Hello folks - car delivered to garage, I went with it as I'd not used that garage before, and then I got a cab back.  Now I have to wait until they've had a look ...

Families eh?   Except for me and Wonky of course ((hugs)), and of course son and a few others

Indoor Olive Tree

I think you're right Jo.  I'd have it outside in all but the hardest weather - as long as the potting medium is gritty and free-draining, and it's not watered in the winter they're fine outside in a sheltered spot.

They can cope with cold as long as their roots are not wet.

I would bubble-wrap the pot for the winter.

But it's as well to know these things so we can take as many preventative measures as possible ..... Kettle's on

Had the eggs been laid before the netting was erected? 

I went over every broccoli leaf, back and front, removing butterfly eggs, before I put the netting up.

Hi Allybee

It sounds as if your rowans are coming to the end of their life.  They're not long-lived trees

Green garlic

Posted: 01/09/2015 at 10:09

Green garlic usually means that it's immature.  Absolutely fine to eat and regarded as something a bit special (lots of recipes online) but it's unlikely to store well.

Did you harvest it too soon?  When was it planted?

Grass in block paving

Posted: 01/09/2015 at 10:07

If the paving is regularly swept that should stop soil/detritus collecting in the grooves which is what the seeds germinate in.

More coffee being drunk here - waiting for lorry to take car to garage - as it's a straight tow job they could only give me a 3 hour window. 

Good luck re knee Hosta
