My only proviso with Lyn's advice would be if it's a standard - if so don't cut it back to two inches from the soil!!!


An idiot who thought he knew best nipped the tops out of some special fuchsia cuttings I was growing for standards - that was nearly 40 years ago and I've still not forgiven him

Plastic boards

Probably cheaper if you can get them second hand or from a skip - otherwise I'd stick to scaffold boards or similar.

East Anglian Bluebell Expedition

Posted: 21/02/2016 at 09:13

While we were eating cake in the café on the Snowdrop Walk this week, we talked about arranging an expedition to see bluebells.

We talked about various venues and I promised to do a bit of research ... we mentioned Blickling Hall ... it seems that there are lovely bluebell woods on the estate and of course there are lovely gardens, the house itself and several eateries). 

We won't be able to set a date yet as so much will depend on the weather between now and then, but what do you think?

No James - when you're chitting seed potatoes they need as much light as possible so that they grow short sturdy shoots, rather than long spindly ones.

It's lovely - and the matt finish shows the silver embossing off beautifully - definitely a bit swish!
