Blast - looked here too late and missed the winter watch alert

Slug nematodes... yay or nay?

They worked for me, but you need to wait til its much warmer - from memory, about May - before you use them, so you need another answer for early in the season.

i also found you need a watering can with a rose with big holes - it clogged up the first one i tried to use.

Morning all - how were the weekend's labours Clari?  And how was London Dove?  And where has Fairy flitted off to now ?

Fidget - hope the clearance now stops and some garden creating now begins.  It would be nice if they added as many new trees as they have removed

Could do with another couple of days of weekend - two days of sunshine have been very welcome here, but not very helpful on the HW front

Oh dear.  However, a walk through your snowdrop wood should lift the spirits

We have a galanthophile in the village who opens his garden to visitors in Feb - will take my camera this year and post some pics.  It really is quite a sight.  I have bought a few named ones from him - magnet, james backmore, sam arnott and brenda froyle - can't tell them apart unless i check the labels

Thanks Sue - good piece.  Love the picture of the green one fringed with red edges.  Mine are all showing fat flower buds at the moment ....... The excitement is mounting

It was me planting bulbs - and they are now all in.  So lovely to have a day in the garden at last

When i had finished pottering i went for a long walk - everything looking lovely in the late afternoon sun

Love my felcos - expensive, but i have had mine years.

New allotment OMG...

Posted: 19/01/2014 at 17:24

How exciting .  Never had an allotment so can't give first hand advice, but i would certainly ask other plot holders - it will be good to get some advice, but also to make some friends
