No luck Verd- we're not getting any. We've been naughty... 

Do you think we dare close this thread since things seem to be working again!!

Morning all. Daughter's results didn't arrive yesterday...talked to postman and he was going to check with his boss back at depot. If they don't appear today she'll have to go and get them in school tomorrpw when thay do the timetable changes if you don't get the grades  you need. Nothing's ever simple is it! She got some chocolate anyway to keep her spirirts up....

Cool cloudy and damp here. Some parts of Northumberland apparently only 3degrees last night!

Have a lovely day Dove.

MrsG the headless UGs are cheaper because you don't have to  feed them....

Hoping it stays dry later as I've got concreting to do.

Have a good day everyone.

Stacey- that was one of my oldest nephew's favourites when he was little!

The other one was - what's blue and fluffy?

Mine's slightly less purple though!  Glad you've had a nice restful day

Perhaps even against a sheltered wall with some fleece round them if it's a really prolonged cold spell?

Verd- how sad do people have to be that they're scamming foodbanks?

Sue-  I think Alan's having a break just now before the return to school next week 

KEF- daughter's results didn't appear- asked the postman and he said someone else nearby had asked him too so he was going to ask his boss. Hope they appear tomorrow!

I'm off all next week Dove - hope it doesn't rain the entire time or I'll be taking the fence down to make a raft!

Are you retiring Dove? You never mentioned it....

I like weeding. I find it hard to sit for long in the garden -always need a project- and there's always a little weed nearby that needs yanking out....

How to make an archway

Fairly sure the first one's laurel but I don't think it'll make any difference - they're not too dissimilar anyway and once you fix them into supports etc they'll grow in together. It'll make a nice feature, just make sure you tie them in well to begin so that they don't spring apart!

The two that spring to mind are lavender and box but as Paula says it depends on aspect etc so if you can give us that info Chris it narrows down the search! A lot of plants can be used as hedging and just cut at a low height but I'm guessing that's not what you mean.
