if you girls spent more time checking things like oil levels, tyre pressures, and water levels on your cars you might have noticed the windscreen wash bottle often have a plastic cap with a thin connector to the water reservoir  so it does,nt get lost , this magnificent device used on a watering cans would save wild life like elephants and hippos from falling in, i know  theses animals really are a nuisance, absolute rocket science, and you, v heard on Dragons Den how people often try to over-solve problems  that really dont exist,well your doing very well today girls, mind i do love the large grounded water bottle with a long spray nozzle that sounds good, am i making sence Thomas Wilkinson 2 AND REMEMBER this is all meant in the nicest possible way,youv all made me laugh this morning and believe yu me i appreciate it, and iv got Kate digging holes for a greengage a Braeburn apple and a Bramley cooker,  NOW about these watering contraptions

What type of peas.

Posted: 17/02/2014 at 09:44

Hi Fig, we used greenhurst shaft, or shaft greenhurst not sure, they were stunning, loads of pods full of sweet peas,they need decent support as they grow quite strong and about 4 foot tall,we also dipped the seeds in paraffin to stop the mice eating them, one or two were still dug up but not eaten i just pushed em back in, the year before without dipping in paraffin our allotmenteer neighbours lost almost all to the mice ,old but good trick and it works.  Alan

Talkback: Fig trees

Posted: 15/02/2014 at 13:59

Now thats a gret prog i havnt heard it before,im onto in the future and interesting views on the figs, i just might try both ways as iv got a good selection of figs coming along for the future,iv found direct planting for the cuttings is better than in jars, they seem to settle very easily and quickly,and there seems to be somthing rather special in growing fig tree cuttings i get quite a buz, i cant put my finger on it, maybe beaucaus they look such a nice tree, why aint my spell check workin nar  cheers Dove miduck
