Soil type?

I agree with Dove, it looks a potentially good soil, maybe just lacking a bit of heart.

TLC, as Dove suggests seems the way to go.

I'm puzzled  I post on a thread titled 'any good book for beginners', highlighting two excellent RHS publications on fruit & veg gardening.....the latter being available for just 1p from Amazon.....not a single reply!

I'll get me coat.

So Neil Warnock gets the Crystal Palace job……whilst he’s undoubtedly one of the game’s characters,  I don’t see him as having the coaching skills of his predecessor, Tony Pulis.

My pennyworth....not often I refer to books, but two books I wouldn't like to be without are: the RHS publications  'The Fruit Garden Displayed' by Harry Baker.

and

*'The Vegetable Garden Displayed' by Joy Larkom.....excellent companions, whatever your experience of gardening.

*Available from Amazon for just 1p.

And they all blamed David Moyes 

 

Yes indeed, please get back soon David M, the premiership needs you.

Maybe Chrystal Palace may be able to tempt you. 

The only crumb of comfort, is that your successor at Everton is a man equal to your very high calibre.

Cheers David,

Chatsworth is another place we love to visit but unfortunately I'm working on Friday  DOH!

 

Well comfort yourself with the knowledge that the weather will not be fantastic, Bubba.....I love Chatsworth too, my most favourite big house in the whole world.

Hopefully, I'll be visiting Bakewell on Mon 8th Sept.
