I agree with Lyn

however, I'm assuming all these plants were outside at the gc when you bought them Dicemanc

Morning folks

Wild, wild weather last night.  No sign of any damage this morning....even my temporary polytunnel was unaffected.  some trees were blown down locally though

japanese gardens are lovely but not for everyone or everywhere.  

Chicky, you have found a home for your snowdrop.   Send it to me

Go to bed?  Go to bed?  I'm going for a run now 

heck!  Sounds very very windy out there.  They reckon it will start to ease off in a couple of hours.

I'll be preparing my veg patch next month to sow seeds in March hopefully.

Hello fairy...and goodbye.

i decided last week to buy no more Plants. I'm a man of determination, resolution and .......I am weak!    Since then I have succumbed.  Now where to put them.  Trouble is my local gc has a sale but nothing I really wanted yet I cannot get one or two out of my mind.  

Heavy rain and strong wind now.  The local radio station has just told us it will get much, much worse ....lovely!   If I survive I will buy the above plants.

a mini tornado hit just a few miles from here last night.  A local house was hit by lightning and some have had tv and routers damaged.  

But spring is on its way folks

A bit late for my liking night garden.  I would have used it last October though.  Can you keep it until next autumn or use it between established veg crops in summer?

Just got back in.  Rain arriving now and wind is picking up.  Think we are all a little nervous about Rachel tonight.  (Any Rachel I've ever known has been very agreeable! )

Benefit of the doubt Cowslip.  As an agitator at times, as a speak first think later kind of guy I regularly say the wrong thing.

it was a good thread though because it clearly displayed a strong unity here and that we are not idle so and so's
