Beech hedge

Posted: 23/10/2013 at 13:31

Flowersforbees- the hedging companies supply bare root hedge from November through to March so you should be fine ordering it just now. I've got some coming this year from Hopes Grove nursery - ordered online. Used them before and they were very good.

pd- how could you think such a thing...

It was very pretty but I'm a good girl! There's another beauty near me which has been planted near a front door which is a shame. It's huge and is a stunning colour just now. 

David- Lakes are lovely at this time of year. Used to holiday there often in early autum. Hope the weather is kind to you. 


That new roundup gel

You'll have to grit your teeth and dig it out Valerie 

Don't think anything will work on it apart from brute force. If it's the type that runs and it likes where it's growing you're always going to struggle with it. At my last house the previous owners had planted one in a strange little group of plants next to the field which backed onto us. It wasn't an issue because we just mowed round it to keep it under control.

Morning all. Chucking it down here but if we had any storms last night I didn't hear them thankfully . Still very mild.

work for me too 

Doubt if I'll get anything else done outside but might get some bulbs potted inside if nothing else takes me away from home.

Have a good day all.

PS Glad the tart showed up archie...if you know what I mean..ooh err matron

Beautiful pic of the Acer David. They grow well up here as long as they're sheltered. Passed a lovely one yesterday  - quite small but had a stunning soft orangey glow. Will have to go out and look for it again!

Sky plussed it Dove 

It wasn't me Archie- honest. Verdun's suddenly gone quiet. I'm putting two and two together here KEF....

I'll have the lemon and passionfruit please! 

Very kind of you to share fidget 

Disappeared for me too Dove. No storm here though thankfully.

lily- that's what passes for humour in Verdun's strange little Cornish world....

we just try and keep him happy by throwing him the odd bun or two. 

(he meant 'resent'!)

KEF- steady on...buffing feet sounds a bit rude.  I used to use the electric sander on mine when I did a lot of walking. Far better than those fancy things from the chemist!

Fidget- what's in the Godfather truffle?  Is it Marlon Brandy..... 

Serious! Really

My oldest daughter is obsessed with Marvel superheroes..

Reggie Perrin...brilliant.....I didn't get where I am today...

Kojak. Splendid!

I bet Verdun remembers writing with chalk on a slate at school 

Beware of companies offering vouchers and cash back.

I'm very cynical about all companies nowadays which saddens me. I think so many of them rely on people simply not checking receipts /statements etc and they get away with murder. They just hope you'll not bother, or they fob you off  in the hope that you'll get fed up. 

Glad you got a good result Tina
