David....... ((Hugs)) and ((hugs)) for Busy Bee too, although there is still time yet 


Thanks, OL.....although it was pretty well cut & dried after the Chelsea defeat and certainly after the CP disaster. I must say I was expecting more from them today though.

Watched the England ladeeeze against Ukraine last week...always good to watch.

Good point, Dove...I think the expensive stuff is riverbed sand.

The two main types of sand sold by builder's merchants is red sand (for making mortar) and concrete sand....I suspect the latter, is the one (which is coarser) is the type being referred to above.

Thank you , my question answered too!

You're welcome...the same query seems to have arisen a few times recently, so perhaps it's a busy year for plum aphids.

Btw, this could just as easily be applied to damson trees.

I need hugs too....

Well, Liverpool will wallop Newcastle (Brendan Rogers words still ringing in their ears)...Man City? The pressure is definitely on them.

How lovely - and well-deserved David   Have you any idea of the colour you will be?

Not a clue, all depends how successful there are at developing new varieties....I would rather it would have red in its base colour.

Erm  not sure where I'm portraying this 'frilly' side of my persona, F.

I think I should clear something up, that has been on my mind for a little while now. It's regarding my always recommending Eagle Sweet Peas....I have to assure people that in my own experience they are probably one of the best sweet specialists in the country and the quality of their seed and choice of varieties are the very best.

However (as I have mentioned previously) their nursery (not open to the public) is local to me and I know the family well, this doesn't mean that I would seek free publicity for them, or would I recommend them if their product was anything less than I claim.

There are about six top sweet specialists out there, one is Matthewmans who I would also recommend.

I need hugs too....

Growing Sweet Peas

Thanks, rosemummy......on reflection, perhaps I shouldn't have said anything. The request was from Eagle SPs, probably on of the best sweet pea specialist growers in the country, who are local to me and good friends.

They have a long list and in all probability (if I accept) can take years to happen....depending on the number of their new introductions.

I'm familiar with most of the origins of most of Eagle's names, most are the names of family members & friends.
