hazel sticks

Posted: 26/08/2014 at 11:22

I've found various suppliers online - http://www.wassledine.co.uk/hazel.html these seem good, but as usual it's the cost of carriage that spoils things.  I'm growing my own but I'll have to be patient

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning folks!  Just had a catch up - good luck to daughter and grand daughter Liri

Enjoy the shopping KEF - rather you than me

Hugs/cheers or whatever's appropriate for everyone else

Lovely Builder arrived just as the scones were cooling - he had two mugs of tea and two scones and re-sealed the bath - we'll test it tonight when it's 'gone off properly' and phone him with the result.  Charge for an emergency visit on a BH?  £15  

Identify please.

It can be very invasive - I keep a strict weeding regime at the foot of the fence separating our garden from next doors

Cheese scones in oven - thought I'd better have something to offer the Lovely Builder if he's coming here after finishing where he's working and before he goes home for his supper - don't want him feeling faint in the bathroom

Can you email it to yourself and then save it on a laptop or pc and upload it from there?

BL - get well very soon  ((virtual hugs from a distance)), but please keep it to yourself

Murraya Hedge leaves falling off

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 09:43

Hi Sharon  - I presume you're either in the US or the antipodes - Murraya isn't hardy here in the UK .  Not sure if any of the regulars on here will have grown it ....

Snowberry advice needed

It's often used to provide food and cover for pheasants etc during the autumn and winter.  It gets cut down to ground level in the very early spring and regenerates quickly forming dense undergrowth - if it's getting too dense either dig out some of the suckers, or remove the old plant and let the newer growth spread.

Morning folks!  just popping in on OH's laptop again    I have read back lots, but can't really remember who's doing what, other than KEF eating chocolate!  ((hugs)) to everyone anyway

Bit of a crisis here this morning - just before he left for work OH noticed water dripping down kitchen wall under bathroom shower!  He'd just had a shower!  Lovely Builder was going to come and re-seal bath/grouting etc when he redecorates after Ch****mas - now he's going to come later today or first thing tomorrow morning.  Hence I've just had a wash rather than a shower and my hair will have to wait until tomorrow

I was going to edge the lawns that OH mowed yesterday - not going to happen now - all wet and soggy out there too!   I couldn't do it yesterday 'cos guess what?  Remember I cleaned the windows although OH told me not to 'cos I had a bad back the last time - well, back's fine .... but yesterday my neck and shoulder were agony - heatpad and painkillers all day, and had to lie flat on my back all night 'cos it hurt to turn over.  It's a bit better this morning

Like Nut, I have faith in an Indian summer - how else is my bumper crop of tomatoes going to ripen?
