Shredder

My Bosch 1600 electric shredder (the one with the Archimedes type screw cutting blade) has given up the ghost. They no longer make it (s...s).
Anyone use one of the turbine cutting types?

 

Pink Viburnum Tinus

Posted: 01/12/2013 at 20:39

If it is flowering now then it could well be V. x bodnantense Dawn.

The is V. tinus Gwenllian  which has pink buds and more pink in the flowers than straight V. tinus.

We just snip off a large  handful of leaves in summer and freeze them as they are for winter use.

Cleaning plastic plant labels

What a lot of work. I find I can wipe off pencil with a wet thumb. Perhaps the segs on it help though.

The 2,000 labels I just bought have to be rubbed down with wire wool before any pencil lead will stick to them. Doubles the work.

 

Buried treasure

Posted: 25/11/2013 at 21:27

We have removed over 30 tons of 'treasure' from this garden over the last 18 years and still we find stuff being pushed up by the moles.

So how about an old push chair type pram (sans enfant), upright and buried in rubbish. Never did find the original ground level in that bit.

Best find is an old stone pig trough.

And a path made of field stones.

Weather Forecasting? Don't get me started

Posted: 25/11/2013 at 12:35

What really annoys me is when I watch  a forecast and it shows the latest Satellite picture of us with no clouds, yet outside it is raining and as black as.......wherever is very black.

 

Sorbus hupehensis

I wonder here, if it is to do with the position of the tree. The uneaten ones are in the wooded area and so maybe less 'secure'. The eaten on is out in the open so fewer places for the predators to hide.
