What is your weather like? (2)

Mild and drizzly this morning. Wind is starting to increase now. The fields are well and truly waterlogged. Our local reservoir is still low, they've applied for a drought order so that they can pump water from the rivers to fill it. At the moment it makes perfect sense as the rivers are bursting the banks, but with the speed of bureaucracy it will be summer before it takes place, then the rivers will be in danger of running dry!

They would need a temperature of between 13 to 18 °C for consistent germination which is a bit of an ask in an unheated greenhouse during January. You could start them off indoors and then move them to a greenhouse as soon as they've germinated. Alternatively wait until early March and they will be fine sown in a cold greenhouse.

He's a very content looking fella Puzzle. We had to do a double take on a recent dog walk, we were doing a regular route through some woods when we spotted a guy up front. We thought at first he had 2 small dogs, as we got closer one turned out to be a cat, walking merrily along with the dog.

Wet and windy and very muddy paths equals a soggy, mucky dog .

Valuable opinions requested

We bought some from a Penstemon specialist grower at Wisley plant fair last year. Her main advice was do not cut them back until the spring.
