Pdoc - plant sale? Is this confession time? It's good for the soul you know

Anyone seen Fairy, or have the builders cut through her internet cables?

What can I grow in the same planter as strawberries?

Do you mean planting something else among the strawberries or in a different area of the same planter?
If the latter tell us more about the planter - size, depth, growing medium, site etc.

I don't believe it!

I find that a soft graphite pencil or Chinagraph lasts the longest on plant labels.

Lots of suggestions for roses suitable for growing into a tree - you can refine your selection for height, colour, perfume, soil conditions and other requirements.

Brilliant site and gold standard rose grower.

Good morning all  G'day Pat

I'm in bed and OH has just delivered a mug of coffee

It's overcast this morning, and damp, but it seems definitely milder than of late - I've not been out to check the temps yet this morning

I think we may be going to the zoo today http://www.banhamzoo.co.uk/visit-the-zoo/

Glyphosphate

Posted: 01/05/2016 at 22:10

From the information I have, I don't object to glyphosate being used in a targeted way on pernicious weeds.

What I'm really concerned about is it being sprayed directly onto whole fields of wheat prior to harvest, in order to speed up the ripening process. 

I'm not sure I know anyone who'd like glyphosate in their daily bread

It didn't happen quite like that ... Smokey dropped dead at a very young age.  A suitably qualified scientific friend did a post mortem and diagnosed a heart malformation.    She had been having a go at taxidermy and asked if we wanted the cat back or if she could have a go at her taxidermy with it.  Wonky appeared to have moved on and I didn't think there would be a problem. 

How was I to know that said friend would be so chuffed with her taxidermy efforts that she donated Smokey to the local museum where she was a volunteer ... she wasn't the most 'child-focussed' of people, despite (or perhaps because of) having twin daughters of her own
