    If you really are a man and you're anything like my father-in-law (87 this year) the answer is 'You will probably never learn' imageimage

    He's had all his hanging baskets pots etc outside in position for the last 10 days - in Yorkshire - again. 

    Many years he has to replace some if not all of them because they get frosted.

    Does he learn? - never - not in the 30 years I've known himimageimage (Love him to bits thoughimage)

    See original post

     Absolutely none intendedimage

    One year I will -  I definitely, definitely will - remember to tie in the clematis on the back fence before it forms a huge birds' nest - and I will stake the delphiniums before they start to flop - and I will do successional sowings of salad leaves - and I will....

    One year I will learn tooimage

    Hazel thx and yes they are toms , I potted one on that was similar size but it had hardly any roots , so I'll leave them a bit . To be honest I don't hold much hope for them , they're a foot and a half tall but the bottom leaves are dying and falling off , lesson learned image

    This is my first year growing from seed and i went a bit crazy image literally plants everywhere, my wife says our house may as well be a greenhouse haha 

    Oh well at least the dahlias will be planted out later!

    Definitely not just a man thing. My window ledges are covered, upstairs and down image the dining table is pushed as close to the window as possible and also covered in goodies. Husband thinks I'm a loon (but he hasn't complained about eating his tea off his lap infront of the telly box!! image)

    started taking them outside today- what an effort! Who needs a gym membership hey! 10 days or so and all being well normality will be resumed! Fingers crossed

    That's great news Keenie , just this minute took some plants out but it's blowing a gale and it's freezing swear I could hear the plants shouting " are you mad ! get me back indoors " image
