Sowed mine at the end of October Hosta 

Hello Forkers - April edition

We find footballs in the garden too Amberspy ....... sometimes in the wildlife pond   sometimes in the middle of a clump of big hostas 


We've been known to keep it for a while ............. then sen it back with a polite note taped to it asking them to be more careful ........... we did get a nice note of apology written by the boys .... they are nice boys really 


Lots of seeds in the heated propagator and in the mini greenhouse ....... and the veg patch raked down ready for some direct sowing.  The broad beans are looking fantastic 


The first fly of the summer has invaded the sitting room just 'cos I've decided it's time to put my feet up

I agree with B3 - if you have ants in your compost bin the contents are too dry.

Hi 


I'm glad to hear you're not a keen gardener ...... if you were this news would be soul destroying. 


As you're not into gardening that's fine.


What you have there are the flowering/fruiting bodies of the dreaded Horsetail

Pull them up and bag them and put them in the bin.

I don't think we get midges in London but they certainly behaved like them.



 I've certainly seen midges in London   particularly around areas where bark chippings have been used as a mulch, and the weather is warm and damp.
