If it stings its a nettle. You may have some foxgloves mixed up with it. Have you a photo?

Disappointed with new shed.. how far to take it.

Posted: 16/09/2014 at 17:38

I had a stair hall and landing carpet laid once. When it was down there was a line across . The carpet layer said it would hoover out. It didn't. A man from the shop came out, and offered me £50 for the fault or relay with new carpet. I had it relaid with new carpet. £50 would not have covered the annoyance at looking at the fault.

If you paint the shed yourself, will it niggle you ?

I think I would ask for a new shed to the correct standard size and specification.

HELLO FORKERS!

Hope you are feeling better, Dove.

I cant go Charlie Dimmock, for the same reason I don't run. Grave danger of knocking myself out.

I've taken cuttings off Amistad and a couple of other salvias, and my argyranthemum paris daisy.  I've also emailed Hayloft about the phlox plants ordered in April, delivered in July , and  7 out of 12 still not come up.  This was a surprise, I was expecting 2 to resurrect from the dead looking roots that were sent. I also emailed Parkers to see where my bulbs were, I want to get them in before I go away. Parkers replied 30 mins later, will be sent this week. Hayloft , only an automated reply....

OH has gone to get his holiday jabs. My arms ached for three days after, I gather thats a good sign, it shows an immune response.  Now I've only got to find the suntan lotion that I bought in early August and someone has tidied into a safe place....

Curry for tea. These onions are really strong this year, I can't get the smell off my hands.

Have a good evening folks.

Plum tree - possible bacterial canker...

I had an apricot which had a similar cracking, and weeping. One half of the tree died, and we cut it out. The rest looked sick for a long time. We eventually cut the lot down this year after a lot of prevaricating. I suspect yours will never be right. I would take it out now.

Floppy poppies

If its an oriental poppy, now is the ideal time to take root cuttings.....or it may split easily into "irishmans cuttings" a bit of shoot with a bit of root already attached.
