Party-time -Glyn is getting squiffy on vintage mincemeat

29/12/2012 at 19:26

Ooh, sounds good to me Glyn  My jasmine usually flowers Jan but started budding earlier this year. It will flower now for about a month and at the end of flowering I hard prune it right back - it'll grow back in no time . After March I start feeding it until end of Sept then just make sure it's nice and cold somewhere until the buds appear . When they do I give it a high potash feed or weak tomato food . They don't like to be too dry either. Mine must be at least 7 years old now and never lets me down. I had 2 flowers appear on Christmas day and now it's flowering like billy-o  Just love the smell.

Hope this helps.

Right I'm off . Good night on tele for a change. Stephen King's Bag of Bones on at 9 by which time the chocs will be out.

Becks, if you are around ,you may like that film. Not seen it before but have read the book so hoping for the best

Catch you all later , Jean.

Maltesers used to be advertised as having less fattening centres

A Mars bar was recommended for work rest and play

I find I don't eat as much chocolate as I used to. More a savoury person these days.

Me too re a jasmine. I just repot mine every Feb/march & sometimes feed it, but not very often... Didnt know about it needing to be cool, although mine is in a barely heated spare room on a W facing sill.

Latest discovery Aldi sour cream & chilli crisps......

Right, am off too. Wonder if I can keep Mrs B's boys on? Must hide the remote. J.
