Oooh Liri, what an exciting prospect ... let us know what's going to be planted 

Viburnum flower buds not opening

Don't remove any buds - they'll come out in phases, a few at a time through the winter.


Enjoy - it's one of my absolute favourites

It'll open eventually - mine flowers throughout the winter during milder spells.


However, I am a bit worried about yours being in a pot - they grow into large shrubs and it'll need a large container to match, and John Innes No 3 loam-based compost, not multi-purpose.  

Good advice does not come quick

Washing machine ordered - virtually the same as last one which lasted 8 years without repair, and for a fraction less money than we paid back then.  They'll deliver on Friday between 7am and 7pm - I'll have to get up early unless one of you can let them in?

I'm a Tractor Girl Topbird - used to go and stand in the North Stand at Portman Road in my teens, worked in a building overlooking the pitch, frequently 'bumped into' the players at bars and cafés in Ipswich in the days when International class footballers were 'real people' who walked, talked and ate in normal places just like the rest of us.  My son met Sir Alf Ramsey in a park in Ipswich when he was a little boy and was given a few 'footballing tips' and an autograph.  Couldn't go with Bobby Robson's army to Wembly as Wonky was a baby and poorly with something or other   My parents were season ticket holders for years and brother has often been seen in the Directors' Box with his youngest daughter who has been team mascot.  


As a family we also sort of support Luton Town (Up the Hatters!) as Gt Grandfather was mayor of Luton and a director and Ma used to talk about how she loved going to her grandparents' house for tea with her footballing heroes.  


My ex was (and probably still is) a Canary

I agree Obelixx - we've never ever had a shedding problem with a Nordman tree

Morning BL 


For East Anglians the town/city distinction is very important. 'Town' is taken to refer to Ipswich Town FC, the home of the 'Tractor Boys' whereas 'City' is assumed to refer to Norwich City FC, the home of 'The Canaries'. The two must never be confused  


Good luck with the baking ...
