Tulip Spade Monty!!??

Posted: 16/04/2016 at 17:24

That's not like the one Monty was using last night.  That looks as if it's designed for planting individual bulbs.  The one used on tv had a broader and shallower blade/spit and was used for opening up a trench at the right depth for tulip planting.

A new career.

Just don't load all the prunings into your car, leave the car for a while with the windows closed, then get in and drive it with the windows still closed.

Transport it in the car with the windows OPEN and you'll be fine - but better still, just shred and put on the compost heap.  That's what Nutcutlet and her OH do and I can assure you they're still hale and hearty

I know Pansyface - probably a bit of overkill   but we're so excited to have frogspawn in this relatively new pond and when I lived in the country I've seen spawn killed by a sharp frost.

I know we're nearer to the city and this garden is quite sheltered but ...

Glad you got properly seen to.

Pat - they're good parents, they sit very tight except for when they swap shifts

The webcam will be much more exciting when the chicks have hatched and the parents bring their meals - I can watch for ages - last year the interaction  between the four youngsters was great
