Plant markers

Look good pansyface  

Would you use them spiky end up or put that end in the ground - or would it depend on what you wanted to keep away from the plants as well?

Susan - he's been around so long I thought he must be about 120 by now!  

I'll record that as I might not be around. Thanks for letting us know

Fidget - no time for Aurora watching - been busy replying to all the lovely people here who want to sponsor me! 

Seriously - no chance here tonight with all the rain and cloud 

I believe there's been  quite a few sightings up here this year though. The west coast but further south seems to get views - Dumfries and Galloway area is supposed to be a good vantage point if it's clear.

How to make leafmould

Posted: 24/09/2015 at 20:07

I think the black bags are quicker. I had mesh bins in a previous garden and, as the trees got bigger and the quantity of leaves greater, I had to use bags. The bags were more or less rotted within a year, while the bins weren't. Mainly sycamore and lime trees in that garden.

Keeping them damp helps the process, and if you can shred them, it makes the process quicker too.

Thought I'd put a pic of the form on here - it does ask for address, postcode etc and there's a box for gift aid so let me know if you're a taxpayer and I'll tick it  

If anyone doesn't want to disclose their own details, just PM me and I'll find a way round it - I'll add the donation under my own name or something

 and if anyone has any other thoughts - just say!

Hosta - there's a gift aid box to tick on the sponsorship form so I can tick for anyone who requires it!  

I might mention the possum wool to someone I work with - she's always complaining about cold feet. She knits, so perhaps she can start a business making socks 

I'm a bit concerned about all these scantily clad people in their gardens...couldn't have managed without a raincoat and wellies here this afternoon. 

Clothes underneath too of course... 

Children in Need Sponsored Walk

As the title suggests, I'm joining the Countryfile Sponsored Ramble for Children in Need on the weekend of Oct 11th/12th October, and would be delighted if anyone would care to sponsor me.

My intended route is at The Pentland Hills south of Edinburgh and consists of 6 summits (all below 2,000 feet) returning via the Loganlee and Glencorse reservoirs, forming a route of around 12/13 miles in total. The hills are Turnhouse, Carnethy, Scald Law, South Black Hill and East and West Kip.

Sorry I don't have any pix of the route   but you can google if you're interested in seeing it. 

Please PM if you wish to sponsor me and I'll add your name to the form. 

Thanking you enormously in advance
