Good heavens! You can buy a small house here for sixty K.

I hope Wonky's GH has good instructions.

This is the kitchen in our Norfolk cottage, small but convenient and I like the big Belfast sink with the view to the field of cows, then woods.

I do Chelsea Chop the Rudbeckias, works well for the double ones in a different bed, but these single ones grow just as tall but spindlier.

Morning all. Looks like another warm, sunny day.

I have a sadly neglected bed I must attend to, full of yellow lamium, very tall rudbeckias that always blow over, even when staked and something with white fluffy flower that grows into everything else.

Worthy of the messy thread.

Morning all. Good luck at the dentist, Hosta.

Looks like another warm sunny day, there is a bed full of yellow lamium and plants I don't like that I must sort. It's a real mess.

When do you want to start sowing seeds? Because the season is starting. Covering completely now and not sowing will mean you've almost missed the boat!

Is the manure well rotted? I use it as a mulch in the flower beds, but in the veg garden I rotavate the manure in, having left it on top over winter, because I feel it's a bit rich to sow into. I also use permeable woven fabric to keep down the weeds, I cut holes or strips in it, depending what I'm sowing or planting. Others are against weed surpressant fabrics and wouldn't use them, but if it lets the rain in it works fine for me. What you shouldn't use is black plastic sheeting that doesn't let anything through. But that can be used in autumn over winter to keep weeds down if you dig and manure in spring.

I hope the fruit trees produce the sort of fruit you like. My cherries are magnificent at the moment.

I like my old style oak kitchen with unfashionable tiles. My children tell me it's dated, but I find it warm and homely. I do agree that new sleek kitchens look gorgeous but I'm a rather untidy and not a sleek sort of person. Daughter 2 may be getting a kitchen like obelixx. The one they had fitted in their previous house was modern, smart and shiny. But daughter 2 is a very clean and tidy sort of person.

What is your weather like? (2)
