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
