New 'Secret Garden' emails

Posted: 27/08/2016 at 17:48

It's pretty simple once you've done it once - I do it with all the 'regular guff' emails that I get, that way I only have to deal with the interesting ones, but I know where the others are if I need them.

If the seeds grew then their age isn't the problem - I've got some cosmos flowering now which came from a packet which said  Sow by 2005.

Sorry, I'm a bit confused   are you trying to keep the rabbits in or out?

And I'm not allowed anywhere near trampolines   ... not since I deconstructed my knee at Ma's 80th birthday party .... well, how was I to know I'd got hyperflexive joints - I thought everyone had knees that bent both ways

Why don't you set up a Secret Garden folder in your Inbox, and set an instruction that all the Secret Garden Emails go straight into it?  Then when you want to find them you'll know where they are.

Or you could set up an instruction that deletes all the previous emails from SG and only keeps the most recent one.  I find that useful.

When to scarify...

Hi Pp - I've not actually booked it yet, but  if you go on their website and go into Tool Hire, there's a section for Garden Equipment - apparently you have to register on their website and then you can choose to pick the equipment up from one of their stores in your area, or you can have it delivered. 

When to scarify...

Our lawn got sadly neglected this year due to dealing with parental demise and other stuff, and now the dry spell has turned it a lovely shade of brown fluffiness due to thatch and moss.

I'm going to investigate hiring an electric scarifier from Homebase within the next fortnight, and I'll then overseed with a good lawn mix.
