Thanks Dove. I didn't realise you could plant in modules - that would have been ideal for the very wet winter we had (though it doesn't seem to have affected them too much despite their spending 2 - 3 weeks completely submerged!)

I shall try to resist planning this autumns clove of choice from the list just yet!

HELLO FORKERS!

Dove - we've had a huge amount of fledgings recently - they seem to be completely ignorant of our coming and goings and they bounce around the pond practicing their crash landings.

Our garden now with railway sleepers, really pleased

Can someone tell me what the difference between soft and hard neck is? I planted Marco last year which I think is soft neck?

I've hung mine underneath the wisteria to give them some protection from the sun while they dry. Hopefully they don't get sun burnt there!

Speakers for the club

It might be worth you contacting the local Alpine Garden Society group too. My partners grandparents are members and both give speeches but regularly go to talks. They might be able to suggest a few Speakers for you.

Lifted my floppy ones last night now they're hanging in the garden to dry. Not sure if they were ready or not but as long as they're edible!

Crossing my toes for you that these next few appointments go well!

Oase pond vacuum

You can indeed get them - some fish like koi are very fussy and their ponds are kept clear of debris with vacuums like this. They're not as bad as they sound and normally collect the waste into a bag which you can leave by the pond for any bugs to get back in. Also they recirculate the pond water so you don't need to worry about contamination.

I've never used on Daniel, you might be better off asking a forum more targeted to fish keeping.
