Help with remembering plant name?

Try Philodendron Burgundy.

Right that sounds as if I should be OK.  Haven't been soaking them just watering a little every few days.  Mine are in the greenhouse, no real heat just a heater on frost setting.  Fingers crossed.

Good question, I have been watering mine just a little, they aren't showing yet.  Hope they are OK.

The Wire was fabulous, although I did have to have subtitles on as I couldn't understand what they were saying. Certainly one I wished I could watch through fresh eyes.

I also wished I hadn't seen Morse before and Frost. 

I also like Blue Bloods and the Mentalist.

Started Breaking Bad but got distrated, I think it was summer and I spent most of my time in the Conservatory so didn't watch TV.  Might dig it out again.

I also like Luther, the one with the person under the bed was probably one of the scariest things I have seen on TV.

Punkdoc you seem to have had such bad weather this winter.  It's not been too bad here, we've had some good days and feel so lucky.  Of course, not a patch on Verdun's climate

Glad things went OK Dove, another hurdle overcome.

I planted 3 bare rooted plants in the Autumn but no sign yet Verdun.

We used to chase the sunshine in cornwall when we holidayed there when the the children were little.  We stayed in Bodmin and often when it was sunny on one coast it was raining on the other.  We were generally very lucky with the weather and people at work used to ask when I was taking my leave so they could book the same weeks.

Oh heck sorry about the big space.

Afternoon all, Weather here has been good so far but we are supposed to get rain around teatime.  My new Garrya was blown over in the night so had to retread it in and put the stake back up, don't think it has broken, will just have to wait and see.

Hosta what a lovely feeling to pay off that mortgage.  Ours will be paid off in a few years when our interest only stint comes to an end.  We are planning to use father in laws house which was left to hubby when he died a few years ago.  We rent it out at the moment but will need to sell it to pay off the outstanding balance on ours. 

Have been busy in the garden this morning, sown Clary Bouquet Mixed, Cosmos Daydream, Sunflowers Black Magic and Vanilla Ice and Verbena Dwarf Jewels Mixed.  Shelves in Conservatory getting full and so is the greenhouse until I can move some of the slightly tender plants outside into sheltered spots.

Have potted on Aquilegia and Cleome.  Really pleased with the amount of lobelia, Didiscus and Petunia that have germinated moved them off the heat now so they can grow on.

Dove I hope today goes OK for you and your family. 

Verdun haven't watched your latest escapedes yet, will probably save that for later today.

The water was cut off this morning unexpectedly (not because I hadn't paid the bill).  Back on now so its time for a cuppa.
