magnolias flowering in numbers down here signal that spring has arrived in Cornwall.  The earliest they have ever flowered.  Caerhays Castle, famous for  magnolias, has today declared Cornwall is open for the spring...spring has come today. 

Must admit today at times has felt like that

The gardeners world forum site.  No great feat Hazel. Delete the whole thing and start again with settings etc

Lyn is also right about powering off and rebooting.  Digital stuff seems to "choke" now and then and this often reaolves it.

is it just me but isn't Lyn a bit of a wise old bird?  Ha ha

Sounds good to me Jomilton .  Spring has a habit of catching us on the hop and surging ahead.  Preparation is key 

lettuce tips?

Red lettuce is a big no from me.  never had a tasty red variety yet.  Sorry Steve, it's all about taste not appearance for me.

little gem is great.  I also grow varieties like Saladdin and Lakeland for the summer

how about growing baby beetroot there too Marc?  There you go, you have your red colouring. Baby turnips too. And some decent spring onions ....not those wishy washy white lisbon but Guardsman or Laser that remain upright. 

Important to move your lettuce around a bit though....regularly replanting the same spot with lettuce throughout the growing season is likely to attract pest, disease and reducing vigour.
