The gains from human error

That would be to make sure they matched for surface/grain and colour - one slightly paler door from another batch would really look awful - it's the sort of service I'd expect from a top notch supplier and not necessarily from B&Q - I'm impressed.

Pruning buddlia

I heartily agree Verdun - a few minutes deadheading buddleia once a week kept mine flowering into November last year

Tomatoes - time to sow!

Posted: 02/03/2017 at 16:34

I always sow my outdoor ones in April too - absolutely no point in starting earlier - they just get pale and lanky and floppy with having to be on the dining room windowsill for too long.  I've always had good crops from plants sown in April so I'm not going to change now

That happened to me a few years ago - an eight setting dinner service and accompanying cutlery arrived as expected, followed a few days later by another complete set. They said it would cost them more for me to return the extra set and told me to keep them - great to have a spare set to cover breakages in the future 

Pressure Washer

i noticed a Lidl tv ad that said it'll be stocking pressure washers ... next week or the week after ... I used to be sceptical about the quality of Lidl offers of electrical equipment etc, but other folks seem to think they're good value


Just thought I'd mention it in case anyone's interested in checking out a possible bargain

so much temptation!

Just sorted a new fixed rate tariff for gas and electricity - in the few minutes I was 'on hold' I started browsing the new Chiltern seed catalogue - at this rate I'll have found a use for the saving I've just arranged
