Welcome!  It's good to see another East Anglian Eric's Mum   I'm from Suffolk, transplanted into Norfolk  

 

Thinking of upsetting the neighbors?

We grew broad beans and Victoria plums in the tiny inner-city front garden at our last place  - we were often asked what those pretty black and white flowers were!

Talkback: Christmas compost

Posted: 25/05/2015 at 11:18

To be fair Edd, it's not good practice to put bread or any cooked food into a 'normal' garden compost bin - it's almost guaranteed to attract rats!

Putting it into one of your Hot Composters would be fine of course

Perhaps rather than 'cannot' the instructions should say 'should not'

Broad beans - should they look like this?

Did you sow them there or have they been grown in pots and planted out?

OH would love a sarrecenia - we saw some in a big tub at a nursery near Nut, and he was smitten - I wonder if we could grow them here - what do you think?

(It's good policy to encourage the Undergardener to take an interest, don't you find?)

Oooh, have a lovely drive Hosta - OH and I stayed close to Boscastle for our first Cornish holiday together Lovely area.  We'll be just a bit further down the coast later in the year

Wonky - lots of girlish giggling and shrieking just up the hill around 1am - think they'd staggered home. 

HELLO FORKERS!

It's all over now Wonky - it closed with the Foo Fighters last night - we couldn't really hear it well enough to enjoy it.  They should either turn it up or down - half way is no good at all.

Norwith will be empty today - they've all put yellow and green football shirts on and got on the train to Wembley - hope there's some people left to to to the Food Fair at the farm shop ...

HELLO FORKERS!

Planting Lilies - when?

Posted: 25/05/2015 at 08:51

I think they'll be fine - the ones in the ground are getting their roots down, and of course, it has been a bit chilly - they'll get going when the weather warms up.

What do others think?
