e-mail warning

Posted: 06/02/2016 at 14:40


I have an Virgin email address, need it for Virgin account, well Virgin took it in house end of last year from some other lot!

As soon as it changed I immediately started getting 6 to 10 evil spoofs every day, none of which I have opened, they are down to 3 or 4 a week now!

( your paypal account is suspended, your bank account is closed, tax refund enclosed, you have won 100 million euros, plus lots more)

I would bet that 100 million euros that it is administrated from India!

When I phoned, you cannot e-mail them, the liars denied any knowledge of any problems with their e-mail account!

CS is supposed to raise the PH of acidic soils, but why mix it with another fertilizer?

Apply them separately would be my suggestion!

Put me down for a couple of blue lupins and i'll have a blue bougainvillea at the same time!

Funny my blue lupins are never this blue!



Slug resistant hostas

I had Bress Blue hosta it was not blue and not snail resistant,I dumped it as it was not very pretty


Snails are a bigger problem than slugs with me, one season they seem to attack one or two varieties then the next they don't really bother with any!

Lobelia cardinallis is more of a favourite with them,it is usually decimated, so I use it as a sacrificial lamb covered with lots of good old chemical slug pellets, which help to keep them in check! ones for storage

Re varieties that keep, I grew Valour for a few years and they kept right through till the earlies were ready without many sprouting too badly!

Good croppers and large tubers as well!

Only problem they were a terrible taste and watery to boot!

Keeping them really cool appears to be the way to make them keep longer! ones for storage

I have just finished using Dunluce (earlies) still have lots of Sante, and some Rooster and PFA, though they are all starting to grow sprouts!

They are kept in hessian sacks in a shed!

Ask Joe Swift a garden design question

Posted: 21/01/2016 at 21:29


Ask him how "HE" would design and work an allotment !

I remember when he was messing about on his a few series ago and an old chap "TRIED" to give him some useful advice, his reaction and reply was ,embarrassing!


This is not PMQ when some friendly poodle asks the PM some stupid question to waste a few minutes!

Are they worth the cost?
