dizzi, i also cant wait to get in the garden. filled seed trays and pots today, they are now warming in the heated propagator in the kitchen. sowing lupins, the slugs ate them all last year....sweetpeas will be sown in the greenhouse, after soaking the seeds i plant them in toilet roll tubes. have black cherry and black russian tomato seeds to sow. not grown these before so fingers crossed...

That toilet roll tube idea for seeds is an excellent idea, I did it years ago and had forgotten, now I must remember to keep them out of the recycling.

Jean Report 11 Feb 2013 23:41

lolly, toilet roll tubes filled...roll on spring and maybe a nice summer for a change.

Problem for me is space, last time I propagated early the flat above mine was empty and I was able to use every windowsill and even set up a workbench.

OH being a hoarder I now have no available space indoors or out so have to wait for warmer weather to get started :-(

My greenhouse doubles up as George Rabbits winter quarters, all lined with bubble wrap, my kitchen windowsill is full.

These months till spring are miserable, my large back garden seems to turn into a squidgy mess, the path is so slippery that I venture onto it as seldom as I can. I fear a fall further aggravating my already aching arthritic joints.

As has been said 'Roll on Spring'. The bulbs my Grandson planted for me in the front garden are coming up (planted a little deep :-D), so perhaps Spring is not too far away.
