Hi all.

Panda & Lily glad you both sound well

Panda "organic" pellets I don't think there are such things, some are less toxic than others and some supposed to be wildlife friendly but ok until rains then they've gone & that's when beasties appear. Maybe try putting pricky off cuts around your plants, or horticultural grit if they are attacking certain ones, like my "best" tulips I do put blue pellets down, if my veg is eaten, only a few and I hide under the plant leaves and remove debris early in morning.  A world without slugs / snails would be ace.

Kef isn't organising any beer festival but will come to cabin if a party is planned.

Pdoc thanks for info' will visit Bot Gdns then, as I haven't ever seen one, only pics.

I'm happy bunny just had 6oz medium rare sirloin steak, cut into Scooby snacks and taken 25mins to nibble, cold by the time I'd done, but hey! proper food.  Mouth not up to Rump or Ribeye ( more tasty but more chewy) but soon... very very soon...

Freedom for Yorkshire I say in a "woolfie" voice.  

Back from SM I swear the place gets worse, only go to that one which starts with an M cos Mum familiar with lay out.

Tonight is steak & salad and if my plastic temp' crown cover gets chewed thro' too bad, I'm fed up of what I call mush. Will chew at otherside slowly

Not in mood to start gardening now, just doing to do an an inspection of GH.

MrsGarden, I've counted all my spare bricks

Think I've already said hello, but if not, Hi to crazy & noodle

Tea for me please Dove. Not good news about car expense

No sun here as yet, cool wind.

Today is SM day, wish it was yesterday again, had a lovely time at Botanical Gardens with MrsGarden, some dodgy plant pronunciation from us both, and a desire to dig some plants up and bring them home. We did consider sneaking into "private" area where new plants were kept but thought better of it. Had cake instead. Had a nosey in MrsG's lovely garden, she has put loads of work into it and has lots of ideas and plans, plenty of seeds on the go   I just hope those arches are delivered on 18th.

Better go and finish the shopping list. BFN.

Lizzie my Exochorda is one of the few things that is slow this year only has a couple of flowers open. It is my favorite plant in my garden.

Pic below was taken late April last year.

 Chicky I can't remember if mine flowered in it's first year, but it has been reliable even after transplanting.

Archie stuff, hope it's sorted.

Fairy I think you'd better get the wand going on the weather.

Clari we've also got plenty of ladybirds.

Fidget can I have Haddock instead of cod ?
