Replacing conifer hedge with laurel/alternative

Posted: 09/02/2018 at 14:37

Holly and beech are two good hedges that can be kept neat ... not that quick growing to start with, but once they get going (after a couple of years or so) they make a decent height. quite quickly.

Back from weekly raid on W'rose and everything put away. 

Steam coming out of my ears at Jeremy Vine on R2 (nothing unusual there then)  talking about Walk On girls and the objectification of women ... JV and the speakers are criticising the young women who do the job . ........ it's not what it says about the women who do the job ........ it's what it says about the men who think it's acceptable to pay pretty young women to walk about in skimpy clothing in order to 'decorate' what are predominently male activities.  ....... but as usual it's the women who are getting the blame .... that's just as valid as saying that it's women who are to blame for prostitution  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! 

Fenugreek & Fennel for growing for seeds & peanuts

Posted: 09/02/2018 at 11:31

You want the herb-type fennel for seeds for cooking ... it's a biennial so it will produce seeds in its second year.

A friend buys Mr Fothergills's sprouting fenugreek seeds for producing sprouts ... I presume these would continue on to produce seed eventually if you grew it appropriately, but I've never tried.

I used to buy peanuts in their shells from a greengrocer for growing ... haven't seen them for a few years ... you may have to shop around at small independent greengrocers. 

Good luck

Hosta, My hubby does the same, think this was one of my key things to look for in a man perhaps subconsciously after experiences of youth!!!

Trust me, that is one of the most appealing chat up lines ever!.....Quoting Hosta,

'I get the instructions: I lay all the "bits" out, in order and count them and tick them off against the list in the box, then constantly go back to the instructions time and time again.

I've also been known to stick bits of masking tape the parts and number them before assembly begins.'

 think I'm in love! 

Joyce, toes like toothache!?! Ouchhh! I'm so glad they are better now! Was it turmeric tablets that helped?

Living willow fences - called a 'fedge' - are very popular around here ..........

They look amazing and take minimal maintenance.
