What is your weather like?

Posted: 01/04/2016 at 06:24

Frost on the roof of the little greenhouse - the thermometer says it got down to 0.06C last night and is still there and it's a bit misty.

Take care if you're travelling this morning, I think there may be some denser patches of fog.

Sophora prostrata "little baby".

I can't get that link to work, but if you click here

then put 'sophora' into their search box, it should come up with the plant you're after

I would add that Urban Jungle are local to me and have a very good reputation.

Value or not?

Verdun, Wonky bought Wendy's Wish for about £1.50 ish, as an 8" tall plant - from the reduced counter at The Range 'cos it had dried out a bit.  Now that's what I call a bargain

Value or not?

If it's like it's cousin S, Wendy's Wish, it'll grow and grow and grow - Wonky has one

A great talent and by all accounts a real 'good guy'.  He'll be sadly missed

Thanks Verdun; news from the staff at The Lovely Home is that she had a peaceful night, a light breakfast and then went back to sleep.  All seems as well as it can be.

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts.

Pumps & wildlife ponds

As Lyn says, you can't really combine the two - wildlife ponds need still water - also all the little invertebrates etc would get sucked into the pump and die
