Good evening all ,let me start by saying that have no interest in sport of any kind,I would like to start a new "Rant" at the risk of incurring the wrath of my fellow gardeners .Every time I apply to a British company for something they always look for a post code . In Ireland there are no post code's except in Dublin city where there are odd numbers on the north side of the city and even numbers on the south side.When asked for my address I will type Ireland but when the article arrives its always EIRE why is this ? , for instance will they use the English names for these countries  Spain France or Germany,or these names  Espana , La France , Deutschland .

How to do it properly without running the risk of poisoning yourself or your family you can read all the books you like but a practical TV program would be a step in the right direction

Good Morning GG,Clear skies over here in Clogher head cold at the moment temp 1c but the day has promise , the late GH and Monty recommend that if you have a multitude of bulbs corms and tubers ,that you plant them in shallow bowls /pots with the Base cut out ,as each flower come to the end of its season the bowl / pot is re-placed with another similar bowl / pot of what you would like to grow in its place .hope this idea helps , yes I know its not a rant
