Music in the Garden

Doc - will keep fingers crossed for you!!!  How fantastic.  

My son used to work as a sound engineer/roadie so has 'done' Glasto several times - and been paid for it!!! But it was jolly hard work and hardly any sleep - almost as soon as the late performances had finished it was nearly time to start setting up for the next day!  Still an experience to remember.

And although he was there in some bad weather, he always says that the mud wasn't that bad - the press made the most of it as usual - muddy girls sell newspapers - apparently

Have you kept a record of the costs?  The lights and power involved, and heating as well as compost etc - I'd be really interested in how much it actually costs to produce a tomato

Hope Rosemummy and little one had a decent night's sleep 

Pond improvements

Posted: 07/04/2014 at 08:15

I've used bags of Scottish pebbles and large graded pea shingle for my pond - the GC also had some larger stones 3 for a tenner, so I had those too - I'd like one more big stone so shall keep visiting garden centres until I find the right one

I think this has been mentioned before and we were told that it wasn't possible for some reason - I might be mistaken.

However, it would be good to have a diary of upcoming events on the website - I have looked and can't see one.  

Found a tree I would love to ID ....please help!
