Burnet roses have tiny fern-like leaves and the prettiest little blooms with a lovely scent

Dove, can I be your friend please?

I love Bowmore, in particular Bowmore Darkest.

Of course Pdoc   Pop round for a sharpener this evening   I do like Bowmore (I've a feeling that this is a bottle I bought for Pa a while back - think he went off his whisky when he had to have thickener in it ) I've not tried the Darkest - I shall look out for it

Don't give up on very leggy tomato seedlings

Hi Munzle

This should be of help

Apple tree vs wildlife garden?

Posted: 28/04/2015 at 16:16

At our last home our neighbours cut down a mature apple tree - the consequent reduction in bird-life in the surrounding gardens was noticeable, and in fact was evidenced by the lower numbers I recorded in following years for the Big Garden Birdwatch.

However, I'm sure you could lighten the canopy by judicious pruning of the branches at the right time of year - this should allow you enough light to grow the other plants you want - and it will probably be really good for the apple tree too

Anyone tried the central locking button, keeps them all out.


Yes, I use that when I'm driving in the city .  I did once have a drunk try to open the passenger door when I was in a traffic jam in the rush hour.  20+ years ago when I was driving a beaten up Citroen - fortunately the road ahead cleared a bit and I put my foot down leaving him off-balance and falling onto his btm in the traffic - result !!!

When I'm driving with the top down my handbag travels in the passenger footwell, whether OH's feet are there or not
