HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Glad the TWIGS had a good day. I looked up TWIGS on the Search facility, it only mentioned them once and that wasn't the time when it was explained. All the twigs it came up with were in little letters and belonged to trees and shrubs. I hope I can become a temporary member next year, mother's family are from East Anglia.

Lunching out today.

Ideas Please

I think nutcutlet is right. Monty just used the tool but he didn't say what make it was, or show a label. I don't think he would have been paid extra for that. Hard to make a gardening programme without showing any garden tools.

Glad it was a successful day Chicky.

Finished putting gravel around the shed, looks a lot neater. Emptied 4 troughs and 3 pots of summer bedding and added some new compost, ready for pansies, violas and wallflowers. Lots more to do though. Sowed sweet peas.

Going to new restaurant after church tomorrow in the village where church is. Run by a young couple. Quite a few of us are going.

I think there was a thread about bulb planters before. My OH bought me one last year and it was a great help planting daffodils. He found it on the internet. But the earth (clay) was hard to get out. OH found a metal parasol stand and I pushed the earth out with that. Worked a treat.

I agree with everything you just said, David. But I'm afraid I could have done without Donny Osmond.

Sometimes it's because of the weather, but apart from that, sorry, I don't know.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 11/10/2014 at 21:29

Have sown my sweet peas, in loo roll middles stood up in a window box full of compost. The window box is not outside the window! It's just that it was the right size.
