I think it depends on the frost - something that just 'singed' the foliage would be ok but I wouldn't want a sharp frost on them.

****** NHS box tickers. I need to vent

Appalling!  You really need to make a complaint to NHS England - how to do it is here http://www.england.nhs.uk/contact-us/complaint/  and c.c. your MP.  

Unless people do this the powers that be will believe the statistics that tell them things are fine!

Good morning all  

We've had a mild night here - the temp didn't drop below 9.4C 

 I wish the rest of the ash leaves would drop, I want to get them all raked up and am trying to avoid having to do it twice ....

Too late, Mrs F has told me under no circumstances am I planting it in our garden. So that's that. Aconitum seeds anyone?

I'll take them off your hands Fishy - secure back garden here - no small children in family (or even extended family) and plenty of other poisonous plants to blame if anyone does become ill (arum maculatum, lily of the valley and foxgloves to name just a few - and then of course there's the rhubarb leaves and the potato fruits?)

Honestly, if you don't want them let me know and I'll PM you my address and something for the postage

Hello again folks   I'm back from my visit to Cambridge Uni Botanic Gardens
It was lovely to see my friend from Cornwall again, lots of nattering was done and the world was put to rights.  Some gentle wandering around the rock gardens, shrubberies and glass houses of the Botanic Gardens was done, the sun shone on us and a good lunch and much coffee was had. A very enjoyable day   We didn't take any photos - the autumn colour was all but over and lots of beds had been cut back and were being worked on.  There was an interesting fruit - Lady someone's Orange ????  I shall have to google ....

My day didn't start so well as the 9am bus didn't arrive, so I had to catch the 9.30 and change to get down to the station, however, that did mean that I could use my bus pass

The train journey to Cambridge is a lovely one with lots to see - particularly lots of rivers and woodlands, and of course the beautiful Ely cathedral. I also saw lots of wildlife, including a buzzard trying to snatch one of the flock of woodpigeons that were feasting on a farmer's oilseed rape.

The journey back took longer than it should have done, as we were held up outside Brandon by a mal-functioning level-crossing gate, so as I arrived back in Norwich about 15 minutes late the bus timetable didn't dovetail with the train - however, never one to let a good opportunity go to waste, I used the additional 45 mins to pop into M&S and buy a new nightie as well as get a coffee at Starbucks which is opposite my bus stop. Nothing if not organised.

Hopefully the Christine W programme has recorded itself for me - I'll be interested to see her view of East Anglia

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Lyn ((hugs)) have been thinking of you and yours and hoping you're all as ok as can be.

Not gardening but a computer question

Posted: 11/11/2014 at 08:49

When I bought my new laptop a few weeks ago it came with Windows 8.1, but the chap at the shop set it up so that it looks more like the Windows edition I was used to and it's been fine.
