I agree with Verdun - I apply FB&B a little while before planting. 

I only use chicken manure pellets on the areas where I'm going to grow leafy veg such as brassicas and salad crops.  I find that if I use it on areas where I'm growing beans, peas, root veg etc, they put on too much leaf at the expense of the roots or seeds which is what I'm growing them for.

Good morning all     Where's Pat?  No sign of Hosta being up all night either - hopefully a good night's sleep was had by all. 

We had such a lovely evening - lots of chatting and catching up - J loved the food and lots was eaten and of course it was washed down well    Eventually I fell asleep on the sofa of course and was sent to bed ..... I've just woken and been into the kitchen where I['ve found everything washed up and left-overs have been cling-wrapped and put away

Now frozen croissants are thawed and proving in the kitchen ready to be popped into a hot oven as soon as I hear movement upstairs. There's a dawn chorus happening outside and I've got a mug of coffee .  All seems well with this little bit of  the world

Well, almost all ............. I appear to have cricked my neck in the night .......... but I'm sure it'll be better in a little while.

I've always hankered after an Ilex Handsworth New Silver (female with creamy white edges and purple stems and new shoots).

Oh by the way, I find it best to quote the whole post - then add my comment, then edit the quote - it seems to work better that way.

Almost there - because of an odd (and relatively recent) idiosyncracy you need to click on Quote and then on UnQuote (which appears when you click on Quote).

Then go to the " button and you should find it works

Hi all   I've had a text from Wonky asking me to let you know that she's found a lovely Gigi handbag   She would have told you herself but her tablet appears to have acquired a virus   She's sure her lovely hub will be able to fix it, but she's not going to ask him until after he's done both his gigs as he's busy with whatever it is that DJs have to do these days  

She sends ((hugs)) to all

I've a feeling the Shady Bank needs more hostas, but only the big tough ones that the slugs and snails find  too much for them

Obelixx   I've had many a happy time in Belgium - it suits me
