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

Take care everyone out there!  It's icy this morning too!

Moving a Rhododedron

'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.

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

and even if just for the wallpaper

Go on Hosta - plan a holiday in the not so far East
