Clarington, i have the same problem, except his tipple is red wine!!!! Love the program, just dont like the time it comes on as I have to rush home from work and get dogs fed and walked by 7. Glad to see the stumperies, I had a go myself with a few gnarled pieces of wood and a few ferns in my wooded area, its very effective.

I have had great success with Wilco seeds, had a few good bulbs from Poundland

though not quite as reliable, still for a quid what do you expect!!!

I grew mine from seed and used tall yogurt pots to grow them in. When they reached about 8" I transplanted them. Seemed to work well. Good luck.


New to pickling and making chutney and would welcome some advice

I make mini hampers for Christmas pressies with selection of jams and chutneys.

just get a shallow basket and line with straw, place jars on top and wrap with clear cellophane and decorate with ribbon etc. makes a great gift.

Made a batch of rosehip syrup too this year, absolutely delicious on yogurt or ice cream so will be giving these away too.

Buried treasure

We live in a Regency house in Cheltenham, It used to have a 2 acre pleasure garden, kitchen gardens, piggery, stables etc .  Parts still remain, but sadly most of it is built on now. the only stuff I've dug up is a cinder path, the remains of an out house and lots of ginger bottles and broken crockery.

Whoever has my garden when I leave will be warned that there are 2 dogs and a cat buried under the lawn, although we have 2 dogs now, so may well be 4 dogs by then!!!

Oh dear, sorry to hear that Mark. we have grey skies here in Gloucestershire, but its supposed to be sunny tomorrow. Sadly, I cant do much gardening, or anything else this weekend. I put my pelvis out pulling up a rogue Mahonia plant and my "back lady"has banned me doing any thing heavy this week! Cant even ride the horse.Looks like I will be sorting out seeds and other fiddly jobs instead.

Have a good one
