Wot!  Everyone early to bed last night???


Well, good morning all   Slightly warmer overnight - only down to 6.1C - now up to 8ish and damp out there.  The heating has come on as we had it on last evening, and I'm too comfy to get up and turn it off. I'll turn it down when I get my coffee refill

BL - a TWIGS outing in July to meet up with you at BC's and/or Bressingham?  Sounds fantastic. All of July is free at the moment!  Can you build East Ruston in Norfolk into your trip as well?  I think you'd enjoy it.

We've had a lovely day out - now we're on the sofa watching some very old Star Trek.

Catch up with you all tomorrow - sweet dreams everyone

How do I re-subscribe to a thread?

Posted: 06/10/2014 at 11:40

Go into your Settings page - and then into Forum Settings.  That will give you the option to be notified of replies.

Also, if you scroll down to the bottom of a thread you'll see a little tickbox on the bottom lefthand corner which you can check to receive notifications.

However, there have been some technical blips on the site and I think some people don't get notifications even when they've asked for them.  The tech team are working on the blips, and there are future plans to re-vamp the site.

I don't bother with notifications - I get more than enough emails anyway.  I just check the forum every so often.

Hope that helps

Is it this one Alan ?

Sunny?  Not here it isn't - overcast and chilly - we're heading into the city for a day of food and culture


Oh, and maybe a little bit of shopping

Woody   I'm glad you enjoyed East Ruston - I'm on the lookout for a fine day this month and I'll take myself out there for a day on my own just luxuriating - I might even take a sketch book! 

Shame you didn't have time to call in here for a scone - I made 11 pots of Raspberry Jam especially   However, I'm quite relieved that you didn't get to see my lawn edges

I've not been to Beth Chatto's for years and years and years - we must do that outing next year!

End of the season thoughts

I'm a bit behind the curve due to having injured my wrist, so still have loads to do - and I'm awaiting delivery of some native-type daffodils due any day now.  Loads of perennials are still blooming their socks off so I'm not cutting them back yet and I think there's at least one more meal coming from the runner beans. There's lots more seeds to sow and I've still not planted up any pots of bulbs  ........... busy busy busy

Compost Heap

I'm going to turn mine thoroughly in just the way you describe (when the Under gardener has time to help me ) and then I'll cover the heaps and leave them for the winter.  We'll  have a look in the spring and see how they're doing.

Advice please - a climber for fence

What's the soil like - sandy/loam/clay etc and do you know if it's acid or alkaline?

How big is the area you want it to cover?
