Morning all  we've got 3-4 inches of snow this morning here in Merseyside. Looks pretty but oh the disruption it cause....

Hubby & I will have to brave it and go to clear the drive and paths at our daughter's (she's disabled and unable to do it herself) Luckily he's at home today after working away all week...oh there is a god 


 Right, off to get the wellies and snow shovel. Speak to you all later.

Ok thank you Rosa for that...so do you cut them down at all in the spring? I have another grass which I know the name of and the care instructions suggest to cut it down in the spring to encourage new growth and just wondered if this was the case with all or most of them. Perhaps I should put this question out in the plants forum to see if anyone has any further advice. You never know we both could learn something about our plants

Morning Brumbull, morning Dove, well I've got a busy one today. Off to the supermarket to do the weekly shop and then to see my daughter.Got lots of paperwork to do this afternoon which I'm really not looking forward to!

Peering outside I can see the sun trying to come out...it's looking pretty pleasant out there but I bet it flipping cold

Oh I know Brian and I am very thankful and in all honesty I wouldn't know what to do with a huge garden so I'll be content with what I've got and make the best I can of it and who know perhaps later this year I'll be posting photos of by beautiful garden

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
