Cosmos seedlings

As they cannot go out until after the last frost, you could easily wait til April to sow, especially in Scotland.

shrub ID please

Morning all, I regularly drive through Glagow on the M8, on the way to the Northwest. Once through Glasgow and onto the Erskine bridge I feel the holiday has started.

Cold and grey here, done the supermarket. Might sow some seeds later.

Just done supermarket and was feeling very grumpy, so had some good head banging music on, Nevermind by Nirvana.

I think that you have sown too early and with not enough light. If I were you I would start again in a few weeks time and start them off on a windowsill. They need lots of light.

Todays weather has had me singing Four Seasons in one Day, by Crowded House. I have a horrible feeling tomorrow might be Frosty the Snowman !

Agree with KEF, second one is an oriental poppy. Could be nice they come in a variety of colours.

Well, what a day it has been here; rain, hail, sun and wind. Tried to do a bit outside, but spent more time running in to shelter.

Thankyou for printing the letter Bill, it has certainly made me think.

They are almost impossible to weed out, as they have brittle tubers, which nearly always leave bits behind. The only way I am afraid, is chemical. Also you must prevent them from seeding, so remove the flowers.

Yes, I love Dancing in the Dark, with the video when he gets a young Courtney Cox out of the audience to dance with him on stage.
