Thanks Daniel, will keep the link to watch future programmes.

What's the weather like in your area?

A lovely warm day here in Lancashire. I managed a couple of hours in the garden after work. Planted up 3 bags of spuds, a wee bit late but hopefully will get a really good staggering of spuds when it come's to harvest time. Cut and edged the lawn.  Planted out the first of my sweetpea to climb up a bird table pole, they've been in pots since last October.

After providing more of a varitey of feed to the birds, they come daily. I had greenfly on my clemantis last week but the birds have taken care of them.

Hi, just wanted to say I like the site, I've been coming on for quite some time and get regular e-mails just haven't posted on the forum or threads. . I love the mag and first port of call are the free offers, none received have been disappointing. Also like 'What to do now' section but it's all a good read and wouldn't be complete without tales from Titchmarsh.    

I've migrated from the BBC site and the only thing missed will be the TV link- Iplayer. Gardener World and Beech Grove are two programmes I enjoy watching but are on at a bad time to watch in real time. Some what off topic but do you do  links...

Talkback: Grow something different

Posted: 20/04/2012 at 21:29

I've sown some snake gourds for my friends children. They love it in the garden and thought it would be nice for them to see the plants grow then paint the snakes after they had dried. I've 5 seedlings producing their true leaves but not really sure how many snakes are going to grow on each plant or what to do next. Will they grow out in the garden or should they be grown in the GH. I'm thinking 2 snakes each child to paint so want at least 6 snakes. Tips would be welcome.

Home from home, there's even a weather thread. Recognised the chickens, Geoff, your identity was never going to be a secret for long.

Agree the smilies are a tab bit scary but good news about posting pics

We had snow only a couple of weeks ago, powow, on the other side of the county, really odd weather for this time of year.

Looked like it was going to get out nice this morning but has been dull and wet in this part of Lancashire. Peas are going out at the weekend regardless of the forcast, if left any longer they are likely to go to the garden in the sky so nothing to lose.
