hamza, I think garlic can be planted and started off in a green house in little pots or modules.  Then put into the garden after the worst of the weather. I'm not sure.

So others can help. Is your garlic outside in a plant pot without drainage?

Right that's two petitions. One for quicksand & one for bobble & sun hats

BFN, off to market ( sounds like start of a nursery rhyme ) and a visit to Mum, whose trimmings are coming down today!

Chicky the luck you've been having I'd leave one decoration until the 6th.

I've always done the 6th, but if I count from Christmas day night it's the 5th. Whatever, I don't like taking them down. Maybe a dust sheet over the tree will be okay, to save putting it up next Christmas.

What is this glossy leaved evergreen?

Relief, I thought I'd been cooking with a hedging plant.

I thought the 12th night was the 6th  Just had my fingers out and yes it's tomorrow.

Verdun, glad Spike has got an appetite, hope you don't have to spoon feed him like I had to do one of our cats who needed to wear a lampshade. She refused to eat.

Maybe I should wear a lampshade for a few days

Morning all. Wind seems to have eased but still raining and looks like it won't get light today.

Think I'll also take some trimmings down and then leave the rest until 6th.

Hope Dove doesn't get wet through on her power walk.

Verdun, poor Spike.

Think things can't be good for Fidget and her very poorly MIL.

Hope all have an uneventful night weatherwise.

See you tomoz'.

Been sunny here and breezy now v. windy, showers and cold. Gathered a few leaves and checked things in GH's. Had to paddle to get to one.

Happy for you John

Matty good about Lazarus  Just need you to recover

Gardengirl our Blackbirds are scoffing chopped up windfalls at a good rate & feeder birds are clinging on like good uns.

Hi Clari. Chicky still crossing my fingers, making it difficult to type.

David, I'd better learn how to use this before thinking about an upgrade, amazing what you find on a camera if you wear your specs and read the guide 

Thanks for encouragement & advice.
