Salad leaves

Posted: 15/11/2016 at 20:21

I have trays of rocket and salad leaves in the greenhouse. There are some mixes that are better for winter, and others for summer. They are slow growing at this time of year, but the odd sunny day boosts them along a bit.

Differentiating between Alliums and Tulips

Still lots of shredding for me. I did get dragged out of bed at some unearthly hour to see a bright moon. Didn't look much different to me, but then I didn't have my glasses on.

Dahlia's in pots?

Yes, it is also easier to overwinter, you just stop watering and put them somewhere frost free to dry off. You will need big pots.

There's me thinking it was my 'puter. I rebooted it.

Just had an email to say the parcel I have been waiting in for has been left by the gate, and a card through the door. Now we just need to find out whose gate and door!

Undergardener got a bit over enthusiatic with the pergola plants. Oh well, it will grow back I suppose. The shredding pile is about the size of a shed.

Blatant advertising

Posted: 13/11/2016 at 22:16

I think most people recommend someone from time to time. This is OK so long as you are not actually connected with the business and advertising on their behalf. 

What we are referring to are the blatant spam adverts for kitchens and furniture on a gardening site.

Trouble is that Nature is full of sex and violence.  Not showing it wouldn't mean that it doesn't happen.  I've seen some pretty amazing things in the wild. Nature is all around us, red in tooth and claw.and finding a beheaded hedgehog in the back garden means you don't have to go far to see Nature at work. You just have to sit patiently and watch.

 I loved the bears having a back scratch.
