Good morning all   Anyone else about yet?

BM, as long as you gve them a little tlc when they wake up in the spring I should think your astrantias will be fine.  As with all plants in pots, try not to let the pots freeze solid.

 

Tips on starting a balcony compost bin?

Slugs and worms have co-existed for millennia and seem to leave each other alone.  It's far more likely to eat your plants!

So fed up with all this rain!!!!

I think it depends on the frost - something that just 'singed' the foliage would be ok but I wouldn't want a sharp frost on them.

****** NHS box tickers. I need to vent

Appalling!  You really need to make a complaint to NHS England - how to do it is here http://www.england.nhs.uk/contact-us/complaint/  and c.c. your MP.  

Unless people do this the powers that be will believe the statistics that tell them things are fine!

Good morning all  

We've had a mild night here - the temp didn't drop below 9.4C 

 I wish the rest of the ash leaves would drop, I want to get them all raked up and am trying to avoid having to do it twice ....

Do you grow Aconitum's?

Too late, Mrs F has told me under no circumstances am I planting it in our garden. So that's that. Aconitum seeds anyone?

I'll take them off your hands Fishy - secure back garden here - no small children in family (or even extended family) and plenty of other poisonous plants to blame if anyone does become ill (arum maculatum, lily of the valley and foxgloves to name just a few - and then of course there's the rhubarb leaves and the potato fruits?)

Honestly, if you don't want them let me know and I'll PM you my address and something for the postage
