Lol, I read in a post last night that there is always good that comes from bad?
Or something like that
Hmmm, not sure if it can be guaranteed - that would give baddies the excuse to go around doing bad things and saying that good was going to happen
Think we should do good rather than bad if we can
Every cloud Sam
I think us 'ladies' need a Hollywood/Beardshaw appreciation society thread!
Yi know what I mean Dove lol
Wellllllllllllll, could we have a Hollywood/Beardshaw/Packham tryptich - pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease!
And with that, Zebedee said "It's time for bed!"

Oh dear. Just finished an episode of Sleeper Cell and you're all off to bed. Will have to find someone else to chat to.
Yes Sam, I agree with you wholeheartedly about things as they are now. Different forum altogether.
Bit late posting today as I had to plant a bare-root Maraval sweet chestnut tree in a large 60x60x60cm container as soon as I got home from work, before it went dark. Took ages to fill with a mix of my clay soil, MP compost and JI No3, then had my dinner and fell asleep! Tomorrow's job when I get home is planting a Japanese Wineberry, a Jostaberry, a Lingonberry and a Worcesterberry!
I've got to find a bigger pot for my bay tree - it's very cramped indeed - so if I go the the GC at lunchtime I might get myself that thermometer too - if I remember!
Dove-don't spend too much now..I never do that
Bob-do Lingonberries grow well here? And I haven't heard of Jostaberry- can you enlighten me! Thanks Not sure I've actually heard of Worcesterberry either!
Morning, early birds. Bob, your trees sound great. Are they all going into tubs or do you have a fruit garden?
Dove, I have a bay tree in a large pot. The trouble is, the larger the pot, the larger they grow!
Goodmorning. Raining today so no getting on outside. Have so enjoyed my last two days, even if the bones and muscles haven't. Suppose I better find the hoover instead.
I really must get my Salix integra 'Hakuro Nishiki' into the garden as it is looking very sad and I feel has outgrown it's pot, but don't know how I am going to manage it. Pot is like a column and about 2' 6" high. Any ideas.
Tina in the past I have had to get large plants out of pots and here's a idea for you. Lay the pot and plant on it's side. Sit down next to it and put your feet on the pot rim. You can now try and pull the plant out. If you have crocks in the bottom of the pot it is sometimes possible to put something onto the drainage holes and push against the crocks. If you can find a volunteer to help one can pull and the other push.
Thanks for that Muddyfork. It was planted some years ago in peat which seems to bind together. Have tried to loosen but without success. Volunteered son. He's into all this gym malarky so perhaps he can test his muscles. Will tell him when he gets home.
