Something Eating my Shrubs

Posted: 22/04/2016 at 07:09

I found that nematodes were really effective against vine weevils on my shrubby border - two applications three years ago and no problems in that area since.

Only one of mine germinated - two other lots of tomatoes sown at the same time in the same compost  and kept in the same propagator had virtual 100% germination.

The magazine have sent me another pack and I'm giving them another try ... watch this space ............. but don't hold your breath

Hi folks - had a lovely if a little sad visit to Ma with Wonky - she's very frail and sleeping most of the time now, but she knew Wonky was there and said hello and smiled

Then Wonky and I went to the restaurant beside the harbour and had fish and chips before going on to Woottens at Wenhaston and having plants leap unaided into our trolley

By the way - I must say Wonky is a very good driver - my foot didn't press down on the floor once - I was very impressed

Just been watching Victoria Wood   and trying to take in the news about Prince  

It's been an odd day .........
