Shopping this afternoon for me, spent a bomb on plants for hanging baskets again, I hope that will be the last lot for now, otherwise OH will kill me! Sky is still grey and foggy, apparently will stay for the rest of the week, p***s me off!

Hi, I think it shouldn't be any problem to plant them out now, if the weather man says there will be a hard frost, cover them with some fleece or newspaper over night. Brassicas are pretty tough.

advice on seed compost

If I were you I would take the rubbish compost back to where I bought it and complain. Perhaps they will replace it with something decent!

Apparently not everyone considers it a weed, I have it in my garden and it doesn't spread very much.


What's the weather like in your area?

Another rainy day here, think I'll just sleep it away like yesterday.

Definitely not unfair GG, but absolutely to the point. This doesn't apply only to the UK either, it's rampant here too and I won't even mention the EU. And the worst of the lot are the so-called "green" boys and girls, most of whom don't practice what they preach!

I must be very oldfashioned because I tie mine together loosly in bunches each year and they flower every year without problems, I even tie smaller bunches in a knot without problems. Just don't tie them so tight that they can't "breathe". Thinking may have changed, but not necessarily always for the better (sorry, Liz). I wonder if those thinkers asked the daffs what they thought?
