If you were to buy yourself 3 plants for Christmas...

I am sure you already know this, but Protea seed need to be smoked to aid germination. In the wild they germinate after fire has burnt all the vegetation.

I think it might be possible to buy a smoking solution.

hellebores and camellias

Agree with Obelixx re Hellebores, except for H.niger where I would not remove the leaves.

I know some people do, but I only remove the leaves on the orientalis cultivars.

Came Valley sparkling is worth a try steephill, although I may like it because I have usually drunk it overlooking the sea, somewhere in Cornwall.

Just back from a little walk on the moors. Glorious sunshine, but very cold. Most of the boggy bits frozen, which makes walking a lot easier.

I have a nice Rhone which would go well with that Dove.

What I think is great, is that we are managing to have an adult discussion, without falling out, which was my worry starting this thread.

Hi all.

Gloriously sunny with a very sharp frost, looks more like snow on the ground.

Plan to get some real sunlight today, rather than the light box. A short walk should cool me down!

Did anyone hear the 2 experts debating the authenticity of a new Beethoven manuscript, on the Today programme, made some of our arguments on various threads, sound very tame.

Keep going DD, you will get there.

Don't think damping off if that height and no longer in covered.

More likely mice or slugs.

I have read about this fidget, but the report from which I copied the map, suggested that the destruction in some areas is so great, that there is not enough coral left to make evolution a realistic option.

Is El Nino affected by man?
