No Heather! We're just bonkers not conkers!

It's a great time to contemplate and plan for the next growing season. Know what you mean about the dark nut. This morning was very dark here- though I'd got up an hour too early!

Hi punkdoc- what plants haven't done so well for you? We're competing to see who's ordered/bought the most bulbs. Think GGirl and Bob are in the lead - 500/600 + 

Get well soon Dove. If I had some cake I'd send it. It's the best thing for ....well, everything really 

Talkback: Garden spiders

I keep spotting them at night running across the floor. Don't bother me at all. Just pick them up and put them outside. Oldest daughter had one in her bedroom when she was small and used to have a little chat each day with it. For her 2nd birthday she asked if she could have a tarantula!

That's the trouble with encouraging them to talk.....

I've heard that reading the Daily Mail can cause all sorts of problems.....

in particular - it makes you bonkers 

My daughter's at Strathclyde- perhaps I should get her to wear a mask when she's in the house....just to be on the safe side.

Best time of the day Panda!

Not much of it here today though - back to damp and dull after the last 4 lovely days

Work now so better go and organise myself. Have a great day all 

Decking lighting spacing

Posted: 02/10/2013 at 08:11

Are they going on the surface of the deck Grant and along just one length? Your deck sounds about the same dimensions as a previous one I had - almost exactly in fact. I think they may be too far apart to be honest but if you have other lighting and just want them as an  extra it may be fine. I'd say they should be about 30 or 40 cm apart if they're low voltage as they won't be too bright.

Sounds glorious Dove. These early morning 'glows' are stunning. When I did a lot of hillwalking we were often up very early to drive to hills and there's something quite special about that time in the morning. 

I'm not Paxman but I've got a few questions pretty please...

Didn't remember the dog I'm afraid -   that's because I'm too young of course...

I never had a greenhouse and always kept new strawb runners outside- albeit against a sheltered wall here in the windy west of Scotland!

Pieris- re the colour - think that may be a myth!

 Grass struggles if it's cut very short so it gives the weeds a chance to get their feet in the door and take over. Give it a chance early on by cutting it a little higher and feeding it. When the weather warms up you can cut it shorter . 

Would agree with fidget on the other queries.

Morning all. Red sky at night shepherd's delight etc Dove - apricot you say - hmm. Is there a fire somewhere?

Reading last night's posts- I saw a daffodil called 'Verdin' when I ordered bulbs....pretty close?  After seeing Tina's post yesterday about 'BlackNegligee' I'm not sure we could let him get hold of a camera
