I am really surprised at some plants which are described as invasive. 

It almost seems that if a plant grows happily in the UK without turning up its toes at the slightest provocation someone somewhere will declare it to be set on world domination

Huh!!!  Apparently Wonky has been sitting out in the garden in the sunshine in her dressing gown with her coffee and the cats, watching the birds ...... She's only an hour away - we've still got sleet!!!  And there I was feeling sorry for her walking to the bus stop

She sends greetings to you all - her tablet's misbehaving again 

I'm going to make a big pot of proper chicken soup for our supper - then it will be ready for us when I return home from a visit I've promised to make this afternoon.

Lesley - there was nearly an inch on cars and roofs earlier, but it's disappearing now.  Still a few fine flakes falling (how's that for alliteration? ) but I don't think it'll amount to anything ........... much .........

I may take you up on the offer of your simmit Fairy ........ the flakes are falling faster now ........

ID please

Skimmia japonica

They prefer neutral to acidic soil, so if you're on chalk that may be the cause of the mottled leaves.  I'd give it a dose of fertilizer designed for acid loving plants. 

 

@ Aym - is the stephanotis in a pot?  If so I'd repot in good quality  fresh MPC and see if that improves things.

However, the weather man on R4 said it's going to turn warmer for the second half of the week - he mentioned 15C   I shall have to get my swimsuit out!!!

How to stop puppy from eating everything

Posted: 06/03/2016 at 19:50

I prescribe puppy (and owner)  training classes and lots of toys  and activities to keep him occupied.

Good luck

Do we get a photo of the puppy?  We're a dog-friendly crowd (well, most of us are )
