Wanted to finish planting my pots but it rained too much.

Forecast was mild and pleasant with sunny periods but it has poured. Glad I didn't put the washing out.

Obelixx, I'm surprised you say no Glyphosate in France. They sell it here and the ban wasn't to be until until 2022. More recently the news is that only Glyphosate containing Tallowamine is to be banned.

I remember Peter West commentating on Come Dancing, before Terry Wogan. I loved the dresses then.

Greenhouse Heating

Dai the Lawn, that happened with my 2 funnel paraffin heater, then it started making soot and I just couldn't adjust it properly so I bought another. Always a bit of hassle, but I didn't have an electricity  supply to the GH. Then, some years ago, I met 2nd OH and he arranged an electricity supply and gave me a small heater. It's so much easier.

Feeling drained and headachey. Family dispute yesterday.


Your winter interest area sounds a lovely idea Obelixx.


Glad you enjoyed your visit DD.

They are lovely Yvie, what a lot you still have out. My dahlias are now frosted and I will be digging up the ones in pots to make way for spring bedding in the next couple of days.

I didn't think Lesley was the worst, but, if she would have had to jive next week then I think it's just as well she's out.


I really think Ed should go next. Can't understand why Daisy was in the dance off. I think she's the best woman dancer. Maybe her costume wasn't pretty enough.

Frances Tophill is often on Gardener's World now, to add to the other women gardeners. She's the one who visited gardens in extreme spots.


Agree with aym about Monty's banana. It's something most of us probably don't have and he's spent some time last year and this year digging it up for the winter. I couldn't have one anyway, it's just too big and heavy. I prefer flowers anyway.
