Same old story

does anyone use slug pellets that are dog friendly and actually work?!! I just cant have the great cosmos massacre again like last year. it nearly finished me off!!

ive seen organic slug pellets advertised, ive never used any pesticides in my garden, but im thinking,if theyre organic,dog friendly,..? worth doing?

poor old Monty! he can never look polished! he tries tho. I thought that Hostafan1 about Rachel, she looked like she was dressing in larger clothes for her normal self, wasn't she a model once?

I liked the bit about the woman who did the garden from dubhai that was a really interesting piece, I loved her garden, would've liked a bit more info on that, she was so lovely and monty seemed to like her! didn't like the mosque she took us to tho, looked a bit too bling for me. and she covered herself up which I always think is a shame.

a nice alternative to the awful coverage on the news of isis etc. her garden at Chelsea was gorgeous, altho saying that she wanted people to see a different side of islam, I don't read Arabic so couldn't understand what was on the stone ! wonder what it said?!

cutting down conifers

Posted: 20/05/2015 at 13:59

have to say this didn't occur to me when we chopped ours down last year, but it was in the heat of summer, and thank goodness theyre gone.

how do the police/council know what your doing? I live in a village and have never seen a policeman, (to be fair he did live abroad) would a neighbour complain to the authorities?

off course this year I felt dreadful as I remembered we had a blackbird that had a nest in one of the conifers, and kept coming back , looking for the tree. I will pay for that one im sure....

Protecting New Anuals From Frost In A Tent.

yes, I just lay it over the plants, and its the white fluffy horticultural fleece you get from gardening stores. I saw a programme about using it, and they said it can make the difference of adding about 3 degrees in temperature, so its defo worth it, all bedding plants, tender, and they've been out for a week or two now,quite happy!

Protecting New Anuals From Frost In A Tent.

careful the tent doesn't blow away with these winds!! a couple of years ago my plastic greenhouse caught the wind and upchucked all my plants...

I have my annuals outside on the patio,but at night they are covered up by a layer of fleece, they have been fine for the last week, and I am in the midlands where the weather is rubbish right now

wintersong totally agree!!

jools Holland, who I like usually "im not a gardener" and that actor "its the wife who does the gardening" really annoy me with those comments, why go then?!! obviously a freebie, and why does the bbc insist on interviewing them?!!!it makes me so mad.

but I shall watch every minute of it as its chucking it down here and im sick of gardening in the rain and wind and cold.. that was meant to be a cross smiley I have no idea how to do them......I am old..
