What's the weather like in your area?

Posted: 20/04/2012 at 01:08

Bit late with my Thursday report...and it was wall to wall sunshine in my part of N.ireland. Beautiful day and coming home at 5pm it was 14c according to the car reading. Must have been more earlier in the day.

Wikipedia says imidacloprid is sold under different brand names one of them being Provado. This is NOT for use on edible crops.

We had a beautiful sunny day here in N.Ireland but the temperature wasn't above 10c the whole day even with little wind. Got loads done.

Have this shrub in my garden and love it.  Last year I went a bit trigger happy with the secateurs and thought I'd gone overboard but its come out the other side and bloomed very well this year  . I'd love to propagate but not sure how to. Google says soft/hardwood cuttings but Idon't know the difference or which would be better. It has just finished flowering.  Any help appreciated.

sycamore seeds

They are persistant aren't they !  I have a couple of raised beds which I covered during the winter to stop weeds and when I removed the covers a few weeks ago there was nothing but sycamore seedlings.  Thankfully they were easily enough removed. I don't have an answer to the OP's question other than to watch out for the seeds in summer when weeding, etc, because they seem to "come down" well before autumn especially after a windy day/night. But this may not be practical if you have a medium/large garden.
