Just seen what Bob the Gardener said about Jeyes Fluid. They don't sell it in France and I have just bought some here. Does it upset polycarbonate greenhouses? That's is what I bought it for - to clean my pc greenhouse.
Bob those damn things usually appear at start of June, but late this year. We have to wipe conservatory window sills outside at least 3 times a day with a very wet sponge, or they leak red all over. Inside it's wet kitchen roll to dab them with, if I catch the odd one heading for my white blinds (gross to say ) it's a wet finger on them and then a hand wash.
Luckily they seem to only be here about a month. Neighbours don't have a problem and we wondered if they arrived in the sand that was part of mix for conservatory brick work. They don't seem to crawl up the wall just appear under the sills and then on PVC, and inside through any means available.
Busy L, I don't know.
I clean glass houses and canes with it, and sometimes drains, but will say it stinks, and I hate the smell.
Jeyes will,stain,permanently your,polycarbonate greenhouse busy L.
Oh bother, it wasn't cheap. Wonder what I'll use it for then.
cloudy dark. here in north manchester things can only get better
Have reported kitchen spams, told them there are 15 altogether!
Good morning Sue, thanks!
Bit of a pain aren't they?

Good morning everybody
Busy L you can use jeyes to sterilise greenhouse soil, freshen drains, and clean greenhouse GLASS.
Its a beautiful morning.....it started with a huge bright moon earlier.
I think we are in for a good week. Forget any spam.....just scroll by
Good morning Verdun sadly it was too overcast here to see the moon - more to the point, will we see any sunshine here today?
Right, must get ready for work - have a good day everyone - see you later
Blue skies and sun .... and I'm off to work. Here's hoping for some nice weather next weekend.
Having strawberries (my own) with my weetabix.
Andy- your school finishes early for summer holidays - when do you have to go back?
Verdun - just the right sort of weather for taking pictures of a garden
Morning all. Cracking looking day to come.
Well done Sue...
Our schools go back around third week in August chicky. That's when we get the summer here They stop end of June for 7 weeks. My daughter's last day on Wed too - morning only. Do your strawbs taste specially good since you grew them?
Yes Verd - get clicking!....
Verdun............enjoyed seeing that big bright moon as well,not visable like that until Aug 2014 now.
Blue skies and puffy white/grey clouds and sunshine....so windy yesterday,odd tree branches down everywhere,flowers a bit bruised but survived,fence panels down in sveral places,lucikly none of ours.
Chicky.....strawberries and Weetabix,must be Wimbledon.
Schools here break up end of second week in July.
Have a good day all.
I missed that moon - slept too soundly - eventually.
Have a good day at work Dove - not too many to go now
Don't think strawbs and weetabix will catch on at SW19 Gilly
Glad we missed the wild winds yesterday some of you had- nothing that strong here although it was unpleasantly cold and wet. I'mhoping to get on outside later though my undergardener is going out for lunch with a friend. She never asked for time off..
Morning all, notice the lack of Good? Dull and still cool breeze here. Hoping it stays dry grass needs cutting.
Ditto KEF, grass,edges,deadheading ........
Well morning all, bit late for me but off to work soon so been sorting a few things out. Seems like you were all busy over the weekend, well done. The weather was a little unhelpful here in Worcesteshire, but managed to get in the garden yesterday and attack a very overgrown border, made some progress:
As you can see my lawn is now covered in the fruits of my labours. And there's more to go. Sadly I had to cut the escallonia down as it was too leggy and woody, I'm hoping it will grow back. I'm wondering now how on earth I will get rid of this lot, if I try to burn it the neighbours will not be happy, but bagging it all up and taking it to the waste recycling centre will take forever...plus a lot of that is nasty pyracantha with thorns you could use for a poison blowpipe! Oh well, at least I rediscovered the gooseberry bush, which despite being a little straggly from trying to reach the light is still bearing a few fruits.
Out the front things are a little more pleasing:
At last the peonies are open! Anyway got to go, have a good day all, take care.
