Plants with legs

Think I'd buy three more, two for myself and one more - fix a label on it saying 'I bought myself a present and got one for you two 'cos I know you love dianthus'  and pop it on their doorstep. 


That will 'heap burning coals' of shame on the neighbours' heads and they'll know that you know what they've done - and if for some reason it wasn't them, then you've just 'done a nice thing'

Public services are stretched to breaking point simply because successive governments and local authorities get elected by promising to keep taxes down and being disingenuous about what the services really cost to run.  We expect more and more from the same (or less) money.  It's as simple as that.  The Great British Public votes with its pocket rather than its brain

Wonky - your garden is beautiful - and to think that this time last year it was just an overgrown mess. You should be very proud of yourself. im proud of you :-)

Keep your germs to yourself Wonky, and I'll do the same ((hugs)).  


I just finished the final potting on of the cordon tomatoes as the heavens opened here.  I've come indoors as OH doesn't think a person with Sniffles and Chestikoff should garden in the rain 


The bush tomato plants (the GW freebies) are on the table on the terrace waiting for their final pots - Wonky - I'll pot yours up for you and bring them when I deliver your pressies from Hosta - not until we're both germ-free 

Use of Mineral Oil to avoid Evaporation

I'd just give them a couple more centimetres of water and put them out of the sun.  They're pretty tough plants and in their native environment cope with fluctuating water levels.  


I don't like the idea of adding oil to water.
