Beautiful pink and yellow. Is that a primrose?

It's going to look great - so much promise there! Take photos of the transformation if you remember.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 21/02/2015 at 19:49

Is there any hope for etiolated sweet peas?

A beginner, I planted some seeds indoors a couple of weeks ago, without realising the importance of direct light. I put them in a cold frame yesterday, but will they recover? Some of them had reached about 6 inches tall.

Should I just start afresh with new seeds? Thanks in advance.

Some great stumperies here! Last night I went in search of that episode of Great British Garden Revival last night online. Really enjoyed it. Thanks for the inspiration. Am tempted to have a go at the bottom of the garden.

Growing tomatoes

Thanks for those Simon. I'm watching them now. I'm going to plant tomato seeds for the first time this year, so they're really helpful.

Battery Powered Lawn Mowers

I wouldn't recommend them for a really large lawn. Two charged batteries weren't enough to finish the job. Mine was a Bosch cordless. It would be fine for a small lawn though. I've switched to a petrol one now. 

Winter pansies

Thanks for all your comments and advice! In the end, I ordered some winter pansies online ( - would use again) - went for a red and white theme.

I went for larger flowers, as I prefer them in winter. I thought they'd be more low-maintenance. However, thanks for all advice about violas - I had never come across them before, but will definitely get some in the spring. I love the idea of an orange/yellow combo.

Thanks Dove, I was just about to pop back on and correct myself  - I realised I was mistaken. So many pretty flowers to choose from!

Is it too late to buy them (online) and plant them?
