It's still bone dry underfoot FG, but I think not for much longer
Have a good day folks - see you later
Not looking forward to the rain Reminding myself that it's good for the garden but wish it wouldn't do it at weekends though as that is my gardening time, and I need to continue The Great Bulb Plant!
Stacey, I hope you feel better soon
Dove, that's the kind of thing I've done to skoot them out of the garden! My nemesis is a big ginger cat! Have gone out dressed in all sorts to get him gone!
Morning all, got up late today, but no work so thats ok. This is the 6th go of trying to send a message!! The ad for STIHL is back!!!! Lol dove great image of you in your pjs. Tidying garage today and putting away table chairs etc. Sun shining looks like a lovely day again. Hope all you poorly people get better soon. Time for brekkie and a cuppa then will make a start on garage please sort the STIHL out please still having trouble sending this one!!!! See you all later
I'm going to try and get the rest of the bulbs in today before winter sets in tomorrow.
OH filling the wood shed this week, then we'll be ready
SGL, 8.56 is not late! I was very late this morning and need to get myself motivated as I want to get grass cut. Sun was shining but it's clouding up now.
SGL, have you mentioned your problem to Daniel Haynes? I don't have any problems with ads, as mentioned a couple of days ago, so he may be able to steer you in the right direction. I know several posters have tried to assist so don't want to upset anyone being as I'm a know-nothing where techie problems are concerned.
Daughter just phoned to say she has decided on a suitable school for granddaughter, if she can get in. Still awaiting results off 11+ which are due out tomorrow. She has been to view so many schools. Such a difference from when mine were moving on. If you passed your 11+ you went to the local Grammar or Technical school and, if not, nearest Secondary. Simples peeps.
Well, this won't get the grass cut. Best be off.
Good day All
Such a busy day yesterday - did I post any where - can't remember
Cleaned GH and me in process, cab't believe how much clearer it is but didn't seem unclear to start with.
Took dog to vets as well - much improved but will have to be on meds indefinately. He has a bad back - don't we all!
Then today he fell trying to get in back of car so OH thinks we need some sort of ramp for him
Think I have managed to put all lants into GH that need witer tlc - I think that includes Foxglove 'Illumnation'
Should I do it to some young lavender?
back later nice to chat but have given up on catching up
YesTT have put a note on 'something up with the forum' so I'm sure it will get sorted. Just having lunch after spending the morning trying to find the end of the garage! Why do we keep so much crap? A trip to the tip (wella few probably! ) then a bit more sorting!! See you later---- it looks like rain soon best get on!!
Yes Matty,,I would put your young lavender plants in the GH
My thoughts too about illumination foxgloves. It's mild here but I'm so tempted to pot them, or couple of them anyway. It's the wet for me down here that may damage them
Cold and wet here in Sheffield. No gardening for me today as I have been working! Strange feeling not working for money but just because you believe in what the organisation does. Very empowering although, how long I can continue without earning Im not sure.
Hope everyone has had a good day. Mrs G what GCs do you use in Sheffield?
punkdoc, it's been good weather in my sheffield pocket todat, apart from 1.30 for about an hour of pretty torrential (ok just heavy) rain.
I mainly go to Wentworth GC, also one near work in Wakefield and near step's ferndale (not over keen) and new leaf. Also one in walking distance but very small, hugely convenient. What about you?
Got 3x eremurus bulbs but in unknown colours, still in car but something hybrid. A bit risky for me because I like orange but dont like yellow and chances are they will be yellow!
Found a spot for coldframe, layered bottom with polystyrene sheets (is that the right word even if spelt wrong), then put a few bits in.
3 bin liners of fallen apples in black bin (sorry, naughty but...)
Phew!!!! We have worked hard, cleared the garage of all the crap--- mostly empty cardboard boxes and other rubbish! Why do keep so much rubbish? Still after several trips to the tip we now have a garage again. Wonder how long it will take to fill it up again? Lol!
You could compost those apples - drunken worms (hic)- I do myNDN
Feeling low, been to vet again, Oscar had a fall this mornng and is a great deal of pain. He has been given a strong pain killer and have to see how he is tomorrow. they didn't want to keep him there as he is so distressed by vets. Lying here by me now - another sleepless night
Hi Mrs G. I do use New Leaf and also one in Stannington. Nowadays though I like to buy most stuff online. Get a much better choice and often much cheaper.
Sorry to hear about your dog Matty2 hope he gets well soon.
Thanks, he is asleep now, another restless night I think
Thoughts with you Matty
Agree with punkdoc. ESP in the dormant sason, buying online is excellent value. Smaller pots is ok now. Avoid bare root plants though. Usually they are rubbish, small or destined to flower a full season or even two later. Plants in 1 litre pots will make 3 litre size by mid spring. Those in 9 cm will make surprising growth next spring. However, my local GC has a good range of herbaceous perennials in 9 cm pots ....lupins, delphiniums, malvas, etc. etc. ....that quickly make large plants for the garden next summer
