Posted: Yesterday at 08:33

have woken to snow, it was forecast but I always hope they are wrong! More is to come through the day  Lesley we have weather warnings out here hope you ok

doubt I will get to meet pal for lunch before she heads off to Oz

Verdun, i decided you don't actually live in the U K You always seem to be mild 

Busy and Dove hope sniffles departing

Clari snow definitely means no h w, one has to keep watch out the window at all times

i shall start my cook in for Hong Kongers arriving next week

O H and I found, at long last, where naughty woofie is escaping. Clever wee rascal had dug a tunnel under the fence! Touch of the p o w about her! If it just been today we could have saved ourselves a lot of hassle and just followed paws in snow!!

Have a good day everyone, stay safe and warm

Blue and black!

terribly cold here today. Now wind building again.

OH had good post op check then we went " down the valley" and got lots of potatoes, onions and I fell for the surfinia, always happens. 8 for £3   not bad

Over the years I have found if I bring them on early enough in the greenhouse there is a superb hanging basket from one plant.

heres hoping it happens again.

DD have you tried putting cat food other side of cat flap? Also, know it sound obvious but have you checked flap working both ways?

try getting young Charlie to get down to cat level and see what's different, is there a new plant with a smell?

Morning, been a dusting of snow here. Cold again, i am beginning to shrivel up 

ice cream for sore throats best cure definitely, poor wee chap 

Taking OH back for post op check then a wee trip " down the valley" where all the garden centres are.  OH needs more potatoes, i didn't get enough I am going see if I can find Verdun s geranium hocus pocus which sounds lovely, also looking for a new clematis for tree which has been hard pruned 

Have a good day everyone

glad too to gear Fairy ok

Dove, you took the words out of my mouth

We plant in old wooden boxes OH has, they last the summer in a good compost

Is your greenhouse frost free? If it is you should be fine

if not cover your seed trays ( unless already are)  and put an old towel under them. 

Works for me. 

Why not try some cress and chives?

Can I just point out that it is wise to check the local cat population ?

you don't want to become a new hunting ground, might be you have to have raised feeders

When to move snowdrops

Posted: 26/02/2015 at 09:00

It is said the  moving " in the green" is the most successful way to shift snowdrops. This usually means enjoying the flowers and when they wilt transplant

just dig them up, split the bulbs up depending on the size and replant where you want them. It's very straightforward and increases your stock.
