Where do you grow your Allium's?

Fairygirl, I was so sorry to read your story about your father and BT. I love taking on big corporations who behave badly; a friend who I share a bottle with every week always asks me who I'm after at the moment. I used to get so angry, but now I treat it (for my health's sake) as a chess game.

Bt have changed there delivery system yesterday for BT Vision (a television thingy that enables you to record and see iplayer stuff on your TV not the computer) so I lost all my recordings, which I expected, but my TV would not go on. Spent an hour on the phone to Mumbai last night (free) and the instruction booklet for the new system arrived TODAY in the post; how could they get it that wrong?

My current 'bete noire' is Scottish Power who are unable to get my address right. I have pointed out to them that writing down an address correctly is far easier than delivering electricity to thousands of homes, and asked them; should I be worried?

Good morning everyone. Just decided to leave Toms in G/H; it's too cold and windy for them outside. I suppose I'll have to start hardening them off again next wek when it may be warmer

Nut, how right you are

Lorraine P, I agree with you about maps. I love reading and always look up the area mentioned in the novel, with google street view I can even 'see' the type of housing the characters live in.

blackest, the best G/C in my area is Moat Road Nursery, but I can't put it on the map; it is just North West of my balloon. I am quite pleased to be living in a field, not far from loads of swans; they are brilliant neighbours

The front cover of one of the tabloids today said; experts forecast another awful summer. I refuse to believe it until it happens

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
