I'm off to scrape the car - have a good day everyone  

Lesley - I never remember to cut them back either - that's why I don't like them - mine always look rubbish! 

lettuce tips?

I find it easier in containers Marc. We get a lot of rain and therefore a lot of slugs here! 

How about trying something else - like thyme  - if you're keen to edge the bed?  

A Valentine meal with who ?

Brilliant fidget. Hope you have a wonderful day...err. night.... 

We're looking forward to the photos - the diving ones I mean....

I'll just go now ...

Can I have Steve McQueen as well as Idris KEF?

Is it lucky though B'man?

I've used Hopes Grove - they've been very good.

You'll need to be quick though - it's coming to the end of the bare root season. A few extra bargains available though!

Jimmy - you're right - we need to bring Verdun up here for a proper winter next year!  

I think ours has been a bit milder than normal here. Quite a few days getting above five degrees, and certainly better in the last couple of months of 2015.  

Snowdrops only just forming in my garden. They'll be nice though.

I think that's the drawback of having a milder winter chicky - if/when it changes, you lose plants that are out at the wrong time.

Morning/afties all. Sharp this morning but we may catch some snow later. What was Verdun saying about spring yesterday.....

Can I take that fire to work with me Frit? 

Trimming heathers after flowering is the key - a bit like lavender. Or get some rabbits and grouse to keep them nibbled 

Hellebore sounds lovely chicky - what colour? A dusky pink I'm guessing...

lettuce tips?

If Hosta had to  shoo the ducks, is that uncivil engineering?....

What about us Verd?  

I'll wait for spring to make it's usual appearance some time in June....
