Not just the strawberries that need it little-ann!

Do you open the door during the day or have vents? That should provide enough air movement I'd have thought.

Me too Verd. I don't grow many as I don't have the room here but I've had good success in previous years in a conservatory and a porch. This year is the first time I've grown from seed too and they are coming on really well. The extra info here has been a real benefit. Conditions vary throughout the country too- I wouldn't try having any outside in Scotland without protection!

Morning all.

Gilly that's great. Did she not get a cheque...I'm not bothering to try and get to 100 then.

Andy one of my daughter's friends stayed recently and they discussed the age of some actor they liked. Daughter said 'oh he's only a year younger than my Mum' to which friend replied 'Really! I thought your mum was only 40 something!'

Had a smile on my face for a while....but she's never seen me first thing inthe morning..

Dull here again but hopefully will stay dry today when I get home.

This might sound daft but - an entire, formal Italianate garden complete with avenues, vistas, cypresses, statues, fountains and box and yew hedging.

Don't ask for much do I...

Good Evening FORKERS

Gilly- it just feels like the Great Wall at times. Unfortunately it's not just a straight line which  is the problem, and then you get a bit done one day and next day it rains...

Not great for the concreting! Need the pickaxe for the holes too so I can only do a bit at a time. Not as young as I used to be 

Nice pic Ggirl

I was using the term "grass" quite loosely.  Its mostly moss, but at least its green

I can't take credit for the pond Wintersong as it was already there but it was so neglected -and the bank beside it -that within a year or so it would have needed totally taken out and that would have been a monumental task. In the short time i was there it was a case of tidying and renovating more than anything. I'd like to think the new owners will at least have something better to do their own thing with.
