Love the look of that market Obelixx, and some of my favourite foods too. I do love the French.

Your weather sounds fab Liri. Scotland in the sun is the best place on earth.

However long I garden for, I am always itching to sow seeds and still often sow at inappropriate times.

I have not learnt the lesson yet.

If you were to buy yourself 3 plants for Christmas...

I am aiming to make my tropical border more jungle like next year, so I would like: a Tetrapanax, a Paulownia and some more Colocasia.

Hi all.

Feeling very down this morning, winter blues. Managed to force myself outside and hacked back a few trees and shrubs [ it would be exaggerating to say prune ] and the exercise has made me feel much better.

Off for a long soak in the bath and looking forward to a roast chicken stuffed with garlic and lemons.

Climate Change?

NO, I am not starting this thread to start a punch up.

BUT, I was thinking whilst I was removing part of a large clump of C.lucifer, how times have changed.

When I planted the first clump 20 years ago, they were regarded as not completely hardy in the North. The original clump has been divided many times and they have survived some very harsh northern winters.

Is this climate change?

August seems early to me.

I sow mine in October, in seed trays kept outside. After potting on they are ready to go into their final positions in April.

It sounds as though they might have been sown too early. They are hardy, so if it were me, I would plant them out now.

Evening all.

Very sunny here today, but it was a looking and planning day, rather than a doing day. Surprised how much is still flowering.

Early evening G@T being consumed, then a pork stir fry for supper.

Not a SCD fan so hope to find a movie to watch tonight.
