moment, bad back and bad weather are keeping me inside.

My problems seem so minor compared with some others on here, I wish you better days.

Canna seedpods

You can sow them, but they are not ripe as Nut says. You need to wait until the seed heads are brown and starting to burst, the seeds will be almost black.

I find they very rarely ripen in my garden, although they are easy to grow from bought seed and will often flower in the first year.

I find you need chip the seeds, then soak for 24 hours, in order to get them to germinate.
