HELLO FORKERS!

I know Panda - I'm so chuffed   They do know that I'm a regular customer - and of course they know OH - I've just been told that I'll get my Privilege Card 10% discount too

HELLO FORKERS!

Not only half price and free delivery, but I think it's the one already fitted out with the hooks for tools etc

Guess what OH and I will be doing on Monday - that's right, levelling the ground and laying the slabs - but it won't be too onerous - it's only a little shed

Second hailstorm here, this time with thunder.  Just heard from Wonky that she and her father are sheltering in the garden shed with his power tools! 

OH has just phoned from work - the farm shop where he works is in the grounds of the garden centre where I ordered my shed the other day.  The man says it's out of stock and the suppliers have a big backlog of orders

 

Would I like an ex-display model from the GC, already assembled and painted the colour I like?  ............... For half price ...............to be delivered on Tuesday?????

Would I heckaslike!!!!!!!!!!!

......how do the police/council know what your doing? I live in a village and have never seen a policeman, (to be fair he did live abroad) would a neighbour complain to the authorities? ......

Possibly ... people complain enough when farmers flail hedgerows at the wrong time of year.

My lawn is sick - please help!

I think most of us probably have the same initial thought as Dave and are waiting for Amelia's answer to his question before offering advice.

No idea about the greenhouse Dirk, but I've improved the link for you so it's clickable

Cherry Morello (dwarf) lack of leaves.

I think they're too close to that Leylandii hedge - we've had a dry spring and Leylandii are notorious for sucking all the moisture out of the soil around them.  Your trees don't stand a chance having been planted there

Give your cherries a jolly good soaking - three buckets full of water each today, and then a bucket-full each every other day through the summer unless the soil gets boggy or we get a really wet summer.

Then find and prepare a better spot for them and move them in the winter when they're dormant - or get rid of the Leylandii - or both!

Ash trees

 Do they look like these?  If so, lucky you, they're the male ash flowers so you will not get the ash keys from that tree this year.  Ash trees can change gender; that's obviously what's happened with yours this year http://www.habitataid.co.uk/british-trees-plants-seeds/Common-Ash--Fraxinus-excelsior.html

We have two ash trees -  usually  they are one of each so we get lots of keys each autumn and lots of seedlings in the spring - but we love the trees and touch wood, they're still healthy
