Feeding times with blood fish and bone?

Posted: 15/04/2017 at 15:13

Gosh that's a lot. I have a French one that says every 3 months and another in little pellets that says it lasts for 6 months. Maybe that's one of the reasons why unemployment is high here!

Plant ID please

Does it have flowers? That would make it easier to identify. Looks a bit like a spirea, but there are many sorts.

Feeding times with blood fish and bone?

My French version of it, blood and hoof, says it lasts 3 months. I just use it once in spring but I use rose fertiliser on roses 2 or 3 times.

Is this a weed?

I treat it as a weed, especially in the vegetable garden.

There will be 18 of us here for lunch tomorrow, goodbye lunch for a couple moving back to England. They will be going 10 minutes away from my SIL and BIL in W. Yorkshire. But others are bringing food too.

A lot of cleaning and floor washing has been going on in the veranda, dining room and kitchen. Tables are set.

I'm so sorry about HRH Pat. She was a lucky little girl to have her home with you and you'll have the memories of her inside you. Hugs. xx

I suppose everyone has gone to bed now. Laptop has (more or less) let me read but won't let me type.

Collected my new car today, bright, shiny red Renault Megane Estate. I think she's beautiful. Room for plants and compost in the boot

Planted onion sets and sowed seeds in veg garden, had to water, getting so dry.

Sleep well everyone. I will be naked in bed, but nightie is at hand for when I get up.

Laptop hasn't let me post since this morning.

Just when Dove mentioned a square of dark chocolate we were eating 3 (each)!

Have been planting onions sets and sowing veg, earth very dry, had to water. Glad to hear it's raining at Dove's, hope that means my little bed at the cottage is being watered too. We'll be there in May. Taking the new Megane. She's very shiny and red but that won't last long, given the state of the drive.

I had a sort out of stuff in the old car and transferred the essentials to the new one. Threw a load of rubbish away, including a 2001 phone directory, and am left with a bagful of stuff I don't know what to do with!

There's been a horrid smell in the larder. Spent yesterday afternoon cleaning it and hoovering behind the fridge, but I can't get behind the freezer. It's on a step and too heavy. But the smell is much better. I have a lunch party on Sunday for friends who are moving back to England so the smell was not wanted! There will be 18 for lunch but some are bringing food.
