SP - Presuming this is directed to me.

No reason at all (if they have been hardened-off) why they can't be planted out now. As I've said many times previously, they don't care for cold winds....so maybe fleece them until they get established.

Push a few twiggy bits into the soil around them for support...of course, they'll need something more substantial later.

Another identification required, saw this out on a walk on saturday

Not sure if I should go on about this (it isn't all that relevant to the topic).....anyway, Arthur Billitt was an agri-chemist with Boots before moving to Clack's Farm. He bought the farm for his daughter to set-up a poultry business....sadly the business was wiped out by fowl pest....this is when he turned it into the GW TV garden.

Sadly, the whole lot is now buried under tons of tarmac.

Snoozing!

 

However.  Yes Dove.  I remember seeing Percy once.  Pipe in mouth as usual.  Someone had obviously rattled his cage.  He was potting-up.  It all went wrong, and he mumbled.  Ah! bugger it, poked his index finger into the compost, plonked the tiny plant in and almost crushed it out of existance.

 

Wey hey......this ain't going to date me!!!

Met Percy lots of times both at *Arthur Billitt's Clack's Farm  during the filming of GW in the early days and at Shrewsbury Flower Show, where he was a big shot. 

* A dear departed friend.

Container grown Acer

Meomye – In my opinion, potted Acers don’t need too much feed…..add slow release granule fertilizer such as Osmocote at planting time, then again each spring. Your Acer should not require any additional feeding throughout the summer months.

Thanks for telling me, fidget.

I was really annoyed at last week's camera club session (competition week) when the winner in the advance section with (what looked like) a stunning shot of a barn owl hovering in flight, took first place .....truth is, it was a total fake.

The member freely admitted it was posed for at a bird sanctuary and the owl was in fact perched on the arm of a handler...using photoshop, he had cloned-out the handler's arm completely. 

I know the Americans look upon anyone not digitally manipulating their shots, as odd.

Thank you, John     explored those possibilities, even used 'system restore' to rule out any recent changes. My hard-drive pie chart indicates 629GB free space.
