Hi folks,

KEF Sorry to hear about hubby hope he feels better soon. 

BL Its a real shame about your rescued moggy but as everyone else has said at least he had you to look after him at the end.

Clari must have missed the bit about your pants, I'm sure they will turn up eventually, but where is the question

Dove I'm with you on the council tax.  I'd rather pay a bit more and get good services than save a couple of quid and find that libraries and day centres have to close. 

Lesley Hope your mum is OK, if you hadn't planted the pansies she would probably have fallen trying to put them in herself. But then that would still have been your fault.  My mum has a way of making me feel guilty without ever blaming me for anything, I just don't know how she does it.

A bit dull and dismal here but it's looking like it might brighten up later.  Havent been in the garden for a couple of days.   Have plants to put in but just don't feel like it. 

Hope miners have a good day.

It's my birthday

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Dont coddle David, they are in a cold greenhouse and I am keeping the door open until frosts are forecast.  Had to shut it during the windy weather but all is calm now here.

Hi David, just wondered how often you water sweet peas once they have germinated. 

Monty don new series

Really like the new Moty programme.  I like the fact that the gardeners create their own garden from their own designs but with the support of an expert.  They must learn a tremendous amount along the way and experience real highs and lows.  I think the fact that they have been involved in the creation of the garden rather than just walked  in and seen it all done will make them love the garden even more.  I must say Monty isn't scared of getting his hands dirty.

Hi Folks, sweet peas have all germinated, Hurrah. Took around 12 days so a bit quicker than expected. 

Not grown them from seed before, so if there is anything I should be doing now please let me know.

Forgot to mention that as a treat for helping out with grandchildren, firstborn got tickets for Blood Brothers in Birmingham for Monday night, even bought me a box of Chocs to go with. 

Didn't mention that it was on the school minibus with 11 Fourth year boys!

Still, I did have a good time and quite enjoyed being called Miss all evening.

Hi BM,  Plants for shade have got back to me and identified Warleysense as the stronger looking plant.  They apologised and said that if any of the plants didn't thrive in the spring they would replace.  Can't say fairer than that. 

Acutally BM, I'm really enjoying the massages now.  Only a few little spots are still painful and the experience is really relaxing.  Have to say if I had the money I'd have one every day, but at £40 quid a pop that's not going to happen.  I've cut down to one a fortnight now.

I have a Rose of Sharon (hypericum) and have never split it although its a very hardy plant , some see it as a bit of a weed.  I dont think you will have a problem but I'm sure someone will come on here and tell you.
