BL - I love oysters .............. but they really don't love me - in fact they're waging a vendetta against me - Christmas before last was 'wiped out' due to oyster poisoning and it wasn't the first time they'd had a go at me so sadly,Never Again!!!

I've got a check up on the 24th, but I had a filling come out the other day - I was hoping they could do that at the same time but apparently they can't - filling will be done this Thursday - thank goodness for my Bus Pass

Simon, cut the buddleias down to knee height about now and give them a sprinkling of Fish Blood and Bone and you'll be well rewarded.

How close to the conservatory is the one you're worried about?  

In 50+ years of gardening I've never met a garden buddleia whose roots damaged a building.  

The only ones I know that have done that are the ones that grow from seeds blown in the wind which take root in cracks in mortar and on rooftops.

Mike, unless Zoomer is keeping chickens on the plot, Reynard may turn out to be an ally in the war on rabbits

Chicky, maybe you should change your name to Ducky - then you'll be fine?

Lily - we'll have a virtual Snowdrop Walk on Wednesday - I know all about Snowdrop Walks now - we'll smell the sarcococca and daphne odora and exclaim over the iris reticulata and hellebores; we'll try to identify all 20+ different types of snowdrops and we'll eat cake - that's the way to do it!!!!!!!!!!!!
