pancake day

Posted: 11/02/2016 at 12:31

Flumpy - Verdun is just having a joke - pretending pancake day is next week. 

He's a very naughty elf and will have to have his doughnuts rationed....

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?....
