Over wintering a Water Lily

On a slight tangent - agree with philippa's advice by the way- it's a bit of a myth about koi being valuable. They might be expensive to buy, but their value is lower than assumed afterwards. Didn't stop thieves nicking ours at the last house, dropping the biggest one (a whopper) en route, which the foxes then had a go at  

Haha - hoho!

They have one at Levens Hall. We had a sort of semi one in my ex's garden. The cows regularly pushed their way through the old wire fence, but there was a decent enough slope and drop that could have been made into a proper ha ha. Would have been nice as there was a lovely view. He had a stretch of beech hedge about twenty feet in front of the fence and that could have been removed.

Morning all -interesting spam today! 

Panda - sorry you're 'visiting' under sad circumstances. Hope you're ok x

We all love you doc - so try and stay positive and keep in touch. Love to both of you in this lousy situation. x

Has anyone seen Bushman? He's not been on recently, so hope he's not been unwell again. perhaps he's hibernating 

Off for a quick look round before work. Stay warm and cosy everyone 

Haha - hoho!

'You'll have had your tea then' - it's a very Edinburgh phrase - I know nothing about that....

I used to love ISIHAC many years ago. Not the same without Humph though

Good to hear DD 

Buttons are often the tricky bit Gertie - cushions are much easier

As long as the memories are good hollie - that's what matters  There was still a lot of snow on most of the hills well into May and June this year due to the long winter. Nevis is never without snow somewhere and they reckon the top is only clear of cloud for about 60 days of the year. I hope to do it again via the arete which includes another Munro. It's a spectacular walk - a famous one for walkers - and a very long day, so I'll need good weather  

It can be quite disappointing when you walk in cloud and clag, but when it suddenly clears - it takes your breath away. No matter how often it happens - it's always a thrill 

Think you might be right about Callander David. Not that I'm old enough to remember Dr Finlay....

Overwintering Pelargoniums

If it was me, I'd cut them back. Any excess moisture in the greenhouse can cause them to get damp and that's when you get problems. Make sure there's good ventilation and keep them quite dry Patricia.
