Plant Protection - Fleece 'Hats'

Posted: 11/12/2012 at 18:03

I dont wrap my bulb pots, nor cover them. I do put the pots close to the side of the shed or house wall though, neither of which are on the frosty side of the garden. That gives protection but allows the rain to get to the compost.

I do cover my pots with tied on pea netting though- squirrel prevention & also sometimes the blackbirds go rooting in the compost & disturb the top smaller bulbs. Net removed asap the shoots appear. Blackbirds can still uproot things, as can the 'b' squirrels. J.

Ok Geoff choir boy/girl choc.

Becks cant remember...... will check again sorry. Told you my memory c**p!

Drat, my vision has started to play up. Can still 'see' though it all, but if driving I do stop & pull over.

Lottie- assume you're talking about the bosses' wife? I was one of those.....

Will drive down to hospital tomorrow, I walked today. Appointment just too early to get my act together for a 35mins treck at rush hour. All being well should be out soon so can go & do my usual midweek shop & some other chores.

Still thinking about daughter's meal. I'll be fine with just soup but she'll want something more- better go check what got in freezer. Was planning to do a list of contents later anyway before I go shopping tomorrow.

Also waiting on the boiler starting to whistle- anytime now.... It woke me nicely (!) just before my alarm went off this morning. J.

What's the weather like in your area?

Below freezing first thing this morning, but sunny & dry, so walked down to local hospital quite safely. Lots of people scraping the ice off their cars.

This evening just got back to notice that the frost didnt lift at all off the one side of the back garden. Literally just above freezing out there now. J.

Nipped back to say I'VE FINISHED the cards & letters!! 

Knackered now though, so wont be celebrating otherwise wont sleep properly.

Will be absent until later on tomorrow- course, then lunch out. At least wont be making any noise to wake daughter. Phone already put to silent. Have forgotten already what time she'd be back assuming she stays the whole duty.......

Right, off to sort out in kitchen. Went into there just now to see half emptied dishwasher...... byee, J.
