Hello all. Back from meeting in Bergerac, out again in an hour to OH's Choir's singalong with fish and chips supper. Been a lovely sunny day (I think) but I've missed it.

Glad your OH is feeling a bit happier, punkdoc.

I'm glad they don't have Black Friday in Suffolk, Topbird. Do they have it in Norfolk?

Dove's old house sounds gorgeous too.

And did OH materialise this time Edd?

Nice sunny day, bit chilly. Have swept all the leaves on the kitchen terrace, mostly lime and oak, and finished planting up the pots.

That all sounds lovely.

Dave Morgan - oiling had been suggested on page 1 of this thread.

Oh well done punkdoc! That's good news.

Want to go outside but it's freezing!

Don't forget to put drainage holes in the bottom. I fill my posts with earth and compost to about 3/4 then just compost in the top 1/4. I only ever change the top bit when I replant.

As milk churns are tall it would be nice to have something that falls down over the sides too. Depends on whether you want annuals or perennials and what your personal taste is. Also where you are placing the pot, sun or shade.

HELP! Something is growing on the terracotta Pot!

I can confirm what pansyface says. Big old terracotta pots in gardens often have that white deposit on them. A lot of people like them like that, gives them an antique character look.
