Picture Postcard Request

Posted: 05/04/2016 at 18:43

I've got a few postcards from places I've been to around the UK - I'll send you two or three.  PM me your address and I'll pop them in the post. 

It'll be an excuse to go to our new post office and get stamps ... the old one closed and the new one has opened ... in the village pub .......... I wonder if OH will volunteer to go for me

Lyn, change back to basic and save it, then change to advanced again and save - that sometimes works for me

Pdoc - help yourself to coffee and croissants - if those others have left any

SW - take care out there !!!

Monterey Cyprus goldcrest can grow up to 40ft tall (12m).  Not what you need

I'm sure Verdun can suggest a reliable online supplier or two who will have the plants you need

 and plenty of croissants too ......

If you listen to the Archers ....

Very good point SW and Sparkles - power, control and abuse is a problem across the spectrum of human relationships - very sad.

There is information here about sources of support men may find helpful


In the Archers scenario - I'm wondering whether Rob will claim to have been an ongoing victim of abuse even before Helen lashed out ... after all, when he hit her he claimed it was in 'self defence'.

Love a bargain

Absolutely - that's the best sort of bargain

New gardener -flowering bulbs questions..

Posted: 05/04/2016 at 07:32

They'll be fine planted just now - the foliage will look attractive over the summer - dig some organic matter into the soil and give them a mulch with the same after planting.  They'll be very happy. 

You could also consider some Lamium - silver leaves with pink or purplish flowers in the summer - they're quite happy in semi-shade and they look after themselves and come back year after year, spreading to form a carpet of silver and green leaves. 

In the autumn you could plant some Chionodoxa or Puschkinia bulbs.  Both of these have pretty blue flowers in the early spring and will come back year after year.  They'll be happy growing among the hellebores and lamiums and don't need any looking after
