Climber for a cotoneaster

Posted: 11/02/2016 at 07:01

Don't try to plant your climber directly against the cotoneaster - plant it a few feet away and train it towards the shrub.

G'day Pat   thanks for that info - I'll see if I can get it.

Chicky, that sounds like an evening well spent

Morning Frit   only down to 0.1C in our sheltered back garden, but I suspect it's lower out the front where it's a bit of a frost hollow - there's certainly a lot of sparkle on the roof tops and the grass. 

Mystery sprouting bulbs - can they be moved?

The other thing to remember is ... they might be growing in an area that is just right for them - the right amount of sun/shade etc.  So before moving them, take a while to consider ...

Bug identification!

That does look to me more like slug damage - lift up those module trays and look underneath at the gaps between the modules, and under the lip around the edges - the blighters get everywhere!!!

Lawn cutting

Hmmm - just looked at the Met Office website - here in Norfolk we're in for a few frosts over the next few nights.

Check for your area before mowing.  It's not a disaster if your grass gets frosted after cutting, but it will 'scorch' the cut ends and turn them brown so it won't look brilliant.

Just as well we're holidaying in Cornwall earlier than usual this year, otherwise there'd be nothing left to see ... well, flowers that is
