Hurrah!  Clari and Pdoc ........ both in one day ............... 

All we need now is DD - hope she's ok ((hugs)) DD if you're peeking in 

Clari ........ a similar thing happened to me once ............ I didn't get either job as they said I was over qualified ............ but I'd been doing them both for twelve months on half the money   Apparently they thought I should be more ambitious for my career  ... never mind the fact that I had two elderly parents I was responsible for and had found that the work and I suited each other.  Neither of the two appointees stayed in the jobs long, and I was asked to re-apply .................... huh 

I hope whatever happens it's right for you ((hugs))   

and paint on a wall ............ that's a bit rash isn't it???  Don't overdo things now ......... 

I've been out there most of the morning weeding, watering and mulching ...... I managed to shorten a lovely strong shoot of my Clematis Venosa Violacea so I've turned it into a cutting ...... ages since I've taken a clematis cutting ... I usually layer them ...... internodal into gritty compost and then put in the shade ..... is that right?

tomatoes and courgettes

Posted: 03/04/2017 at 09:05

Hi Rosemummy

I don't think it's warm enough for them outside, even in a pop up greenhouse, just yet ... I only sowed my toms and courgettes on Saturday.  

Also there's a possible cold snap coming up in mid April 

so I wouldn't put them out until after that's over, unless you can bring them in at night and in cold snaps. 

Tomatoes and courgettes just don't grow if they're not warm enough.  

Willow root containment

I have no experience myself but I was doing some research for a friend a while back and found this 

".... Avoid planting living willow near building foundations or drainage pipes - at least 1.5 x the maximum intended hedge height away...."  on this website 

I hope that helps.
