Peruvian scented daffodils

Grow in large pots of well drained gritty soil and place in the sunniest position. Bring inside and keep dry for winter.

Did you go to the nutmeg processing place, punkdoc?

I thought it smelt like Sunday mornings. Thats because every Sunday morning, my mum would make egg custard, liberally sprinkled with Nutmeg.  I'm not keen on nutmeg on top of a Pina Colada though..

I would tip out the compost bins with the Jack Russell on standby. Working dogs love a bit of exercise.

How to improve the Trowel?

Posted: 27/01/2016 at 08:43

I want one that doesn't bend where it is attached to the handle. Also a comfy non slip handle. Also a homing device so it doesnt get lost. Last year was a particularly bad year for trowels. One lost, one bent, one snapped.

Got drunk at a live show. As she said, she doesnt normally drink after cancer treatment, she hadnt slept for 24hours, and had a bit of a meltdown when her dogs when missing. One rule for  Jonathan Ross and Russel Brand, another for Those with health problems like Bill Oddie.

If you take a cutting of about 15cm, and just stand it in water, it will root. You can try both the water method and the soil method, you should be able to get loads of cuttings off of that plant. The original plant will shoot again, just add a spoonful of phostrogen or baby bio to the water when you water it.
