In a month's time I have shall be having some building work done and against one of the walls to be demolished is a small all green cotoneaster. Can I take cuttings from this before it is dug out, please?

Geoff, the message arrived in my email inbox saying 'We have had an idea. Morning Sasha I know you don't post that often ....'

What does this mean?

I know, Brumbull. The poor farmers have had a very rough time. Do they get any form of compensation? I think they should.

That reminds me, Fairygirl. I must buy some sweet peas seeds. What variety are you growing?

Birdbath still frozen here so must get up and out to break it. I have a blackbird that loves its bath on a regular basis and is so funny to watch!

Yes, thankfully no frost today but earth still too cold to plant anything which I am finding very frustrating. Aren't you?

Does this endless cold weather mean that all the veggies we eventually sow will be weeks and weeks later?

Good morning and a pinch and a punch etc! Hopefully the day will cheer up as at the moment still the endless grey sky here!

Hello Everyone, sorry I haven't been in touch. Hope you are all very well despite this grim weather we are having . Still we are better off that some peeps in Cumbria etc so have a lot to be thankful for.

Is anyone managing to do anything in the garden? I did dig a big area of the veg patch a couple of weeks ago but apart from that have kept indoors as much as possible.
