The seeds, when green and flowers are nice on a salad.

We were e-mailed on Friday to say anyone showing a works ID card at The Body Shop could get a 50% discount until 4th Dec. No points for guessing who went into The Body Shop this morning 

What are your favourite native flowers?

I like going for walks and seeing wildflowers in hedge rows although many are probably weeds which I wouldn't want in my garden and I can only name but a few... . buttercups and daisy's spring to mind...

Gg- I'll still have the shed with no door, the one I'm taking down might fall down before Springand I'll have help with the other jobs.

Wish we had a gardening club near here, there are sometimes talks at Betham Nursery, they are usually mid week though and there was a talk at the local park last week about pruning fruit tree's and caring for them but I was working  

 

to plant or not to plant...

I read somewhere the shortest day is a good time to plant shallots, me thinks it's either the 21st or 22nd December but that would depend on the weather...if the ground's frozen.,..it isn't going to happen...and I haven't planted that early before...but...there's always a first time...it will be interesting to read what other posters think...

I've some garlic and onions still to go out but think it may now be to late for the onions...

I like digging too there's a feel good factor when you look back over what you've dug and see how much better it looks without weeds...

Does anyone have a 'to do list' for over winter?

On my the list is to take down old shed and put in a fence where the shed was. Replace fence at top of plot and make a compost area. Make more paths, with bricks I've piled up and put in some path edging with branches from a cut down tree.

Order seeds too although I've loads spare from this year. Thought I'd try pumpkins next year.

  

Trusted chilli seed suppliers?

obelixx-I've not tried Plant World Seeds before, they look to have a good selection of seeds at reasonable prices....Zoomer adds them to her 'favourites' list...

Gg you are probably right about making a door, thing is it's a home made shed and the door way is about 4ft by 7ft. Me thinks a lockable box inside might be a compromise

Teddy bear is another nice sunflower and Velvet Queen.
