Good morning all G'day Pat

Wet and muggy here - it would be nice to have some clear skies and a breeze ...

Yes, you can freeze skimmed milk and semi skimmed.

Goat milk also freezes well.  We used to freeze a lot when we kept goats so we had plenty for when the nannies' yield dropped.

Salix Flamingo Tree - Can I Save It??

Posted: 05/11/2015 at 16:00

Hi Bristol86

If you scrape a little of the bark back with your thumbnail and it's green underneath then it's alive, or at least it stands a good chance of survival.

Have you got anywhere you can plant it in the ground?  Salix = willow - they need plenty of moisture at their roots and ordinary potting compost just doesn't have enough body to hold enough moisture. 

Otherwise I'd repot it in John Innes No 3 loam based compost and cross my fingers.

Hosta, Simon Calderr has just been on the radio saying that he thinks that the UK Government will put their own security in at Sharm airport within the next few days, and then things will go back to normal.  People who have been trying to cancel holidays and get refunds have been told 'No'.

Slime mould isn't really a problem - info here https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=246

As for the 'gardeners' who laid the turf, they're talking out of their btms!!! Sorry, but really

It sounds to me as if those patches of long dark grass are due to dogs' urine (usually a bitch).  The grass usually dies off in the middle of the patch initially, then grows lush and dark due to the nitrogen in the urine.  Info here http://www.lawnsmith.co.uk/topic/lawn-cuttings/dog-bitch-urine

Hope that's helpful

AGAPANTHUS

Posted: 05/11/2015 at 12:43

I'm in Norfolk and mine are in pots outside in a sheltered corner - I just bubble wrap the pots to protect the pots themselves from frost damage.  The agapanthus have survived four winters like that perfectly well.
