How long does garden screening last?

Posted: 29/01/2016 at 07:29

@ Van Leeuwen Green - question refers to rolls of screening, not living bamboo/willow plants.

Most bamboos and willows are not suitable for anything other than the largest of gardens, neither should willows be planted near buildings or drains etc.

What a smashing plant that cutting has turned into

Hi folks - Nora says the tech team have been told about the problem and it will be sorted asap - just not sure when that is

Dove, not much to look at on this thread, gap between 10.47 and my recent post!

Glad you had a good lunch.

It can't be that no one was chatting 'cos I wasn't here ... can it?

Neither are mine David - I've just sent a message to the Mods asking if there's a problem, but not sure if they're in the office - it's a bit late in the day - we may just have to muddle along until tomorrow and someone picks up the message

Hmmm so have I BL - perhaps something going on behind the scenes to do with the re-vamp

A lovely lunch in the city with Wonky  - Carluccio's - a sharing platter of calamari to start with then DD had chicken saltimbocca and I had rosemary bread-crumbed lamb cutlets with a lovely mix of veggies, and a glass or two of something white, chilled and Italian. Lots of nattering and a bit of shopping and it was time for her to catch her train and me to catch my bus .......... a really lovely day

Now I'd better have a look and see what you've all been up to - guess some of you will have been out in the garden in the sunshine - I got a line of washing dry outside!!!

Must be spring!!!
