BARNSDALE GARDEN TRIP.

Posted: 11/06/2014 at 21:03

I haven't read this thread all the way through, but I did say at the beginning that I could do this. Not sure if my name is on the list, but if so, I'm afraid I won't be able to be with you.

Hope you all have a great day at the home the maestro.

 

Lopper advice

Posted: 11/06/2014 at 19:28

For ease of operation and capability to tackle tough jobs with ease, I would recommend loppers with a ratchet mechanism.

Mine are Draper 61207 Telescopic Anvil Ratchet Action Loppers with steel handles.....reasonably priced and up to any job.

Ah, gotcha....nah, didn't mean that.

A profusion of vitamin D heading your way......so keep cutting.  

What have you learnt this year in the garden?

It gets arder...arder to get-up from me knees.. arder to straighten me back....knees signalling imminent replacement.....spade gets eavier.....oh it's ard!

Rude, moi???  No  innuendo either, just couldn't fathom why you wouldn't have minded your SPs being ready a month later.  

For the record, I've always spoken highly of Nigel Don too.

Well what's good enough for Monty is good enough for me 

 

I'm sure you don't mean that!  Or did you mean you wouldn't have mined waiting for another month?

I've made my own for my other sweet peas, that are still quite small and nowhere near flowering, 12 ft bamboo canes tied together 

 

I understand, OL, something 6 to 8ft will be perfectly adequate.

My previous post was just a general one really.

Oh, btw....Monty Don won't be cutting his for another month.

Perhaps it might be worth mentioning here.....please don't me lulled into buying those silly little, fancy obelisks (sometimes made of willow or metal) which are not much more than a metre high and being sold as sweet pea supports......they are just totally inadequate.

Looking for an unusual sized shed - 3ft x 4ft

Fiona - There outlets who just supply sheds and others who make and supply them.

I think you'll find those who make & supply, will make one to your own requirements....we have at least three in my home town who will do this.

HELLO FORKERS!

Been to the dentist today.....why oh why, do they always say 'have a good rinse', while you're lying flat on your back??  

 

David, you are supposed to sit up before rinsing!

Lovely evening, we ate supper outside. Not as muggily hot as yesterday.

Verdun, you mentioned taking a selfie, you haven't taken any photos of your garden for ages, are you intending sending any this year? Please.

 

Yep, but they have the rise & fall peddle....perhaps if they said I'll just straighten you up, then have a rinse.
