Just be very careful when fitting the adaptor to the xhose.  If you damage the xhose fitting it can't be repaired!!

Why is anyone allowed to completely destroy your view??

I would check with the local council about TPO's and whether the conifers constitute a hedge in which case there are regs controlling the height particularly if they are the dreaded leylandii.

You are right that you have no legal right to a view per se.

Greenhouse should encourage any remaining growth from the ash nicely.


Just kidding - I hope!

Overwintering lilies

Hi Artful Codger,

I don't mind you asking the question here but you'll probably get a better response if you start a new thread for your specific question.

Overwintering lilies

Posted: 05/10/2013 at 16:33

I have a number of pots of oriental lilies.  The flowering stems have all turned brown.  What do I need to do for overwintering? Should I remove the flower stems, should I remove the bulbs from the pots...??

I've just started regenerating a garden so I'm always on the lookout for ways to save a quid or 2.  So far I've only succumbed to the freebies where you pay P&P only and I've been happy with what I've received.

I think it's probably too early to say, but at present I can't see Labour winning and hope it remains that way.  They've messed it up every time they've been in power previously.

All you can do is check the normal selling price and make your own decision.

I don't know why, but I thought I'd try ordering again.  This time it worked without adding p&p a second time.  I accessed the system in exactly the same way I accessed first time round so it looks like their system may be a bit flakey.  Just be aware when placing an order that you need to check that you aren't being charged twice.

Fothergills are getting sneaky.  The advertising says 36 tulip bulbs for £5.60 p&p but when you try to order they add a further charge if you haven't ordered any other items.

Watch out for that.
