garden ivory

Posted: 31/03/2015 at 00:44

Personally I would consider keeping it as its great for wildlife, I'm lead to believe that moths love it? But if you really must get rid of it then cut it at its base and leave the ivy a couple of months or more to naturally die. It will then be easier to pull away from any wall/tree that its growing against. 

Ivy gets a bad name as people think it damages walls, but often the reality is that it only does damage when people yank it off the wall whilst its still alive.

I suffered severe withdrawal symptoms after finishing The Wire, I felt like I'd lost a limb. A friend prescribed the Sopranos boxset which did the trick, but I then developed Soprano withdrawal symptoms. This was cured by watching Breaking Bad, but when Id finished that I didn't feel the need to live anymore.

Good box sets should come with a government health warning!

How did the farmer train his sheep to do their 'business' in the same place for 30 years?

I think I'm correct in saying that sunflowers rely on heat, rather than daylight to grow and flower.

On that particular year I was growing the taller varieties as a bit of fun for my son. I think some of them were Mongolia which had massive heads. A kind member of this forum also provided me with some of the seeds. I grow them every year, and I need to get some seeds for this year.

I always start in small pots in the greenhouse, then pot on and move outside when they are a foot tall approx. They ended up looking like this the other year..

Its Monty that I enjoy the most on GW. I often fast forward through some of the other sections if they are talking about things that dont interest me, such as Rhododendrons .

Yes, Ive watched most of them more than once since Ive had them recorded. I usually watch them after Friday nights GW, I search for the equivalent episode from previous years, its like getting double/triple dose of GW.
