Will Puschkinia Libanotica cross with English Bluebells

Posted: 30/03/2016 at 11:01

Don't worry - Puschkinia are Scilloideae which are a different species to bluebells which are Hyacinthoides - they won't cross-pollinate each other.

Think the 'new site' is happening in stages - I've noticed some changes - the What to do now section has a new layout - much easier to follow on a smaller screen

Back from seeing the nurse - they're happy with my BP - much improved on previous times when they've used the electric gadget which I find so painful. However, it was a real struggle to get any blood out of me - I'd had nearly a litre of water to drink this morning so was nicely hydrated, but nothing would come from the first arm and only with a struggle from the second. Never been like that before

Maybe if my BP had been higher it would have squirted out - or doesn't it work like that ?

Now for a quick brekky and coffee before tennis  ...

Good morning all   G'day Pat

Hope the recovery has continued Wonky and that work is ok today 

Sun shining, birds singing here - I'm on water only 'cos I've got my annual BP and Fasting Bloods check up later this morning ... then tennis

The tomato seeds I sowed on Saturday are up! 

Whats best for screening a warehouse - upto 5-6m. Please see images.

I'm sure that warehouse wall will seem much less oppressive when your trees are in leaf and the sun is higher in the sky.  And at least it doesn't have windows for people to peer out of at you.

Enjoy your garden
