  Think most jobs at the BBC are handed out here

It's where tv execs seem to spend most of their time  ..... either there or here

I'm wondering if you've inadvertently used contaminated manure https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=477

I know it affects delphiniums badly - I don't know whether it affects gladioli.

Does anyone else know?

I don't mind a proper weather forecast - but I hate the way the media spreads alarm and despondency about everything

Quick question about bird box

If you use a wooden one, it's a good idea to get one with a metal plate around the hole if you have woodpeckers or squirrels in the area as they will try to enlarge the hole to get at the eggs/chicks.  

At least the woodcrete ones would give them toothache
