I've always used Hammerite in the past and found it to stand up well to tough weather conditions.

What is this weed all over my lawn?

Posted: 13/04/2017 at 15:01

Yes, sycamore tree seedlings - mowing will deal with them.  In future try to mow the lawn before they grow their big leaves.  

Pea plants

Hi Homebird 


I would harden them off first - put them outside during the day and take them in at night for about a  week, then they should be fine planted out.

What do I do with my jurassic plant?

Posted: 13/04/2017 at 14:28

It looks like one of the varieties of aloe - it needs quite dry conditions - if the soil is wet let it dry out and then only water it occasionally.  


It also needs to be in quite bright sunlight, but not hot sunshine - an east or west facing windowsill is good.  


I hope that helps 


Not really sure why they call it Jurassic ... marketing people getting creative I expect

Hello folks ... I'm back.  Found some lovely yarn for Wonky's new jumper, but it's probably not a sensible work jumper - it's probably a lazy weekend jumper ... hold on and I'll post a pic ...

Hello Dyers End   Good to see you!


Amberspy - have you given your lurgy to Busy Lizzie and Wonky?    Well, I suppose you have to get rid of it somehow   Glad you're feeling better at least. 


Hope everyone with lurgy gets better ASAP!


Wonky, say Happy Returns of the day to Papa Womble from us on Sunday - hope you have a lovely day. 


I'm heading into town - back shortly... just JLewis haberdashery dept ... can I pick anything up for anyone?

OH. RIGHT.


AND WHAT'S INSTAGRAM?


See original post

 I don't use it myself, although I might in the future ... certainly several people I know find it useful.


Wiki explains it thus


"... Instagram is a mobile photo-sharing application and service that allows users to share pictures and videos either publicly or privately on the service, as well as through a variety of other social networking platforms, such as FacebookTwitterTumblr, and Flickr."
