Just played the clip, and am smiling away. Was close to jigging round the kitchen, but littlest Chicklet gave me one of those "I'm about to disown you" stares

What's eating my snowdrops?

Think its probably slugs

Personal Profiles.

Posted: 01/03/2016 at 06:41 horticultural classification ......think I'm probably one of those low growing, suckering green jobbies that gets everywhere, and is almost impossible to get rid of

But apart from that, I really, really love gardening - does that count for anything?

Cute skinks

Won't add much more, as this thread is about to be consigned to oblivion and no one will read it anyway But for those that do, hope you have a very happy Tuesday

Did a good bit of weeding and cutting back - looking better already 

Planted up a new acer and some evergreen ferns

Gave everything in the greenhouse and coldframe a good watering - lots of new growth appearing

Cosmos seedling have been devoured

I agree with Bob that its mice that are the culprits  -slugs would have eaten the lot, not just nipped the tops off.

I have mice in my GH - too many to get rid of - so i put vulnerable seedlings on trays balanced on tall pots so there is an overhang.  Its the same principle as saddlestones on old barns.  Mice can climb, but they can't hang upside down

Definitely second MaryG  well done

Had a good tidyup/weeding session ...beginning to look so much better out there now. First time this year that I came in because I had run out of steam rather than light

Acer all planted up - looking good.  Lots of things growing away when you get down on your hands and knees and furtle

Sympathies with the neck Dove - sounds ouchy. And hoping secondborn's house is ready very soon  Yvie - they are so lucky to have you available as a stopgap (bit of tidying wouldn't go amiss though).  Surely there isn't any more fence left to paint Fairy ....or are you starting from the beginning again already?
