Glass cutter

KEF, is your glass horticultural grade or the re-inforced stuff? You may need to get the re-inforced stuff cut professionally. Hopefully someone here will let you know.

philippa, thank you for that information, I'll see if I have stuff nearer the time.

Rosie, when I saw nutcutlet yesterday (we went on an ngs visit) she suggested that I could fit far more into the car if the plants were just dug up and put into plastic bags. Are there people at the plant creche who could then pot them on? I could bring pots, but obviously not compost.

Edd, I quite agree; that's what I use on the shower head too, though just vinegar works also.

PoddingtonP, I have never been able to grow Limnanthes douglasii, either in London or here in Norfolk. Is there some trick that I am missing?

Rosie, what is that stuff that looks like dead hair in the background, is it some kind of dead hedge?

My heart bleeds for people in this situation.

I imagine that they are being advised to dig in horse manure to re-populate the soil with the 'little critters' that make the soil productive and living. A lot of those micro-organisms will have drowned I think.

Today, potted up loads of self seeded things from the flower bed like Lychnis Coronaria Alba and an orange Papaver. These won't need much cosseting as they are already hardy (thank heavens as will soon run out of space undercover to nurture seedlings).

Hope you have a good week

Did you remember to turn your clocks back?

Agapanthus versus Dandelion

People often recommend that when a weed is too close to a much loved plant to dig out/ use weed killer, just snip it off at ground level every time it appears.

Sunday supper bump

Wilko,s

greenfingers, I saw someone on a gardening programme once say that it was quite ok to remove a plant from it's pot in a Nursery to check on the roots, now I regard myself as pretty fearless, but I'm not quite sure that I have the cojones to remove a plant from it's pot in Wilko or indeed anywhere else to check on the roots.

I am, however, prepared to try this in several large garden centres if I have the backing of people on this site.

New plant to Id please

Germander speedwell? Lovely out in the countryside; perhaps not in your garden Panda
