Hello Chicky and Wonky. Glad Chicklets exams went OK.

OH has gone to choir practice. Thought I'd pop in for a chat, there's no one here.

Shall go and make another cushion instead.

Clematis offer

Posted: 26/01/2016 at 18:55

If they are that tiny then I think I would pot them on to a deeper pot until grown some more.

Clematis can take a while to get going, but can't tell you how long. I bought one in a small pot, had 2 flowers the first year, then 6 or 7, then lots.

One reason for not sowing too early is that there aren't enough hours of daylight yet for certain plants.

Potatoes..best ones for storage

My great great grandfather was Mayor of Norwich. I never wanted to go to France in the first place (1985) went for 1st OH.(who died)

But this is meant to be about potatoes.

Can a Rose Bush live in semi shade?

My climbing "The Pilgrim" faces east.

I hope you had those rose roots in some damp compost or temporarily dug in somewhere. Rose roots mustn't be allowed to dry out.

When I was young I had sheets and blankets and I liked the feeling of weight over me. But now I have a duvet. Recently bought a very light weight 10 tog one from M&S for our new cottage in Norfolk. I was surprised how warm it was for the weight, had the heating off for the night. In the old flat in Eastbourne we had 4 tog for summer. In France we have a sheet for summer and a warm duvet for winter. The French don't use togs.

Just been to the re-cycling tip with a trailer of rubbish then to the DIY place for a new roof for the shed. The roofing felt flew off in the gales. Can't find roofing felt anywhere, even on line it's out of stock in SW France, so bought sheets of green painted metal roof. More expensive.
