Thanks Brumbull and fairygirl for the advice re my geranium cuttings.I'm actually feeling a ikle bit smug at the minute because I took the cuttings in the way you suggested Brumbull except I didn't cover them with a bag but I'll get onto that straight away  just goes to show what you pick up reading these boards.

 You know you lot may very well make a gardener out of me yet

Rosa carriola you posted a picture on page 4 of this thread of a carex. I have one of these and it has got far too big. Can they be divided? Also I've noticed lots of little plants around the big one. Are these plantlets and can I dig them up and pot them up? Also do you cut them dowm in spring?

If anyone else cares to look back at the picture of Rosa carriola's carex on page 4 and can answer my question I'd be very grateful. Thank you

Oh my word Lilylouise your garden is absolutely beautiful...inspirational even! You have so many flowers in a retatively small space at the front. It has inspired and given me lots of ideas for my garden. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

Hmmmm must go and buy more seeds tomorrow.... I'm sure if I shuffle things around a bit I can squeeze a few more seed trys in somewhere....

Ah welcome back Brumbull  I was so upset last night to read you weren't going to post again and as a result I was determind to carry on posting here to keep it try to keep the thread going. This was the first general chit chat forum I'd joined in and never in my wildest dreams could I imagine it would come to an abrupt end purely because of a word used in the title 

Anyway today I've taken some cuttings from two geraniums I'd put in the garage in the Autumn. Not sure if it's the right time or if I've done it right but hey ho I'll soon find out wont I? My logic was that things are starting to spring into life and I thought now probably is a good time to do it. As I've said before I'm a novice at this gardening milarkey but enjoying finding out what works and what doesn't

My garden is quite small and as it was a new build when we moved here 19 years ago all that's in it and how it looks is down to me, except for the pond, which is my husband's pride & joy so I leave that completely to him.

I've only taken a big interest in gardening over the past couple of years so because I understand a little bit more about what I'm doing now lets just say it's a working progress and is evolving nicely, even if I do say so myself

Violas or pansies. Which is superior?

Posted: 20/03/2013 at 08:54

I much prefer violas because of their daintyness. Pansies are "a bit in your face" for me

Morning all. Not seen the forcast for today yet but looking outside there's no frost and it's dry although a little dull so I'm going to get my work done then hopefully put my new mini green house together and sow my chilli & sweet peppers. Have a good day everyone x

Flippin well said Brian! Couldn't have said it better myself and I for one will be posting here again tomorrow and I hope not to be the only one.

I don't give a jot what the thread is called but what I do know is that when it first started this morning I quite liked the feel of what it was all about and where it was going and felt it was something I'd like to contribute to and to be honest I'm astonished it has cone to this!
