We must remember this thread and others like it, so that when we get those regular queries from the design students we can point them in the right direction

Good morning all

Wet and dull here - but great excitement as a flock of noisy Whooper swans just flew over on their way to the winter feeding grounds in the Fens - I heard them and rushed out in my jimjams and slippers to have a look

I would use a pot inserted in the neck of the milk churn - don't fill the whole churn up with compost - that way you can ring the changes seasonally and it'll be much easier to renew compost/feed/pot on as needed

Not sure where Jo is - would H. integrifolia be hardy enough for her garden?

Pdoc ((hugs)) bdooly hellish isn't it?  But it will get better ((hugs)). 

Re bracelet - Google for your nearest metal detector club and email them asking if someone could come and help search for the bracelet (of great sentimental value).  They're usually a good bunch and payment by way of a bottle of something warming is usually very acceptable.  Good luck


P.S.  Look here South Yorkshire Metal Detecting Club offer a free service helping to find lost jewellery etc.

Talkback: Three ways to buy fruit trees and bushes

Posted: 26/11/2015 at 15:41

Peach Avalon Pride is available from Reads Nursery .  I've bought several fruit trees/bushes from them and am very pleased indeed with their service and the quality of their plants.  They send very well-packaged plants all over the UK.  You can email them for advice - they are very helpful.

I have no connection with them other than as a satisfied customer.

... You would think after all these years someone could design something better......

Those who experience the need are too busy gardening to design tools - hence all the inefficient tools on the market
