Thank you so much for the invite. I will bring some haggis canapes plus some uisge beatha (water of life). And some turnip crisps.

Is there a dress code? What about presents?

Just been to collect my cat's ashes from the vet. Not as bad as I thought it would be. Just need to choose a nice spot in the garden now to bury them. Think I will need to take up a plug in the lawn as I concreted under the seat in the garden 2 years ago when I buried the ashes of the last cat that I lost. They came in a lovely little urn with his name engraved and a lovely card. Life goes on doesn't it?

My cat was put to sleep today. I am heart-broken and can't stop crying. I live on my own and he was my family. Hugs to anyone else going through difficult times.

planting bulbs in tubs

Posted: 19/09/2015 at 16:34
I only use bulb fibre for pots of bulbs in the house as it has been specially mixed (or used to be) with extra charcoal so as not to go sour in pots with no drainage. For all outdoor bulbs in pots I just use multi-compost.

Are you in the UK granma?

Replacing planting with lawn

Posted: 18/09/2015 at 19:50
Dig out the plants and dig over the beds removing any stray roots. Rake the beds level. Tread the beds down with your feet, topping up with some topsoil if necessary. Rake them over again, tread them again, topup again, rake them again. You want them to be just proud of the grass and no more. Sow your grass seed and keep well watered if necessary.
