Greetings to you AliceRose Gregory

This is a UK based forum, and most members are in Great Britain (with a few honourable exceptions) so we may not be able to provide you with an answer - however, some of our members are well-travelled so you may be lucky ....

Hello Madelon

This is an advice forum attached to a gardening magazine.  We do not manufacture or supply any seeds.

Best wishes - I hope you find what you're looking for.


Begonia tubers and dahlias

Posted: 23/11/2015 at 07:39

I wrap dahlia tubers in newspaper and put them in a box in the garage - I make sure that the dahlia stems are pointing downwards so that they drain and rot doesn't set in.

Mirrors in gardens present a real danger to birds who crash into them injuring or killing themselves - they are unable to distinguish between a reflection and the open sky


Painting walls a light colour will increase the amount of reflected light in the garden, without using mirrors.

Thank you Pat - I used to love haymaking when we had the smallholding - as long as the weather held - we were lucky most years!    We had a much smaller acreage  and had individual pens for the horses and goats, so we made the old fashioned smaller bales - much easier for us to handle.

The sound of next door's windscreen being scraped - I'm so glad I've retired - just over two years ago I'd have been out there doing that ...

Also think the roads are slippery - we're not far from a main road and the big hospital, and I've heard the sirens of emergency vehicles several times already this morning -  thoughts with everyone heading to the salt mines today ((hugs))  take lots of care.
