Time to take action I think, with the Supermarkets. I just left them a message asking them to water their plants, If we can just make them aware of how unhappy we are about the situation and the bad publicity they are generating for themselves then perhaps they will do something about it. is the UK page. thats a link to customer services. Hopefully they will listen.

Good Morning All, a misty one here this morning, I'm late up this morning, got to decide if its warm enough to do something outside or maybe go to Cork for the day. Woodies has a 50 cent corner theres usually a selection of slightly frost damaged annuals worth saving.

Glad you can get a new one frank for reference your typical laptop psu is less than £15 on ebay , batteries can be £30 or so. Keyboards typically around £10. It's only in shops you find these parts stupidly expensive.

Jet Stream finally moving up

Channel 4 as part of its news service, have announced that the jet stream has finally moved from its unusual location south of ireland and will be over scotland for the weekend.

For those that don't know it is because of being on the cold north side of the jetstream we have been having such a rough Spring.

The East coast may well hit 21 degrees this weekend unfortunately in the west it will be cloudy and rainy but still much warmer. So it looks like we should be able to start some planting out even if is in the wet for some of us.

I'd like to cut in some little terraces or just a spades worth of ledge and then anything trailing say petunia's falling down the slope

The flicker might be a screen fault or a psu fault my screen dims on battery and brightens on mains power you would see there is an led light which usually changes colour orange when charging yellowy green when charged off when no power connected.

Alternatively if it is the screen you might plug an external monitor in the side and it can mirror the internal screen. A tube type you should just about be able to get for free, if you ask the right person... they have little value these days people like big lcd screens these days.



New build house garden

Seems a shame to just put a garden to stone but a weed control fabric and some decorative stone is pretty much it. Your missing out on what you could have thou. Maybe try a few pots and baskets  see if anything takes your fancy.
