What new seeds will you be trying this year?

Posted: 12/01/2016 at 12:08

I was thinking of trying bananas this year, fidget, why do you think they did not grow?

Am also thinking of trying some different Salvias, although as usual, I only add to my list, I never seem to remove any that I have grown in previous years. I need more window sills.

I like Chard as an ornamental too, the dark form of Cavolo Nero also looks lovely in the flower borders.

It's my birthday

Like many of you I expect, I am frantically studying the seed catalogues, wondering which new plants I might grow this year.

What new plants are you considering?

Morning all.

Very cold here, sounds like hail on the windows.

Looking forward to my dose of sun.

I have been thinking { probably too much time on my hands ], there seems to have been a slight under current of unpleasantness on the forum over the last few days. Why do we think this is, and what should we do, if anything?

Hope all the poorly start to improve.

Evening all.

Introspective day, listening to DB music, and remembering what I was doing when various records came out.

I was a medical officer at his concert at The Milton Keynes Bowl, can't remember when. I was covering the front few rows, great views of the man.

Love most offal, and all sea food.

Hope all the poorly are getting better.

Which subjects............

I love this forum, it is very important to me and I care about it, and the people that I feel I know.

I don't like to admit it, but probably as a result of my being ill, I don't have many non virtual friends any more, so this place becomes occupies a large part of my life.

I don't think any subject should be taboo, but we should try and avoid attacks on other members.

Verdun and I, plus I suspect a few others enjoy a bit of a "stir", which can cause upset where not actually intended, and we need to think about that.

Sadly we do occasionally come across genuinely unpleasant people [ I received two very unpleasant PMs yesterday ], just as in "real" life. There is nothing we can do about this, except try and support those who nee it.

Sorry if this is a bit rambling, but as others have said, it can be difficult to fully explain things in print.

The sniper in the brain, regurgitating drain

Incestuous and vain

and many other last names

I look at my watch is says 9.45

and I think oh my god I am still alive.


There is another verse I love, but I expect many of you know why I am not reproducing it on this thread!

Hello all.

Cold and wet again.

A day of mourning and playing music loudly for me today.
