Chelsea tv coverage.

Never mind the RHS members going in at the crack of dawn Valerie - make the celebs get up before lunchtime and go in then...

I'd agree with Scott - I'd like to see a little more chat with the designers but I also agree with every word Hosta said initially - too much coverage on a minority of gardens and zilch about lots of others. Money talks as Scott rightly says

Morning all - another dreich day here too but I also have to go to work so I don't mind so much!

Think it's coming your way Dove 

Congrats to BL for getting through her day unscathed - I'll catch the pix later 

Quick look round before I go. Have a good day everyone - don't eat too many doughnuts Verd

I watched a sparrow clear all the whitefly very efficiently from a pot of strawberries recently

Good luck with it Hosta - and I'm sure Dove will keep you some leftovers if you go off salad 

You've had a busy day chicky. You'll have muscles like Popeye   The weather on Beechgrove is what we had here today 

As long as  you're appreciated Yvie. It's  tiring entertaining little ones all day - even when you're 27 like me

There's a little one there as well - for good measure Verd


How much water should I be watering Canna?

Posted: 17/05/2015 at 19:19

I would kill for 14 degrees Verd. Actually just for double figures

Mine is the same - although not quite to that extreme. I leave some of the frosted  bits in situ (unless they're really black) until new growth is well  through, as it gives a little protection until the cold spells have completely gone. It'll be fine.

Tea for me MrsG 

Like eating licquorice - never liked drinking it 

Hope they're paying you well Yvie - that's a lot of childminding. 

Can't be bothered having any dinner - might have porridge...

Did anyone watch Chelsea? Same old thing really but will no doubt watch most of it anyway.

hobbies ie arts and crafts........
