We had a leaflet through the door from Royal Mail the other day saying that the size of 'small parcels' was going up - it seemed to be imminent.

Danny, this book is available on Amazon for £1.18 - it's one of the late great Geoff Hamilton's Penny Pincher series, and I'm sure that you'll find it full of useful ideas and

Snowdrop bulbs

My snowdrops are peeking through the soil already

Well, the tree is dressed and sparkly and my Christmas present is hidden in the garage.


 I think it's what I asked for  it had to be collected from the GC - it's big and had to go in the boot of the car with the lid up.  I promised to keep my eyes shut, but as OH doesn't drive it was a bit hairy negotiating the ring road and A11 on the way home 

Snowdrop bulbs

You'll find them on sale around March time after they've finished flowering - they don't grow well as dried bulbs so the usual practice is to buy them 'in the green'.  

There'll be loads of sellers in the small ads in the back of Gardeners World magazine.  

Just make sure you buy guaranteed English grown ones as some unscrupulous people dig up wild ones abroad and sell them.  

Lots of different varieties available so now is the time of year to do some googling to see which ones you want to buy. 

You might find some in little pots in garden centres in January, but it's an expensive way to buy them.

Well, this is the explanation - I should think that he was odds on to win so they had to have some sort of 'cover all contingency' and it is a live show - I'm constantly amazed at the smooth way these things work, but there's always likely to be a small amount of human error creep in - far better than to go back to the bad old days when everything was stage managed and rehearsed to within an inch of it's life and then pre-recorded 'just in case'.
