Agree lily.  good idea

Parsley

Posted: 04/02/2016 at 22:32

Parsley is deemed difficult to germinate.  

However I rarely have a problem. I sow seed in a pot, lightly cover with compost. pour boiling water into a dish and stand the pot in it.  Cover with seed packet and stand in kitchen until germination. for me this is pretty quick.  A week to 10 days.  A week or so later I move to unheated gh. Prick out later into trays.  Then into 9 cm pots.  Then out in the garden.

I think it is a tad early right now though.....prefer to wait another fortnight or so 

why successional sowing though?  I find plants provide all summer 

What/Where have all my snowdrops gone?

Dannyson, doing well for me.  Not far from cornish coast too, prob further west?  

It has been a freakishly wet autumn and winter. There will be casualties. Time will tell.

perhaps they are simply later this year for you........

bulbs are notoriously difficult to grow......in the green is the only way I think.

THESE NEW PART TWO THREADS NORA

Posted: 04/02/2016 at 20:23

these newly "unelected" part 2 threads are now designated as being yours NORA.  Why is this?  The author of any and every thread should continue with the acknowledgement of the original author.  

At least 2 threads are now affected.  

If you can copy the title of a thread you can copy the author's name 

what is the view of forum members?
