The sweets? Yep. the programme? Nope.
My son remembers them fondly http://www.tv-ark.org.uk/mivana/mediaplayer.php?id=a42c41eacd9c1c4f0a74fef680b49b46&media=flumps1976-a&type=mp4
I am on a course at the moment and we were just talking about the flumps, the young ones on the course did not know what we were talking about!!
Hello flumpy - we could do with some damp Lancashire drizzle here at the moment - with all this lovely warm weather my ground has baked hard.
Will you be gardening this weekend flumpy, have you any questions for us on this gardening forum?
Same thing, we are also building a new long border, there was a row of dreaded conifers there which we dug out, hardwork and we have been doing it for months, but it is well worth it.
I love the sedums, they will be covered in bees and butterflys later.
This was when we started, next is how it is now.
Got a strong OH to cut down and dig them out, depends how big yours are though, you dont want to wear him out. He has just said that if they are over 18inches in diameter, he would have had a machine . You may need someone with a chainsaw then either a tractor to pull the roots out or a stump grinder. May be a profesional job. It will cost a lot.
The roots wont be too big on a 7ft tre
ours were 25 years old and 28 of them,, you need an iron bar and a pick axe or matock, dig around the root, out a bit from the trunk, then just pick away, when you come to a long root, just snip it off, they will come out when you start to dig the ground for planting.
The view here is beautiful, i am very lucky to be able to live here. This was today, coffee on the patio, Dartmoor hills in the distance.
Wow Lyn - that is pretty special
Thank you, chicky, its very special to me too. It is very hard work as i have only been making this garden since 2012, started digging borders in winter 2011. Its all from cuttings and seeds which I have grown myself. There are a few Bare root plants all from Parkers sales
Its a huge garden about a third to half acre with lots of borders and a veg bit.
