I don't know that you need a licence but you definitely should have training.  I know people who have hurt themselves very seriously.

So do I - one chap I knew came within a couple of inches of emasculating himself  - get trained and always always always wear the right protective clothing .... please

Guess the plant

Hello folks

Pdoc - hope all turns out ok - I used to work for a solicitor and he was pretty good at sorting out neighbour disputes - I'll keep my fingers crossed ((hugs)) for you and Mrs Pdoc - it's a horrid situation to be in but illegitimi non carborundum and all that tosh

I spent the afternoon alternately making a curry and knitting - the curry has now been eaten and the knitting is ready for sewing together and doing the neckband and armhole band, so I've put that down for now - that sort of thing needs to be done when I'm properly awake.  You know me ... I'll be dozing soon

Love the look of Wonky's seeds - hopefully she'll get 100% germination and grow some lovely sturdy little plants to share with her mama

The wild daffodil aka Lent Lily Narcissus lobularis naturally grow in water meadows, as does the Snakeshead Fritillary  F. meleagris.

Quickest way to raise peonies from seeds please

In Or Out Of The EU Garden?

Perhaps we should leave the UN?  It's the Stockholm Convention that has banned many pesticides.  (Tongue in Cheek smiley needed )

In Or Out Of The EU Garden?

Pdoc posted this, but somehow it ended up on the Espresso thread (well, I s'pose espresso is French).

I've copied it to here - hope that's ok?

Not been posting on any threads for a while, but this one has got me "twitching".

Hosta asked about evidence yesterday, re car manufacturers etc. BMW have warned workers at its British factories that they would reconsider UK manufacturing, in the event of BREXIT, as have Honda and Toyota,

The USA has clearly stated, that they would much rather deal with a combined EU, rather than with us as a separate entity.

I have no wish to build a wall around us, with a keep out sign.

Years and years of uncertainty, the Swiss are still trying to sort out trade agreements 17 years after starting negotiations.

It is so much easier to negotiate from the inside.

Birds and palm tree

Are they actually causing any "harm" ?

IMHO most palms have dead foliage further down, which will, in time, fall off.

I can't imagine they're doing anything other than speeding up this process and making lovely nests at the same time.

I'd leave them all to it it they were in my garden.

I agree ... they'll do no harm ... enjoy watching them.

I've been enjoying the gorse flowers - there's lots on the light soil along the East Anglian coast - they've been blooming all winter but just now the bushes are absolutely covered
