This is a great site. I get so board when I can't do anything in the garden because of the weather. I'd be spending all my time scouring the internet for seed bargains (and spending too much money) if I didn't have this web site to read. Thinking about it, it's saved me from the ravages of a compulsive urge to spend money on more plants and seeds, rather than cultivate the things I already have. The urge to buy is a disorder that promises greater plant diversity, but actualy means the market gets to controle the state of the garden. It's the weather, the physical and mental well-being of the gardener, and the requirements of the land that demark the real bounderies of a garden...

And just before she floated away, she rememberd that the rose-seeds sitting soaking on the window ledge for the last 3 days needed putting in soil, so everyone was saved from her mumblings. :lol:

I sympathise, it does, indeed feel like a brick wall sometimes, but one has to be positive in this weather...

I got the rose seeds planted ready for stratifying - you'll be relieved to hear.

When you reply, on the left hand side, it says "View more emoticons." The little green fellow was hiding in there. Very Happy
