bad day

Sorry to hear that Graham. It's been a nasty old day weather wise. Hope you manage to salvage some of your plants.

I'd love to have seen that Topbird!

Ive got a tiny cutting in a pot outside and my cat goes straight to it for a good sniff and five minutes of madness!

Anyone done any gardening today?

Oooo Fruitcake, Chickens!! What are they like? How long have you had them? Are they easy to keep?

I'd love an allotment. I have images of a cosy shed, and a kettle.....and cake!?!

Selling plants for charity

I agree with Marion. You can buy little trays of small plug plants at the moment. Pot them on and you can make a healthy profit.  Maybe some geraniums (pelagoniums) or  busy lizzies.  Chilli plants are also good sellers but I struggle with germination. Cosmos are also a good one.

great cause. Hope it's a success for you.

If you scrape the top thin layer of bark, is it fleshly and white/green? If not then those branches may well have died.  Its still a tad early though, and I'd be inclined to see if any buds pop out towards the end of spring.
