I have covered my veg plot with horse manure which I rotovate in in the spring. I have horses so I have a lot of manure, but it's full of hay and weed seeds so means a lot of weeding. The plot was thick clay 20 years ago and now it's heaps easier to work with.

If manure is well rotted you can put it on roses before winter or in Spring. I feed my roses in Spring with rose fertiliser as well and again after flowering.

Glad your TV is mended, Dove.

Have had a horsey afternoon, grooming and putting a rug on Archie. Hannah is like a woolly bear, and overweight, so she hasn't got a rug. She sweats in them. Not sure what to do with her now she's retired, she's a food thief and a greedy piggy. Have also mended some electric fences in the winter paddock where they will be going in December.

The above comment that Edd mentioned has now been deleted. It wasn't a kind comment, just in case anyone wonders. I was a bit shocked, not a regular poster on this thread.

Morning all. Big frost -5°

Sorry about your uncle Panda. I hope it's an easy journey to Scotland, no snow.

Thanks for dropping in punkdoc, we were a bit worried. I hope your wife finds a job she is happier with.

I find that if I leave them on the trees the birds eat them.

Overwintering Pelargoniums

Posted: 24/11/2015 at 08:41

When I used to overwinter pelargoniums they always shed leaves and went yellow with the shock of being dug up. I used to cut back, but only lightly. I don't keep them in the greenhouse as it's not heated in winter and gets too cold. The place where I kept them indoors is now full of other stuff and they got a moth with green caterpillers that ate them so I've given up with keeping pelargoniums. But I did it for about 15 years.

So long as you don't put another photo of me on here David, everyone will be fed up with it! Most don't like their photos here, I think, but I've been here before.
