Haven't found root trainers for sale in France. Must look on line. Last year my loo rolls completely disintegrated so I've put them in flower pots, 3 to a pot. Uses more compost and I will have to dig bigger holes. I'm trying dwarf one too for the first time.

It's all looking very tidy and promising. You've worked hard. I've hardly started yet!

Having said that above, I should say I have been to Sissinghurst several times in the summer when we lived in Kent before 1985 and it was beautiful.

What is your weather like?

It was quite sunny this morning, but -3° and frosty. Now it's clouding over and there is a chilly wind.

I went to Sissinghurst in April 2013 and felt ripped off. April was really too early so most of it was bare, but I felt I had more out in my own garden. The buildings were shut, except for the sitting room, as they were being decorated. It was more expensive than most gardens open to the public. I felt they should charge less at that time of year or at least allow a discount because of the re-decoration work.

I haven't seen that GW yet as I was babysitting for son. It is recorded.

Guests have gone, lunch went well.

Must clear out the stable. Full of bits of garden equipment, mostly OH's, and my old trays of shrivelled shallots and onions from year before last that I haven't chucked yet. Grew too many that year and shallots were such a bother to peel. The horse dentist is coming tomorrow for daughter's horse who isn't chewing her horse nuts properly so I need a decent safe space in the large loose box.

Oh dear, didn't realise the first one that I practised on before going back to Hosta's post would still be there!

Loved your timely response Pat.  Have just come in from the garden and ate a lovely BLT.  Finally got to sleep about 4 this morning when painkillers sorted out aches and pains.

Been back in the garden this morning and finished the mulching, also pruned some more shrubs, fed clematis and roses, scarified lawns and tidied shed.  It's not looking good for tonight is it Never mind the garden looks lovely now, well it will when the lawn has recovered a bit.

flumpy, it's a bit of a pain,and doesn't always work, but they're upgrading next week so might be easier then.

Go to the message,, bottom right corner, click on quote, then click on unquote, then go to your message writing box and click the inverted commas and the message should appear. 

You can crop out the bits you don't want, eg, if it's a long posting and you only want to quote part of it.

In theory, if you then hit the return bar, you can add something underneath, but sometimes it appears in the same quoted box

 

At last!  I've done a quote, I think. I just clicked on "quote" before, not "unquote" as well. Yet I'm sure I've done quotes in the past but I don't remember clicking on both.

Morning all. Blue sky. Friends coming to lunch after church. Forecast this week is good. Must sow some more seeds and finish the pruning.

We had our cottage in Norfolk surveyed and we had a long written report. The Solicitor wouldn't let us complete until the seller had sorted and repaired a couple of things that the surveyor had noted. There was damp in a wall and it had to be dealt with by a damp expert and we had to visit the house again to approve it before the solicitor was happy.
