Oooh, I'd love to grow an ipad - do I need seeds or does it have to be cuttings ;- )

(Sorry, couldn't resist a silly moment)

This isn't good enough - don't they know your chickens are in danger of developing trench foot!

Flood warnings in East Dorset again. Dogs have to paddle through puddles on the field where we walk.

Sycamore tree - why are they monsters?

Amy S, don't ever feel silly. We all make mistakes, in fact we all carry on making them, just different ones the next time! Enjoy your garden and have fun with it.

Sycamore tree - why are they monsters?

My neighbour has Norway Maples - very similar to sycamore. Once I pulled out 72 seedlings in approx a 20 sq. yard section of my garden. So my advice too, Amy, is avoid!

A wise 12-year-old once said to me, 'If you don't say anything, they'll think you don't mind.'

Had never heard of Avaaz before, I have now.

Winter jasmine I find very easy to manage. And a welcome splash of colour in quiet times. Chop off or pull up bits you don't want. It arches over and can root where it touches. Not sure if your soil would be too good for it, mine is growing - has been for over 20 years - in a skimpy bit of soil right against the house wall facing approx South ~East. Perhaps in decent soil it would have taken over the bungalow by now!

Making a cold frame and where to buy a manger.

Tootles & SkyeSteve, have you come across Freecycle / Freegle? They are forums for giving away or asking for 'stuff' that others don't want. This time of year when people are doing DIY projects, you may be lucky and find window frames.
