Hiya Matty.  That is so sad.  My own dog is 11 and the thought of losing him is terrible.

good lovely memories though ?

Hiya Wills, yes keep turning plants when growing.    What plants are they are?  Plants shouldn't be growing much, if at all, over the winter.

Hello forkers

dry, sunny but feeling cooler.  Looks like gardening weather.

a few Linum perenne seeds sown yesterday..........although Linum survives over winter here a fresh supply makes for a better show.  Not many better blues

Leggy usually because light locally is denied.  Forced rapid growth through soft living. Most plants should be pinched back when very young and at least a couple times more to encourage bushyness.  Good all round light helps balanced sturdy growth.  Leggy just means thin, lanky soundly growth.  I always grow plants to be sturdy and bushy even though it means often later flowering 

Any other dodos out there?

Been a pretty good day here.  Some sun, not too cold.  Gazanias still flowering.....they flowered throughout last winter too.

in my haste to do some garden work done in limited time today, at 100 mph,  I dug up a perfectly looking silver swan euphorbia and destroyed it.  A bit more care and it would have lifted and been replanted it is just roots and no football.  It won't regrow.....took cuttings though.  A waste of time and plant.  

Any other dodos out there?
