I fleeced the banana in the greenhouse. That's not a euphemism either.

Plants you don't like...are there any?

I hate that black lily grass, Ophiopogon, It just looks dead to me.

How can I remove this clump?

You will probably need a pickaxe or rootbreaker.

Quick question for the composting experts

I think the coir used in hanging basket liners may have been treated with something. If it has not rotted, chop it up a bit, wet it and throw it back in again.

I planted a huge bag of mixed daffs from Lidl. They have an extended season that way. If you only have one variety, the display will be over sooner

Hubby is feeling better this morning. Courtesy car has come. Same size car but smaller engine, manual gearbox, no safety pack, no winter pack. No idea how long it will take to put a new rear on the old one.

Fridge full, shopping done, wine at 4c outside at the moment.

Have a good day folks.

Plant I. D please

Looks like a tree peony.  New leaves will come from the terminal buds in Spring. I find the leaves go brown but hang on for most of the winter, When they go crinkly, I carefully take them off.

I have the same problem with cooked sausages in the fridge. How that mouse manages to open the fridge door, I'll never know. I'm not  buying most of the food for the party until tomorrow morning. Easier to keep him off it then. He can go and prep an area for fireworks while I cook the pork for hot pork baps with stuffing and bramley apple sauce.  All the drinks except red wine are outside cooling down. Anyone know what temp it will be tomorrow? When I was 40 , it snowed. Most of the family didn't turn up. We chilled the champagne by lying it in the snow. Shame there were only five of us to drink six bottles of the vintage stuff.
