Hello Forkers December

Hi all.

Happy holidays hosta, I hate the whole flying malarkey these days too.

A few more days till I go, looking forward to the lovely spicy smell that you get in large parts of the island.

In case I am not on again today:

Can I wish you all a very happy 2017, with abundant beauty and no pests.

May at least some of your wishes come true.

Thank you for your friendship and support in 2016, you are a bunch of amazing people.

I would also like to hope that some who have left the site this year, decide to come back again.

World peace would be nice, but that may be stretching things a bit.

MSF would like me to go to Yemen in March, which I now have to give some serious thought too.

Who's going to the gym in the new year.

Which hill is that Fairy?

Hi all.

Too cold to venture out.

I can see more b####y mole hills out of the window, I had just cleared the last lot. Looks like the Somme out there.

Hope I am not on the ignore list.

Have to admit that I have complained about some of the very misleading and IMO dangerous medical items that seem to be cropping up on threads again.

I agree flowers, but not half hardies as suggested on the list.

I sow many seeds in late Autumn, to allow them to get a period of cold. I expect those seeds to germinate in the Spring.

Seeds or cuttings for propagation?

However....... if you are perfect, you would not want the risk of inferior offspring, so surely it would have to be division?

Lovely winter's day now, freezing cold, but clear blue sky. Have been sitting outside getting some medicinal sunlight.

OH bought me a weekend in London, with dinner at a posh restaurant for. Something to look forward too after our hols.

I have just read the winter sowing pdf. and it seems very odd that some of the recommended seeds are half hardy annuals and are likely to die using this method.

Most people would suggest sowing Zinnia, Cleome and Cosmos indoors and much later than January.

Enjoying some tropical sun and flowers, to get me in the mood to start when I come home.

Trying to remind myself not to start seed to early, always leads to problems later.

Hi all.

Where is everyone? Am I alone?

Very cold here, temperature down to minus 6 last night.

Hi Edd

Love the humour, hate some of the medical nonsense you still continue to spout on other threads.

I wish you would stop it, some of it is dangerous.
