Parsnip problems!

Posted: 06/01/2015 at 17:01

There is apparently a nematode that attacks parsnip roots and causes deformities but I know nothing about them.

Lyn ((hugs)) Clari's suggestion sounds good to me.


Also you may well have thought of this, but could Marie Curie be of any help?

It sounds to me as if your mum is determined to remain at home, and that's what Marie Curie are all about.


Sometimes we can be so close to a situation that we can't see the wood for the trees, so please forgive me if I'm teaching my grandmother to suck eggs

Just want to say that while I know how irritated and annoyed people are, I think it'd be good if we left the subject of MA now.  

I just think that as this is a public forum it really doesn't reflect the usually kind and helpful nature of people on here if we continue to complain about him, particularly as all is quiet at the moment - new posters may be put off and we don't want that to happen

Shall get off soapbox and put kettle on - coffee or tea?  Oh, and there's fruit cake for later

Good morning folks

No frost overnight and temp already up to 6.8C  but quite damp outside at the moment.

Hyacinths in the New Year

Lovely and I hope you're enjoying the perfume too. 

If you give them some fertiliser after the flowers have finished, it will help feed the bulbs and they may flower again next year too, although the flowers get smaller year after year they're still pretty.
