HELLO FORKERS! October Edition

Posted: 21/10/2016 at 15:21

Dad used to have to get steps to lift the hanging baskets down. Now his grandson does it for mum. No  steps needed, he's 6 ft 9 inch in his bare feet.

Please help identify my plants.

I think morning glory are likely to be got at by the frost unless you have a heated conservatory.

Wash them out with a bit of vinegar in the final rinse, and hose them down. Smell goes after a few days, or leave them outside in the rain.

We have top speed virgin cable, but at the mo, it seems to be on a go slow.  Hubby did a check, and it says five computers, someone streaming video, and two kindles.  We only have one kindle in the house. We've changed the password twice. Next door neighbour did work with Alan Turing at Bletchley in Ww2, but at 98, I don't think it's him hacking us, probably some seven year old.

Excellent idea. Fishmongers have fish delivered in deep polystyrene boxes, with handy drainage holes. I find them useful for growing  salad leaves in a cold greenhouse, but they would be excellent for plunging pots in.

OMG , punkdoc.

I know you wanted to get away from the neighbour , but... OMG.

I'm glad I didn't know where you were, your wife must have been terrified.

 it must make Sheffield A & E on a Saturday night before Christmas look like a picnic in the park.

 All I can say is, if you can do that , you can do anything.

Enjoy the bottle of wine.

 I think you deserve a fat rascal or two.

If they have roots, then unheated is the best way. Do not allow the roots to freeze , but  they do not need heat.

I had some  not up to scratch bulbs, about 8 in 200. I emailed them and had a replacement within a week.  Try emailing customer services, quoting your order number.

Potato seed from all over Europe.

Scotch certified seed is best.

Try some adult bonjela for the soreness.  Lack of Vit B12 can cause sores at the corner of the mouth.
