Have you got yours yet?

I think it's rude to call other people's genuinely held  opinions 'stupid' - it's something I wouldn't do.

That's enough for me on this thread.

I really don't think anyone should be calling anyone else on here 'stupid'.

Disagreeing is one thing - rudeness is another.

But there was an awful lot of public 'adoration' of Charlie when she was on Groundforce - all to do with her natural assets and her underpinnings or lack of same, if I remember correctly. Garbage of course - and nothing was done to encourage that was it?  

As for 'facts', I was taught not to take anything as a given unless supported by evidence.

Hosta - glad you enjoyed the opera - was it Glyndbourne Touring or ETO?

You could try hanging old CDs, scrunched up kitchen foil and other reflective rattly clattery things from the branches - pigeons are incredibly stupid and seem to take fright at a lot of harmless things - maybe that's cos Pansyface keeps charging up and down waving and screaming at them - she's making them nervous!

Good luck!

I've always wanted to go to Aldeburgh (becasue of the MR James connection), is it a nice place to spend a weekend?

Lovely - absolutely lovely, as is the whole area - and of course there's the Aldeburgh Festival etc and loads of other interesting stuff happening around,  yet it's still pretty unspoilt and rural.  Minsmere RSPB reserve just up the coast, plus the wonderful Walberswick, Southwold and Dunwich ... I could go on and on - it's my old stamping ground and I love it.  If you want any info just shout

I agree Aster - but this government really doesn't understand how most people think and feel.

Those who have already decided to vote to stay in don't need it; those who have already decided to vote out will be angered, and those who have yet to make up their minds will feel patronised.

An own goal if ever there was one

Hi Kateandtheclay

I wouldn't have planted a Hydrangea petiolaris in a container - they grow into big hungry plants and need lots of nutrition and water.  If I did put one in a container it would have to be a very large one containing John Innes No 3 loam based compost.

If you've used an ericaceous peat based or multi-purpose compost it's unlikely to be happy there for long.  It is also the preferred home of vine-weevil grubs which will eat the roots of many plants.

When you take it out look for vine weevil grubs among the roots
