Morning all. That's a lovely pic of Verdi  Dove...

Man coming soon to fix boiler. Hate to think how much that will be. I'd have been better off getting a new one 

I'll wash all your dishes when I have some hot water...

Off for a look round while I have a cuppa

Bonkers weather

That little 'thingy' is a smiley face which didn't work as I cut and pasted. 

Interesting - something very odd has happened ....not just avatar pix that are 'disappearing', names too....

This is what Nanny gardener posted in March 2013 on the thread 'Overwintering Cannas' :   'So now that spring is here (well it is today) and my over wintered Cannas are showing signs of life i.e. splitting the pot, can I take them out and re pot in new compost? I have never successfully managed to revive Cannas so I am hoping that this will be the year. Any tips great fully received.'   Liz 13 posted recently - October 28th - thereby reviving the thread :

'I plan to move my Cannas that are in large pots into a sheltered spot in the garden, they will be under cover and I will protect the pots with bubble wrap and fleece, my question is, should I cut off the stems if so how short ?'

I replied to her query. Digger posted and Nanny gardener posted again - I believe referring to the difficulty she has getting her Cannas through the winter -  as follows:

'Here we go again '


'Carol Klein covered overwintering of Cannas & Dahlias on GW last Friday. Very helpful advice as always'

Verdun, Matt and myself posted again with further info.

 I don't see a problem with any of the posts.

At my last house we had to do the same art. Had only been in the house a few months.  My partner at the time knew the guy as he'd done work at his last house and he did it for cash so we saved a bit of money. Still three grand though and it took two days to be put in 

Electric shower here too
