One of my SGLillies for you SGL, to help you get through your last days at work.

Lupin seeds do not need pre-soaking.

Personally I would sow them in pots, as seedlings are a magnet for slugs. If you sow now they will be big enough to flower next year.

Now then.

Dove my breakfast order is: all of them please.

Friday must mean curry, so I will bring a selection of fine ales, lagers and cider. Babycham for the ladies?

As for sleeping in amongst the grasses, I blame Dove, getting me drunk.

I feel a bit odd typing this with all the lights turned off, nearly broke my neck walking from the lounge to the study.

Greenhouse Advice

Quite like the new name. I dont have a problem with the annuals getting too leggy. Corflowers I sow in Autumn, tend to be flowering by June, thenones I sow in March, start flowering in July.

Greenhouse Advice

Everything you have mentioned would be fine in the greenhouse. I dont heat mine and use it to over winter cuttings, early seed sowing, protecting slightly tender plants.

It is not just the higher temps. that help, but the protection from wind and rain, which is what kills many plants outside.

I start my hardy annuals in late Feb. / early March, but I also sow some in Autumn and then over winter, and some perennials get sown in winter in the greenhouse. In particular this seems to work very well for Himalayan poppies.

Lets not wait for Fidget to die, lets have a party anyway!

My Mum never wants to spend anything, she always says she wants to leave it to us kids. She always asks me whether it is ok. for her to go on holiday, or if i think it is too expensive.

Hi all. Lovely day here, even the still very active mole is not going to spoil things,

Been creating spaces in the borders, ready for autumn planting. The greenhouse is full of stuff I have grown this year that will need a home.

Fidget, well done on booking the holiday, sounds like a great place for diving.

Dove, hope you have a lovely time with your niece, I am sure she could be trained to iron and perform other household chores.
