Clari  Whoops! Misread that - thought you said you'd been having it off since before 8!  One way to keep warm I suppose

Hello folks - have been driving around Norfolk - we have sleet!!!!!!!!!!


Busy day today and looks like another one tomorrow - this being retired is tiring

Recommend what to plant please.

I think it would be best to rejuvenate the laurel you already have there by some hard pruning - the laurel will soon bush out and fill the gaps.  Then clear the ivy, feed and mulch the hedge to promote growth and if you feel unsure that it will bush out enough, you can buy a couple of bare root laurel hedging plants to plant and fill in the gaps.


Remember hedges shouldn't be cut back in the nesting season i.e. from February to mid July, so this is a job best done next autumn/winter.

Mixing dahlia in containers

Posted: 08/02/2017 at 08:21

Several containers with a well-grown dahlia plant in each can be arranged in groups very effectively.

Good morning all  G'day Pat 


I hope Joyce has been able to get some rest. All is quiet here - OH is still asleep and as he's not working today I'm trying not to wake him.

Joyce ((hugs)) my throat wasn't too sore, but certainly a cough is the main symptom, and a drippy nose   Hope you haven't got it
