Conifers dying back

Did you shield the conifers from the spray?  Sprays give off a fine invisible mist that spreads and drifts in the air - years ago I carefully targetted a few dandelions on the lawn ... and ended up with a dead patch a foot across

Sounds as if the wedding went splendidly BL - Fidget has posted some pics ... somewhere ...

Dd, you have my sympathy ((hugs)) - I remember trying to milk my goats with a bandaged broken thumb - don't think I've ever felt so frustrated - it was a useful lesson when I went on to work with seriously disabled youngsters - if I felt that frustrated over such a little thing for what I knew would be a limited period of time, how do they feel when their disability impacts on everything they do ......... for ever .............. It explains moodiness, tantrums etc

ID please

It's a prunus - my guess is that it'll sucker freely - especially if you disturb the roots a bit.

Starting a flower or gardening business online

Posted: 13/10/2015 at 08:22

That depends on the cost.

Most florists, even the small ones, have their own websites and online shops nowadays - for example, if I wanted to send my daughter some flowers I'd google florists and the name of her home town and come up with about a dozen to choose from, all of whom deliver.

What would you be offering in addition to that?

Talking of OCD/CDO - don't think I have it, but all my books are arranged properly - non-fiction according to subject, fiction alphabetically - likewise the CDs.  How else do you find the one you're looking for?   We've got hundreds of books.

Even the cookery books are grouped by author/subject matter e.g. Fish: Floyd, Stein etc - or is that COD?
