What's the weather like in your area?

About 5c today & sun shining all day; had a lovely walk but had to keep to a hard surface - the grassy areas are somewhat "soft"

Just want to say thanks folks for advice & laughs, and to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas & a Happy & Healthy New Year.

Don't get on here as much as I'd like, but do read a lot.....  I'm sure that just looking at the Fairy family's "fancies" have made me put on 3 lb!



Merry Christmas

Can't remember the exact wording, but it is said that the cold weather only starts after the winter solstice  & I read somewhere that the coldest day of the year is often 19th January.

Still got to wait until early Feb for the back garden to see a glimpse of the sun.


Badly explained help!

Bet it isn't up here, pal!!

I'm very pleased that the RHS have introduced a new hardiness guide - will the plant labelling companies use it??   3 guesses - 1 will do!

Advice on small plant for our bathroom please?

Maidenhair ferns and spider plants often do well with their pots grouped together - maybe they'd both be happy in the bathroom - perhaps with a peace lily as well 

Advice on small plant for our bathroom please?

Thank you - now I know why our maidenhair fern has a lot of crinkly leaves!  It's in a (north-facing) sun lounge & drinks huge amounts of water, but for the last few weeks has been particularly sad looking. Perhaps a water spray would help?

I keep a spider plant in the bathroom but it's not very steamy there; it was either put it there or in the bin as I'm not really bothered about them but wouldn't bin a live plant!

Rain washed away the snow rapidly & since then it's been quite cold. About 1c tonight, somehow I think that it'll go lower during the night!

Just a Canadian laugh.

Excellent - but wasn't it a good costume and he walked just like a bear?

Woke up to over 2" of snow this morning, was rather cold but lovely in the sun. (I wore my wooly Christmas pudding design hat to the shops). It's been slowly melting all day & is now almost all gone but pouring down with rain.
