House moving and needing plant advice

Any hardy shrubs or perennials will survive in pots and bags etc for quite a while as long as they don't get dried out or waterlogged. Good luck with your move Rosey - hope it's a dry day!

Morning all. Cloudy here as Lesley says. The forecast last night was totally different from the morning ones so no need to cover the car 

Keep warm Girl - hope you're  a bit better today. Think you're due a bit of rest after all the gardening work you've done this year.

Work soon so a quick look round before I go. But weary last night so just put my feet up after dinner.

take care in the chill - put a simmit on under your jumper Dove

I totally agree Woody. It's a balance - like many things in life. I don't use a lot of weedkillers or other chemicals but I will use them when I feel it's necessary. Good hygiene and husbandry in a garden makes for a good environment for all types of life - wild or otherwise!

As long as the toads are well done they're not too chewy Verd...

Evening all. Few more barrowloads of gravel shifted after work but very dark now and back sore. 

Fidget   Hope it goes quickly. 

Yes KEF - I'm sure Verd enjoyed his's good to share 

Used to love T in the H Dove. Not had it in years.  Leftover sauce from last night's casserole me tonight - with a baked potato or summat. 

I'll have a look and see what you've all been up to while I have a cuppa

Slugs and snails eat them here Sharon and they're very good at munching and hiding

I've done that too trillium and it's very successful - a kind of overground heeling in 

Those big trugs are great - the supermarkets often sell them cheaply - I have two or three which were only £3 and I have a slightly smaller one which I use for deadheading etc which was £2. Builder's buckets from DIY stores are only £1 so they're very useful too for shifting clumps of perennials etc .

Morning all. No frost here but we're getting it tonight - after rain apparently so not so good. Drive carefully everyone - especially if you have fog as well. 

I'll have to give that a miss DD thanks all the same... The spreading's the easy bit if there's no or little prep though. With all your new muscles and fitness, it'll be done in no time  

Off for a quick look round before I go to work. Have a good  day everyone
