Did you fly Hostafan1? and what was the flight plan if you did?

Did you land at the Azores or Madeira, perhaps other?

GWRS, good on you. Button sewing always comes in handy.........

After 15 years with my OH , I am pleased to announce I have finally been shown what to do with a button.
Apparently no sewing is needed, just a few licks and a few light Taps and then I get a free meal!

OH sister showed me how to do it. I would love to give all the in's and outs but it's a secret apparently.

I thought they were sisters and shared everything? Apparently one half does!


PS. Too much???

If you look at the link, they are not actually advertised as a prank. They are grown as a solution to a problem many gardeners come across. They are grown and bought by gardeners (just like we buy and use Nematodes for slug and other pest control) 

No mention of pranking. (they even provide food)

PS. the English use of the word pranking is old and means: To decorate or dress ostentatiously or gaudily. 

To prank has a different meaning.

They would be great in the green house though jo47. Not that I would pay that much for ladybird (or anything) and I would prefer the larvae rather than the adult but company's do sell them and they are bought!!! 

Wonders will never cease.

"HEDGE Retains copper foliage throughout the winter. Trim July or August. For hedges 3ft (90cm) upwards. Plant 9-18ins (23-45cm) apart or for a denser or stock-proof hedge plant in a staggered double row with 15ins (38cm) between rows and 18ins (45cm) between plants. "

I know of no good reason why not to. They normally get planted Nov - Feb.

 Some people make the mistake of just giving their roses manure but they need extra feeding as well. Manure, garden compost and leaf mould will improve the structure of the soil and the rose will thank you for that.
