I put it on the veg bed, and some around the plants on the flower bed - mixed with organic chicken manure pellets.
I love Abutilons, but they don't like the chill in the Fens. Also Alstroemeria, which I would like to try and grow; any tips about this gratefully received. Am also fascinated by Agaves and Aloes, but don't grow them.
marshmello, where are you managing to get paraffin that cheaply? I'm having to pay B&Q £7.00 for 4 litres.
I think we are all suffering from 'cabin fever' because the weather has been so vile. Over the last 2 or 3 weeks I have forced myself to go out in all weathers and tidy/ plant stuff in the greenhouse and generally get organised for when it does get warmer. I feel much better for it; can recomend it
I would contact the Council; maybe they could get your neighbour to deal with the problem in their garden, otherwise it will always be coming through.
Joel, I do feel sorry for you. I was plagud with a bad back for years, though not the same problem as you have. I now see a physio every 6 weeks and he hauls my back into shape again. What I found very helpful was a kneeler with 2 side supports to help me get up again if my back is stiff or weak. Also using stomach muscles more helps.
How lovely to be welcomed back, excuse me while I snivell.
Have only just come upon this thread, but I gather it is about the lovely Verdun (whose posts I so enjoy) being bullied on the four candles thread. A few months ago, when I had only been on this forum a short while, I received a couple of 'private messages' from someone begging me to go on this thread. I explained that I did not understand what thy were talking about on fork handles; had to do this quite forcefully - twice.
I sort of got the impression that it was a bit of an exclusive club, but like Grouch Marx I never want to be a member of a club that would allow me in.
Just wonderful! All of them, thank you for making me laugh
