Frank - there's still plenty of value in the more traditional gardening methods - and sometimes the quick and easy way will fail, and we need to know how to get back to basics.


You have a lot of valuable knowledge - I would miss your contributions.

Snowdrop Walk - Anglesey Abbey

I'm flexible about where we go - Topbird, any ideas about where would be better at weekends?

Sorry to hear you've got the lurgy GWRS - take it easy. 


That should help

Please , what type of tree is this

I think that string may be at least part of the problem.


Hope removing it helps.  If not I'd cut off the damaged branch - the rest of the tree will soon bush out and fill the gap.


What is your weather like? (2)

Milder (8.9C) but drizzling here in Norfolk.  However, there's a definite feeling of spring in the air

As if the day couldn't get any better.........

Could it go behind some snowdrops and next to the yellow hellebore?  Best of both worlds


Yesterday was made even better by cutting back a load of perennials and finding the tulips thrusting upwards.


Today was made even better by seeing a peregrine glide across the sky while I was sitting in bed with my morning cuppa ... they'll soon be nesting on the cathedral spire again.


Spring's here

Snowdrop Walk - Anglesey Abbey

What with having had the lurgy I've not got around to doing anything about organising a Snowdrop Walk.


We haven't got long left - is anyone interested in meeting up to see the snowdrops at Anglesey Abbey, Cambridgeshire?

What day of the week suits most people?


Anyone able to car-share etc?


Or is there another venue that people would prefer?
