KEF - 21st? You're feeling enthusiastic aren't you?   I'm thinking more like April! 

Hoping the snow holds off for me to get into the garden tomorrow: I'm afraid I just can't cope with the cold when digging!

Morning all! We're taking Reggie to meet his lordships parents dog Meggie at a country park today. I hope the weather holds!

Hosta - I'd easily plant 60 seeds but don't have the window space! Are you using a heated greenhouse?

DD - have a great holiday! 

I hope everyone who had the high winds last night wakes with little damage. I'm going to have to put my gardening list on the back door - I have a greenhouse frame that I need His help building a base for. I'm getting fed up of it blowing down!

Bekkie: has he tried tiger balm? As a chronic ouchie I find it sometimes has a fantastic effect on my back when pain killers don't seem to touch it. Mind you that might be due to the streaming eyes when you accidently get a hand too close to your nose.

Don't worry DD if you believe what the rest say its hard NOT to bump into a ghost in this building. Well they've set up 42 chairs (we impose a limit of 40 people including their staff), "borrowed" all our plastic spoons, had me drag a tea urns worth of water up the stairs as they decided they didn't want to use our coffee shop area as "base" (hopefully the two young children in the room they're using as base will cause some mischief when the biscuits are brought out to make up for it).

Now they're all stood around looking lost and desperately preening their jackets. Only one hour until the guests arrive. Time for a quick nap perhaps? I've two cans of coke and a red bull waiting for me but I'm already yawning!

Well I'm home alone in the museum until the ghost hunters get here. It is going to be a cold night!!!

To do list is getting scary!

Talkback: How to cut back ornamental grasses

Posted: 27/02/2015 at 09:32

Verdun: I gave my grasses a trim last night while repairing dog related pot holes. They're all ever greens but looked very untidy after combing them through and retrieving tennis balls.

What fertiliser would you recommend for grasses? They've had b&b before but would sometjing else be better?

Morning all!  Got a 02:30 finish at work to day with a ghost hunt so I'm trying to make the most of my lay in... after I got up to make tea, let the dog out, it doesn't seem to be going well.

Looks like a beautiful morning today. I'm going to write myself a to do list for the garden and leave it somewhere obvious so darling doesn't-get-up-to-make-me-tea can prepare himself for some serious hard graft. There are several BIG JOBS he's offered that I would now like to cash in! Don't worry: there will also be a to scale CAD drawing to ensure its all going to fit in: after years surveying I really struggle to draw free hand!

KEF - Seen your PM but it wont let me reply. I thought I had posted them! Oh gods I hope great aunt Mavis didn't get them I've no idea where they've gone! 

If anyone could build me a new brain I'd be very grateful. This one is starting to get worse I'm sure.


Reggie not pleased with my daffodil replanting managed to dig a hole two foot deep in seconds. I kid you not on the depth I kept quite nervous leaning into it to fill it back up! Now to train him to dig over where the vegetable plot will be and leave the rest to me. Bless he looked so pleased with himself!
