HELLO FORKERS! October Edition

Posted: 03/10/2016 at 11:19

The Under Gardener has sent me back indoors - despite sunshine I felt shivery outside and he has prescribed another day on the sofa and more aspirin, honey and hot lemon - he says he's an experienced enough Under Gardener not to need supervising when turning the compost - apparently I point out the obvious 

He's right, he's pulled up the squashes and raked over the bed ready to sow with broad beans without any instruction at all 

He says he needs me to be well enough to make tonight's supper - that's my only job today.  Kettle is on and feet are up.  

It's just that I'm getting frustrated - I want to move some plants around ...........

How much notice have you to give for your old work, Wonky?

See original post

 Think she had to give a months notice. She hasn't got any leave to take so she'll have to work all of it.

Put them outside. The light indoors is much less than outside - even by a big window. If you don't believe me use a camera light meter and measure it. I think you'll be surprised. If you're interested in science that will be a good thing to do.

Doesn't look like a Tanacetum to me.

Heather looks like it's dying, not sure what to do!

Whilst I hate to generalise or cast aspersions on anyone - most florists' expertise is in plants that have no roots
