It's ok Hosta - we know what you mean

I just drove up to the GC to help OH deliver a newly completed chalk-board sign as BigWig is coming today and they want the restaurant signs to look more professional - they were very pleased and paid on delivery  

The problem is that I needed some wire to go over the pond and some windbreak fabric for the broccoli so I had to go into the GC with OH .............


Three pots of violas, three bags of Iris reticulata bulbs and some Allium Christophii bulbs just fell into my empty basket - honest!!!  

Just about added up to what they'd paid OH

Ah!  That's fine then - couldn't do that here although we could when we lived a couple of miles away in the city centre

Is this really cruel?

My OH sells Ladies' Fingers in the farm shop - he says they're very popular

Turf in Flowerbeds!

Providing it's ordinary turf it should be fine.  If there was couch grass in the turf you might get a problem - if the gardener knew what he was doing he shouldn't have put any couch grass in there.  Fingers crossed

Male residents of Bath used to be very tasty with a coating of breadcrumbs and a helping of piccalilli, but I've not enjoyed one for years
