Lesley, it is a lovely plant.  Bought one for a friend too at the time amd hers is great.  To be honest, I think this variety needs dry comditions and full sun. 

problems growing echinacea

Cheshunt compound was the solution to damping off but now unavailable.  

Fewer seedlings, plenty of ventilation, good light and careful watering can avoid damping off.  Clean trays and pots too and fresh compost.  Added perlite too helps in my opinion.  

Check for tiny slugs though.....it's the year of the slug/snail....under your trays.

Shaun, looks good.  What plants do you have in mind?  Veg?  Ornamentals?  

Outrageous sexism!!!!!

I identify with your footwear issue Dove.  I found myself walking in circles yesterday but then realised I had my wellingtons on wrong feet.  So relieved   

Live and learn, don't we?  I painted a big L on right boot and a big R on left boot so will never make that mistake again 

..........I'll get my coat shall I?

You paint a lovey picture there Stacey......agapanthus and paddling pool.  

Morning everybody.  Good weather again this morning. 

Will pop into GC soon to return a poorly geranium.  Bought last year it has never exactly thrived ....pink spice......and is increasingly deteriorating.  5 year warranty so change for something else.  Wasn't cheap so expect it to give good value.  Expecting a difference of opinion there but I will win out 

Well, still alive and kicking after my comment yesterday  (tongue in cheek) on the sexism thread.  

Impatient for dahlia twynings after eight to flower.  It stands next to helenium which is opening nicely now and they look pretty good together.  I'm sure, come the weekend, the dahlia will be flowering ........

Heatwave on its way folks..........

Hiya chicky, burncoose is about 8 miles east of me, maybe 10.  Knew them when they were a very small nursery.  

Well done Beaus Mum.  And nice plants 

Outrageous sexism!!!!!
