Hi Nicky   I would contact these people for their advice.  They're usually very helpful.

disappearing daffodils?

Posted: 05/03/2015 at 09:30

Last year was very dry and daffodils do like a good soaking every now and then ...?

Thanks all - I'm much better now - think it must've been an 'early morning thing' and the tail end of the bug. 

Becky - we're not keen on 'nice and warm', and who'd do all that needs doing in the garden?  Getting out there in the promised sunshine this weekend will probably clear my head

Hosta ... that's so nice

Verdun ... good luck

KEF ...

Smiles to everyone else too numerous and busy to mention

Harvesting Potatoes

I think the MPC on it's own would be fine  - I'd rather save the leaf mould for mulching perennials etc - when I grow potatoes I grow them in the ground so what do others think?

.........  BTW, does anyone else find that people are beginning to start every sentence these days with the word "so"? It drives me mad.

Me too!

I've just spent the last 20 minutes sneezing and my sinuses are blocked and painful again - when will this lurgy be over

Good morning all   Frost on the roofs this morning and a pink sky, but they say it's going to be warmer than the Med by the weekend

OH has just brought me my second coffee - he has an early start at work this morning. 

There's a  blackbird sitting up on the roof singing loudly, I think he's staking claim to a nest site in the neighbour's hedge behind us.

None of my hostas are doing anything yet - and I don't expect to see anything of them for a while - it's cooler here in Norfolk than down in Devon where Hostafan is

It's my birthday

Happy Birthday to Mr & Mrs David Matthews - hope you're having a lovely day
