I would not separate them, as I have often found 2 shoots growing from a single seed.

Hi all.

Long night of discussion with OH, regarding my plans / lack of plans.

She feels I am struggling to find a role for myself since retirement and that I still have a need to do something that makes me feel important.

I am sure she is right, she usually is.

Lovely day here, but I shall mostly be spending it planning.

Have a good day.

Yes of course, but it would be better to pot them up until they are bigger plants, then put them where you want.

Euphorbia myrsinites.

The sap can certainly give you burns, never heard of it producing anaphylactic shock.

Hi all.

Back from the GP's, bit of a waste of time. Simple analgesics advised. tried to explain I had had this virus on and off most of the winter, "well so has everyone else".

Into the garden now for an afternoon of relaxing.

Thanks for the advice re The Yemen, it is going to be a very difficult decision, but I have some time, as needless to say, they are not inundated with people wanting to go.

Obelixx. Harlow Carr has changed a lot over the last few years.

The stream has been widened and the planting in that area is fantastic.
