Hey, you guys, I think you have just set a world record for the number of posts on an individual thread on an single day!!!! . Probably a little bit due to the weather.

I, on the other hand , have just got home from a Burn's night celebration in the pub. a day late, but who's bothered.

Worst Winter ....... .?

Not really much point in getting out into the garden for a bit at least. Experience shows that we will catch up at some point. Remember last March was very, very, cold and we are not even into Feb. yet. I am relaxed.

That was the year I was born and my Mother tells me we were effectively housebound for months? Explains why I am such a shy retiring sort.

Invite all the fit young things in your family. Lay on food and a few bottles, and tools and Bob's your uncle.

Hi Ryan, have you contacted "Plant Heritage" which is the umbrella organisation for the National Collections. Used to be called the NCPPG.  I might be able to help with a contact.

We have an annual "plant sale" in the village so you can donate any spare plants etc. to the Hortsoc, and they sell them for the kitty. This year I will donate my Chrysanths which someone else might give more love and attention to and get better flowers. I have Verbena bo. seedlings rescued from my gravel too.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
