Lovely sunny day here in the Fens, daffs are about 10cm above ground.

Is it OK to cut Traveler Palm roots?

I would contact somewhere like Kew Gardens about that, but I think they will simply say 'pot it on'! Alternatively, tie the plant or the pot to something to stabilise it, or place the whole thing in a larger heavier pot.

Verdun and Rosie, I've only just got back to this thread. Sadly the sun is shining and it is warm; so won't be trimming the hedge

Friends put all the hair from the dog's brush into a flower pot and left it on it's side somewhat protected from rain; it all got used up.

Would love to know if those birds run a hairdressing saloon for cats

Walked dog in very heavy frost, my feet skidding on icy puddles, then sang in church choir, think we were all a bit off key during the anthem; church was so cold I thought my nose was going to fall off.

I was 'stumped' with that word stumperie, googled it and realised that in a previous garden had done a bit of stumperie, without knowing it was a branch of gardening; just wanted somewhere for ferns etc.

Checked the slightly heated g/h and found it did drop below 0 last night, but only just. I have this electric heater system that kicks in at 7c.

Harvested leeks, looked accusingly at mint in g/house, watered apricot tree in g/h.

Peas in cold frame surviving (they are suitable for Autumn planting).  Steamed leeks added green olives and vinaigrette, yum
