You can do this GD but they will "sulk" 

can you sow them directly in the ground...get monogerm option....and cover with fleece stretched slightly over them.  upturned pots keep fleece 10 cm or more off them when they germinate, when they are sturdy enough...3 weeks or so...remove fleece.  No thinning either because of the monogerm seed

Nora, I am getting used to is not better though than the old forum style.  I too liked seeing all the threads on one page because it was faster....I could see immediately what threads I would lke to participate in

for me, the edit button, smilies and enlarging pictures are the main points of concern.  Will these be "fixed"?  

Have you got yours yet?

PD,  nobody who knows me would describe me that way 


We obviously clash ...pesonalities/ whatever...but that's all. Don't know why or how.  Don't really care too much

Clearly neither of us wants to leave the forum yet we both have talked of it.  The forum is breaking up anyway with the "old guard".  New people have joined and this will continue. it is a FORUM of several......just a forum

I sent you a pm calling for a truce.....let's post our views and agree to disagree

KEF, I do try....honestly, truly and hands on heart. 

Why cant people see 2 guys getting their "digs" in and laugh or condemn them privately......or ignore them.  It should not  affect anyone else.  I don't take anything personally on the forum.    .I don't read every post here!!! 

I have strong views and express them and there is now a dedicated thread for them......especially on this new style forum people can easily avoid this thread

PD. I posted this morning on this thread and added, without thinking, without ulterior motive,  the "lovely messages".  the two were not linked    

stevo, we can mention everything relevant.  This is our future we are deciding with all the odds, the powers that be and the "elite" trying desperately to keep things as they are for their sakes. Our borders are my main worry too.  Logically, how on earth can we accommodate the numbers trying to get here? 

This is the thread for our views, to express ourselves and do so without being personal. 6 weeks left to do so. 

Have you got yours yet?
