I've been given plants from birthday parties, sunday school, nursery, family gatherings AND I CAN'T GROW THE DARN THINGS. My poor poor dc are so disappointed with each failure...

On Friday I collected my dc from nursery to be greeted with a pack of seeds from each of them - some sort of freebie promotion from morrisions. AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH

What kind of seeds? Some plants are damn near impossible to fuck up.

Until a herd of cattle arrive in your garden, of course.

You can make a tidy earner selling weed though. wink

grin at Lotster. Weeds are plants though-they just don't grow in the proper place smile.

Sunflowers are dead easy. They were planting them on Chris Evan's radio show the other week, so maybe it's not too late?

Plant them pointing up, btw.

YANBU. I feel exactly the same! I know it's my fault I never remember to water them so they die, but there you go. I remember to give the kids food and drink grin.

You say 'weed', I say 'native wild flower' grin
