Afternoon all.

Still grey and cold here, and the snow is not disappearing very fast.

Finally bit the bullet, cranked up the propagator, and have sown my first lot of seeds. Salvia patens and Salvia farinacea. Problem at this time of year, is that there is so little going on, that I will look at them everyday, and worry about them germinating.

It does not matter how many years I have been gardening, I still worry about whether my seeds will germinate.

I agree with less lawn Yvie. It is most unusual for me not to have extended, or made a new bed this year, but there is still time.

Its only Sheffield, but we live right at the foot of the moors, so we tend to get really heavy snowfalls. I think it will be another week before it goes, if it ever warms up.

My lawns are still covered with snow.

Can certainly agree with you Edd, on the Munros in winter. When slightly? younger I managed the odd one or two. Their beauty when snow covered in unsurpassable.

Hope you get stuff sorted. It is easy to say, but stubbornness has never caused me anything but heartache.

Talking of Munros where is Fairy?

Evening all.

We did visit the Nutmeg factory, and the smell was great, made me quite woozy, in a nice way.

Loving all the signs of plant shopping, it gives me the perfect excuse........ well if they are all buying plants, then I should be too!!

Home alone tonight, so pizza and red wine.

Have fun everyone.

Remove box hedging?

I think the idea of making fewer, larger beds, makes a lot of sense.

They are wonderful, I would keep them, whatever the consequences.

A few pictures from Grenada trip

Hope they help you start thinking about sunnier days.

The first picture is the Tamarind tree we sat under most of the time, it was at the boundary of the hotel grounds and the beach.
