Just to let you know Wilkinsons currently have Fish, Blood & Bone meal at £4.00 for 3.3kg - that's 33% extra free according to the packet.

Music in the Garden

Posted: 24/02/2014 at 08:46

 Oh dear, I know he's local to us but we're not James B fans here I'm afraid .... I do have a very soft spot for Keane as I used to dandle one of them on my knee not so very long ago (well it doesn't seem like very long ago )

Trying to think of which piece of music I want to remind you all of - there are so many that mean a lot - music's always been a huge part of my life.  I've sung in choirs and worked in music venues and son used to be a sound engineer/roadie.

I shall continue to ponder ...............

sweet pea supports

For traditional hazel you could try here http://www.wassledine.co.uk/hazel.html but as they say, P&P could be expensive.

Or search for Willow pea sticks on Amazon, not as 'rustic' as hazel twigs, but not bamboo at least.

Or you could try googling woodland management companies who may be coppicing hazel stands - but again, unless you're local to where they're working and can pick stuff up the transport will be expensive.

That'll get you hooked 

Rose and clematis combination

Posted: 24/02/2014 at 07:03

Have a look at the Clematis Alpinas - they'll be flowering before most roses, they're not so rampant that they'll swamp things and don't need pruning.  I think they'd do the job well 

Slightly off topic but preserving fruit

If anyone wants the details of a Foody Forum with a 'Cellar' section where all sorts of alcofrolics are discussed and friendly help given - including the making of wines and beers - just let me know - I can guarantee they're a friendly bunch - you may even meet one or two people you already know on there   Definitely not up our own btms 

There's not a lot of winemaking being discussed on there at the moment as it's not the time of year, but you'd be very welcome indeed 

I would normally put the site on here as it's a public forum, but given recent events, just send me a PM and I'll give you a link.
