Pelargonium cuttings

I take pelargonium cuttings throughout the growing season ... but you need a non-flowering shoot to make a good cutting.

The Forgotten Herbs

I grow sorrel and have grown lovage.  I use sorrel in sauces and egg dishes - I really like the flavour.  The small leaves are also good in salads.

Lovage is a great addition to a stock, and the leaves are lovely in salads.  They do grow into huge plants 6-8ft tall after a couple of years, and take up a fair bit of space.

Morning all 

Just as well I went to bed early last night 

Present wrapping, house and plant tidying and packing to do before setting off for Lincs late this afternoon .....................

Take the nuts and fat balls in when the birds have gone to bed at sundown and put them out again next morning.  I see you're an early riser so they won't have to wait too long for their breakfast

The problem with ordinary Melatonin is that it only helps you go to sleep, it doesn't stop you waking in the night.  However, there is a 'slow release' type available ... that might help Hosta.  And you really have to take it in the right way ... 

Right, tidying up, wrapping presents and packing to be done ................

It's up to you of course, but I really wouldn't take anything off the ends of the branches ... they'll loose that elegant line and just go bushy

Mike I am not and never have been a Mod on this or any other forum. That ridiculous rumour has been denied on here by Daniel.

If you're the person who started spreading that rumour via PM then I think you should apologise - it has caused a lot of trouble and unpleasantness and some people have left the board as a result.

I have been a member of this forum since 2011 and I use my brain and I understand how things work. Nothing more than that. 

I knew your post had been removed because it was there when I first read the board in the morning and it wasn't there later. Another poster had already remarked that it was rude and insulting so I expect that person had also reported it. 

You had also posted a link to your granddaughter's Instagram site and identified her as a schoolgirl - a very irresponsible and dangerous thing to do on a public forum. 

And yet you were calling other posters ignorant - you know a little bit about Instagram and other aspects of the internet. Bear in mind that a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.

Good morning all  There's some puddles on the roadway at the bottom of the rise. Not big ones, but puddles nevertheless. If I'd known that was coming I'd have spread some lawn stuff on the front lawn. Now I'll leave it until we get back from Lincs.
