When I click on the thread about acidic chicken manure the page is huge - I've notified the Mods as the most recent post on that thread is spam anyway. Maybe that's caused it?

Boston ivy

There's a tower block of flats in Norwich with Boston Ivy reaching at least to the 10th floor - if that's what you want then yes, go for it - but I wouldn't - if you want to keep it within the bounds of your wall and not have it invade the roofspace and damage the tiles it will need regular trimming from you.

has anyone ignored tomatoe growing advice

November Member - if you're referring to Anna Russian, it will flop and sprawl  as the stems are too frail to support it's own weight - it grows more like a squash so I support it with a tripod-type frame of canes and strings - but yes, it's indeterminate so take out the side shoots.

Christmas of yesteryear

I'm a January baby too Lyn and RB  - I look forward to  the hazel catkins and snowdrops - I regard them all as being there just for me (but I suppose I'll have to share them with you now )

My daughter has suffered with SAD, it was part of the ME she endured for most of her teens and twenties - fortunately her health is much improved, she has a job she loves and everything is much better for her now - but her husband and I still keep an eye on her in the winter - she finds that a regular dose of Selenium ACE really helps

Mike, if you're cold go to bed - take a flask of hot chocolate and the radio with you - it's the easiest way to keep warm - don't sit up late into the night - do you have an electric blanket?

HELLO FORKERS!

  I forgot to say good morning ......... good morning all  ......... hope everyone's hatches remained battened overnight.  Not bad here in the east, a bit of a noisy wind, but nothing like some of you've got I'm sure.  Hope no serious damage has been done

.......  I have a tortoise shell butterfly in my bathroom that is trying to sleep. but the heat of the bath wakes it up and it flaps about in the blinds and i am afraid it might damage itself.  I would normally just put it outside but it is very cold out there and i fear i might just be putting it to its death.

Any ideas anyone. Do i leave it till spring and hope it does not injure itself or put it out now, where it might freeze? 

Only 2 more baths till March for me.Will it be ok?

 

We found one upstairs the other day - OH put it in a quiet corner of the garage (it's cool but doesn't freeze in there as it's joined to the house).  Have you a shed, garage, log store, loft where it would be better off?

what a night

Good morning Pansyface - hope the crash wasn't too awful!  Not too bad here at all, but neighbour's downpipe has detached itself from the guttering and their cats are squealing at each other.
