I doubt he'll see this Iain. Perhaps you should contact him directly with your concerns about his style. Personally, I love his style of presenting - he's calm and considerate and has a lovely way with other people. Unlike many I can think of.

I'd never be finished writing letters if I contacted all the ones that annoyed me!

Got it Dove - thanks for that info. I've replied  

Best go for the fish slipper or I'll not want anything to eat at all! 

Glad you liked the pix - I'll stick a couple on the camera thread at some point.

As summit views go - it ain't too shabby

 The summit cairn's a bit disappointing though -  and no spare rocks to add to it..


Vine weevil grubs

I'd tip all the compost from them out onto paving, or a plastic sheet, and let the birds go through it - they'll snaffle them up 

Then do what NGL and fidget suggest. You can repot anything that requires it in fresh compost, and dry off tubers etc. 

Anyone else got blooming daffodils?!

Good excuse to buy a few more sale items Charlotte

Can you send some casserole over here T'bird - that would do me nicely 

Had a fab day on the hills - let's just say it was 'Alpine'.   Utterly beautiful. Will post a couple of pix later when I get the camera organised. Sunshine and blue skies, so you didn't really notice the sub zero temps...Hosta would have hated it 

Glad you're keeping your spirits up RB 

Wasn't Adele terrific?

I'm off for a quick look round and a catch up with my cuppa, before a shower and then a fish supper, or 'fish slipper' as youngest fairylet used to call it  

To late to plant crocus bulbs?

Almost anything's better than just leaving them to dry out. Trying to get them in your lawn might not be feasible as you'll be compacting the (probably wet) ground getting them in. Pots are the best solution as fidget says. You can sort them out and get them in your lawn next year when conditions are more suitable  

Planting a screen

Posted: 22/11/2015 at 08:09

I think it would make an excellent screen. Tough as old boots and the berries are terrific, and if it's in a position where you see it form the house, you'll get great entertainment from the birds in winter 

Salty winds would be a problem for many plants - in a coastal situation you need a sacrificial stretch of planting on boundaries to protect the stuff you want to keep.

Morning all - not quite so cold here today but is expected to be around minus 8 or 10 on the hill, so I can't lend you my fleecy buff and headband Dove - sorry  

I'll have to get a jog on as well to keep warm DD 

Hope everyone who's under the weather is a bit better today  and things are brighter for doc and RB's son. Seems to be a bit drier in most places which always helps. 

Off for a quick look round before I head out so wrap up warm and have a nice day everyone. I'll catch up with you all later
