I grow them every year outside in a sheltered, sunny border, plus tumbling toms in a hanging basket.  They don’t crop as heavily as they would in a greenhouse but three or four plants are enough to keep us going.

Glad I got the nasturtiums cleared before tonight's frost - they go really unpleasantly slimy

Well, all the walnut leaves have made Earth and most are bagged/ have been whisked off; couldn't resist a few handfuls in the brazier for atmosphere. Surprising number of flowers blooming.

Looking at the garden today, Bertie. The grass appears to be growing still! Not surprising, given the rain and surprisingly high temperatures. Happily it is too wet to be tempted to mow.

Yes, our grass is growing slowly but it’s going to need a cut in February if it stays mild. But it’s also like a swamp in places again after the copious amounts of rain recently.


On walnut leaves, I cleared the last of them earlier this month. If I don’t then they just blow all over the place.

Evening Roger. Quite right about the growing season extension- and the next few days look to promise max temps around 15C and minima between 10 and 14- akin to early May; quite remarkable but a sign of the times I suppose. Goodness knows what poor roots will be triggered into shooting!


As for the lawn, ours is a sorry sight (ref to Gandalf's post- a bog in places), not helped by the frantic scurrying of the daschund trying to get out, deliver and get in before he gets wet!
