My daughter gets Tortoiseshells hibernating in their Victorian apartment - she relocates those she finds into the old brick garden shed which is dry and just about frost free. 

We move ours into the garage.

Hello Pentillie   Have you been hibernating?   Hope you've not suffered too much in that weather you've been having down there!

 

We always use Recycled Beer & Cider on our compost heaps, as recommended by Bob Flowerdew - OH is always happy to help

Snowdrop Walk - East Anglia

Posted: 09/01/2014 at 09:04

Some time ago we discussed the idea of meeting up occasionally to visit a garden .... is anyone interested in meeting up to do a Snowdrop Walk in East Anglia late Jan/early Feb?

 I was thinking of Anglesey Abbey as it's fairly accessible and we'll be able to have tea and cake http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/anglesey-abbey/things-to-see-and-do/, but some of you may have other ideas?

Once we decide on date and venue etc, I suggest that anyone wishing to discuss more detailed personal arrangements should use the Private Message facility or swap email addresses.

indoor tomatoes: pots v growbags

Posted: 09/01/2014 at 08:30

Definitely pots and good quality compost - I would use John Innes No 2.  

However, I'm concerned that the situation you describe will not provide high enough light levels for tomatoes. 

Which Daphne?

Kevock http://www.kevockgarden.co.uk/plantlist/p13sep_daphne_mezereum_alba.htm have lots of Daphnes and their prices are quite reasonable I think - don't know what the postage and packing is tho'.

Good morning all   Got my walk in just before the heavens opened - Mr Reynard was about - I could smell where he'd been, and just as I got home I heard a fox's bark.  It's that's time of year when they're into making 'friends' with each other 

Forecast says it may be brighter later - that would be good, I noticed yesterday that the violas are badly in need of a dead-heading session.

Tough shrub for shady, windy spot

I know a Mahonia japonica which revels in just such a spot - it looks glorious at the moment and the scent is wonderful.
