I must confess I can't see what it relates too Dove either.

I'm trying to decide whether to nip into the garden centre and get a hyacinth. We're always away over Christmas is the disadvantage.

Morning all!


Edd - my wormery will be going into the shed tonight (brick built so doesn't fluctuate too much with heat changes and to our knowledge wont freeze). I'll be leaving the tap open so they don't get water logged. Would they benefit from my lightly going over the compost to aerate it?

Also (I'm so glad you're back!) Do you stop feeding your worms over winter? The bottom layer is ready to use it looks lovely but there were still a few worms in it so I have left it in situ.

Evening all. 

Anyone finding themselves lacking in energy? I think I might need to seriously consider hibernating.

2.6'C on the shed roof (where our weather station lives). The caretakers roof (a nice brick building but has a really flimsy looking felt roof) looks like it has a faint frost on it although we'd be amazed if it had such good insulation!

Oh Dove what have you been up too all night?!

That said my energy levels are cripplingly low this afternoon. I'm tempted to just go and sit in (my now clean and tidy greenhouse) to absorb the heat and sun. Perhaps with the Chiltern seeds preview booklet that has turned up (not that I've any space for any more plants).

Just nipped some washing out on the line to air and returned via the greenhouse with this wee harvest. Is it really November?

Morning all. Working from home today and am hoping to get the rest of my tulips planted - although I am a little put to shame as I've read Maid Marion (I think it was) mentioning the 100s she'd planted. I've only got five to get in the ground but everytime I get chance to be outside I get distracted! 

Always read the label!

Nutcutlet I promised myself I wouldn't do that this year.

Lasted about a month before I'd forgotten what was in which pot

A "how much?!!?" moment.....

What about gumtree, ebay, freecycle etc... someone might be getting rid of one and be more than grateful for the £50 rather than take it to the tip.
