Morning Lesley and Topbird
They grit the road here, but that's because it's a bus route (although it may also be because it leads to the Golf Club ) . From the report on the EDP website it doesn't look as if the A140 was gritted http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/watch_aftermath_of_chaos_on_a140_at_roughton_after_12_vehicles_come_off_road_in_icy_conditions_1_4420375
Take care everyone out there! It's icy this morning too!
'Shallow rooted' doesn't mean that a plant only has shallow roots - it means that the plant has roots which need to be near the surface and therefore it should not be planted too deeply - it may also have roots which go deeper into the soil.
A mature Rhododendron ponticum can be up to 8m tall and of course has deep roots as well as the shallower ones.
However, I don't think the question was about Rhod. ponticum, but one of the smaller 'garden types'.
Good morning all G'day Pat
Oh well Pat, these things can't be helped - it's nice to have visitors isn't it and maybe your OH will be able to download it for you.
There was a frost overnight, but the temperature was up to 2.6C when I got up, and now we've got a lovely pink sunrise
I've not grown it, but have eaten it shredded in a salad, a bit like celeriac remoulade - really good.
Panda ((hugs)) take care of yourself.
Gg - love the pie glad you liked it
Hosta, sounds to me a bit like chronic fatigue after a nasty virus and antibiotics ((hugs)). Take some Selenium ACE to boost your immune system, and take it easy while your body recovers.
BL - Hosta has no plans to visit East Anglia ..... yet! I'm twisting his arm
Apart from all the wonderful gardens I've already told him about, I think they both would enjoy visting http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/blickling-estate/features/explore-the-house-at-blickling-estate
and http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/felbrigg-hall-gardens-and-estate/features/the-hall-at-felbrigg even if just for the wallpaper
Go on Hosta - plan a holiday in the not so far East
Oh dear All you can do is advise on the proper action and then do what she wants - but she can't blame you if it never looks right - we'll be your witnesses
