Good luck for the storm everyone

Keep safe everyone. Having been through the worst of the '87 storm, I'll be thinking of you all. 

Storm Ophelia

Posted: 15/10/2017 at 19:09

There once was a storm called Ophelia


Which  totally stripped my abelia


Of leaves and of flowers in my bucolic bowers


And scattered them o'er the phacelia.

To upload photos start with the camera icon.  If that doesn't work try reducing the size of your photo ... that usually works 

scarifying and aeriating

I use the lawn rake attachment first and  then the 'scarifier' ... works fine that way round for us.

Good luck Mary   


I remember the Storm of '87 ... our area was bang in the middle of it ... lots of damagem roads blockedt  for several days and no power or phone for nearly two weeks ... lost a few shrubs but our home and family were ok, and that was the important thing.  

foxes and pond planting

Posted: 15/10/2017 at 14:22

Foxes eat slugs and worms as well as rabbits and rats etc  ... just the sort of creature you'd find under the hessian around a pond ... I would try to discourage them ... the family should naturally be breaking up now and moving on to establish their own territories.  Feeding them will stop this natural event occurring and can cause problems such as over-population and consequent disease.  

Grape vine identification

Boskoop Glory is also frequently grown outside in the UK and also has pips.  The leaves also have very good autumn colour.


I wouldn't be worrying about the variety ... I'd just make the wine ... the sweetness and therefore the amount of additional sugar needed varies from season to season as well as variety.
