    Hmmm.. My seed tray rack arrived (a day late). trouble is the 15 seed trays supplied have no holes in. Either I replace them all and use them as gravel trays, or I get the drill out.image

    My first lot of seeds are sprouting ....... I am ridiculously excited image

  • Beware the sneaky seedaholics. These are the afflicted who don't buy packets of seed like the rest of us. No, they buy all the gardening macs with free packets of seeds. Their families never realise their loved one has a problem, they just think he/she likes to keep up to date with the latest trends in gardening.

    Watch out for the phantom seedaholics.

    When we were in Newhaven my OH left me in the GC and went off to buy new tyres for the car and returned 1 1/2 hours later to find me still staring at the packets of seeds, near where he'd left me.

  • I too have to admit to being a seedaholic, I have them stored in lots of odd places around the house. My kids roll their eyes when they come round for dinner and find a section of my cutlery draw partitioned for seeds, mind you, they dont mind taking away the excess plants for their gardens once I have lovingly nurtered them!


    I would be more than happy to donate some seeds for those unfortunate peoples whos gardens have been flooded.

    Hello, I'm not a seedaholic yet, but I certainly have seeds from magazines that I can never bring myself to throw out.  I'd happily donate those to the somerset levels cause.  Is there an address yet to send them to, or should I just keep an eye out on this post ?

    Peanuts and Windsong - there is a special thread set up for helping those with flooded gardens ( think it is actually called "help for those with flooded gardens") - they are trying to set up collection and distribution centres. Take a look image

  • We'll I'm also a seedaholic! I confess and I want no therapy thanks, in fact I've just got my first allotment today and can't wait to buy even more! I have however just sown some Aubergine seeds which are 8 years old what's the chances? Slim to none of germination but couldn't resist trying! I'm also having anew greenhouse erected next week and as I've been without for 2 years I'm ridiculously excited!! I've got so far 3 types of toms, cucs, chillies and peppers! All in various stages of seedlings!! image

    You have to do what's most important to you Mike, but a house survives a long time with very  little housework believe me. 

    Quality of life has to be more important than a pristine house, I'll take my seeds and plants and wildlife and enjoy them.

    If you spend most of your time in the garden, who's  in the house messing it up? image
