Dreaded thrips

Get this problem quite regularly. I use Nematodes and garlic sprays and home made sticky strips. Day glow yellow/blue and hot pink cards work the best.

Ideas for my manky lawn and old car port

Posted: Today at 10:59

I would convert the car port into a cold greenhouse. All the hard work has already been done for you.

That lawn just needs a bit of TLC. Do a search for Lawn Care using the search facility at the top of the page. There are some videos to watch on there. I do not think you will need to re-turf, But a bit of reseeding might be needed. 

Welcome by the way.

Self watering Planter

Posted: Today at 09:27

All self watering planters are roughly the same. (I find them a waste of time to be honest) 

You only fill the pot up to the bottom level of the inner container. That would be the bottom level of the compost. Anymore would flood the pot.


 It should also have holes in the side of the pot to drain off any excess water (it might be recessed into the bottom of the pot.)

Just for info.


"When can I apply Nemasys Vine Weevil Killer?

Nemasys Vine Weevil Killer should be applied when the soil temperature is above 5oC (41oF) and the vine weevil larvae are present. Outdoors this is usually March to November, undercover vine weevil can be controlled year round. Nemasys Vine Weevil Killer kills vine weevil larvae and not the adult beetles."

We call them upper decker flopper stoppers.4thPanda.

I often wonder why  "bra" is singular and "panties" is plural?

My OH text me earlier while I was out shopping:
'Pick something up for the little ones while you're out love x'
I got her a bra.

I did The Great North run with a girl called Cath who did not wear a sports bra. Her lack of support got me through.
