New range has arrived , but can't try out the gas hob because the pipe was too short. We'll buy a longer one on our way out this evening, cocktail party. At least my smaller saucepans don't wobble on it, did on old one and one gas didn't work properly on old one. Ovens are bigger too, Old one had one small oven and a rotisserie thing that I never used. New one has a grill, have really missed a grill. Really it is a present from my mother who died nearly 3 years ago.

Here is a photo specially for Dove, but it will probably be on top of this post, instead of underneath - which is where I am putting it.

Trellis planter help needed please!

I once put 2 clematis in a big trough planter, they were fine at first, Nelly Moser and Hagley Hybrid. But clematis are greedy plants and Nelly M grew a lot and HH died. I now have clematis with annual summer better planted under them and they get well fed and watered.

I love mine, it seeds itself by the terrace walls, in cracks, but it never appears in the flower beds. I planted the original one in a border but it decided the earth is too rich after all the manure and compost I'd added!

 

Window ledge style heated propagator - any good?

I have 3 like that Stewart one. One has 2 trays in it which I have found better than one. But I usually put bits of bamboo on the compost to make divisions to save space. Don't need a whole seed tray for I variety. That's why Chicky's looks so good.

Growing Roses

Lunaria definitely isn't a WUM. My past pets are buried in my garden but it is a big garden. I planted a rose on my first OH's gave. It was Silver Wedding, my sister-in-law gave it to us for our SW anniversary in July and he died in November that year.

What a chatty lot you've all been while I was out! All the sausage rolls have gone.

What a lovely family, Fritillary. My 4 children, spouses and 8 grandchildren were all with me for Christmas. I've got photos, but not a lovely group one like that. I married at 21, he died, heart attack when he was 53, I was 47, but some of you know that already. But I was very lucky and found my 2nd OH about 10 years later.

You are very talented Perki. Have you ever made lasting sculptures? Pottery?

Good luck with your move, BM, how exciting! But a lot of work. Where are you going?

Bit milder today, 3°, clouds are clearing and sun is starting to shine.

Off to make loaf of bread and some sausage rolls for the event we are going to tonight.

We are going to Suffolk for our holiday in July. Used to go to Southwold to stay with my grandparents there when I was a child. Want to show OH and visit gardens. Hope I'm not boring anyone, I've talked about it here already! Not this thread though.
