Did it come from the same nursery as that rose bush we saw earlier?


Give it a little while and it'll bloom nicely for Pat and Ginger

Come indoors and sit on the sofa and watch rubbish telly - I've got my feet up and I'm knitting. That way I can't slip over on the wet terrace or make big footprints in the lawn

I agree with dove but I don't peel mine


I find that once the skin starts getting wizened they really do need peeling.


What type of trees to plant a long a driveway

Posted: 24/01/2016 at 14:06

I'd go for a selection of different native-type crab apples as here

You'll have blossom in the spring and fruit for jellies and/or wildlife - wild birds will love the apples both on the tree and when they fall - and in the winter you'll have flocks of long tailed tits arriving to scour the cracks in the bark for little insects. 

Some naturalised spring bulbs underneath and it'll be a picture without being overly formal.

Wonky ((hugs))  think it would help if the landlord pulled his proverbial out and gave them a nice thick carpet and underlay   But yes, I know your landlord ... and he does have his plus points too ... somewhere   Told you Thursday is a 'notable day'
