If it is the one we have grown in the past then they are very nice. Hot and spicy and used by us in Stir Fry meals.

Had to strip one of these down to replace a part. The part took so long in arriving that the grease in the gear box has dried up. It is a bright green type of grease and no where can I  find the correct type to use when re-assembling the machine.

Anyone any ideas?

TIA

Talkback: Moles

Bit hard to do that round about an acre of land, surrounded by fields full of mole hills.

Talkback: Moles

The moles can dig up the grass as much as they like, but the ones in my garden have ruined (killed) the Iris garden. There is nothing left, not even the £250 to replace Daphne Jacqueline Postil.

The have also destroyed the Water Meter bed and exposed the water pipes,so I have to clear out the whole area and put down wire netting and put back the soil, just so as the pipes remain hidden.

They have undermined one area of alpine plants so badly that the rocks have now sunk and in doing so exposed the roots of about £1,000 of plants.

The have now moved into the central island bed and so far all they have done is to tunnel along the edge and covered over a few thousand Scilla tubergeniana, but they will no doubt move inwards and eventually kill the trees and shrubs in there too.

And you say live and let live? Tell that to the moles.

And stones might work for others but the area of the garden they are destroying has only about 6 to 9 inches of soil above a 12 to 24 inch layer of brick rubble and house foundations. It does not stop them, but it makes finding the runs hard.

I have not even mention what they are doing to the Snowdrop Wood either.

Utter waste of time. If you do not pick them with the flower still on, the pod is so stringy as to be completely inedible. Even when picked tiny, they are rather tasteless. Rarely find anyone growing them twice.

Trying this on Chrome.

Works for me on Chrome, but my version is a very basic one as I use Firefox normally.

At the moment in the Shade house waiting to flower before composting or planting or selling, there are over 300 Hellebore hybrids, even we do not have room for more!

Just done some more leaf removing of ours,.................third day of doing it and got about a third of them done. Some of them have over 50 leaf stalks on them, all needing removing.

I must have missed seed removing as well, there are hundreds of seedlings around, they need weeding out.

Then it has to be something in your set up which is blocking  the Link and Emoticon things.

Are you using IE, Firefox, Chrome or Safari? or on Linux or a Mac?
