Not a lot.

Far too cold at the moment and soil saturated from all the rain.

I agree BL. I think hotter colours tend to work better, later in the season. I think it is all to do with changes in light.

A clash can be just as effective as a complementary scheme [ purples and oranges can look great together ]

Probably best in small doses though.

Hi all.

Freezing cold and trying to snow.

No playing outside, so another day studying I think.

Off to London tomorrow morning, so something to look forward to.

I am aware that they can suffer from leaf spot, but am unaware of what if anything you should do.

Sorry not much help.

Identify this shrub if possible?

Almost impossible to say from that photo. Will need to see some leaves when they appear.

Can anyone name this plant?

I agree Dove.

Been freezing today, but lovely and sunny. Spent some time pruning some shrubs, as I could do that without walking on the sodden soil.

OH is applying for a new job, so she got me to check her CV, it was complete gobbledegook to me and she is supposed to be a Communications manager, whatever that is. She is not impressed with my comments

I know nothing about bees, but it seems to me that they manage quite well without our help in the wild, so what harm could a hive do?

If you are going to leave out chocolate biscuits, I may retrain as a plasterer.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Seeds that have been found in archaeological digs from 1000's of years ago have been successfully germinated.

However some seeds will only germinate if fresh.
