turning air into soluble nitrate to feed garden??

I think that if it did work you would find that in certain States in the USA, where nearly all rain storms are accompanied by lightening they would be producing the fertilisers for the rest of the world.

Secondly the cost of copper would far outweigh a lifetimes worth of fertiliser.

Nice idea though.

Yes, the shoots coming off from the leaf axils can be used for cuttings.

Something to plant now for the kid

Some Spring flowering bulbs might be nice, if she can wait that long to see the flowers. Daffs. can be planted  now.

I think Fg. has a good idea with Buddleia. It is for a good reason they are known as the butterfly bush, and there are now a number of dwarf cultivars.

Potted plants for winter?

Ornamental cabbages. Some people hate the look of them, but I find them attractive, and they change colour with the frosts.

Steephill  is right. Rhodes leaves contain a substance that inhibits growth of nearby plants.

Morning all. Wet and miserable here, but I am celebrating first win of season [ sorry about your lot OL ]

Looks like we are about to have 25000th post on this thread, it could be me.

Have a lovely day eveyone, not sure what I am doing yet.

2 seaters are totally impractical, cant buy compost, unless I borrow OHs car, same with plants, so this limits me to times she is around.

However, the joy of having the roof down, your shades on and tunes blaring out of the stereo is a sure cure for a mid life crisis, not that I am having one of course. Where is my leather jacket?

Morning all, grey and miserable here.

mann flu has abated, so i am out attacking things in the garden. Its funny how at this time of year I always start finding all the things I dont like, rather than enjoying the good bits, so I have to start moving things and chucking away things.

OL, I am another one with a two seater soft top.

Enjoy the wedding Clari, and have a good day everybody.
