Just back from a lovely day out at Pollok Country Park. The gardens of the house were truly inspirational. So good to see the National Trust in top form. Recommended 

DD I have worried for you, very relieved indeed.  Give Shadow a chin rub from my woofies. 

eucalyptus tree

Posted: 24/04/2015 at 23:59

I have grown eucalyptus successfully in Scotland   Some have been rooted from flower arrangements sent, some from small plants  In our present garden I have one growing happily in a pretty damp area that has a lot of bark down. I just always nip the top out. If it looks sick, cut down to ground level. More likely than not it will shoot

we used to live in Australia and I love them If you have a cold crush one leaf in a cup of boiling water and steam! Really helps breathing

DD I am so sorry to hear Shadow is poorly. This is a problem  round about us at this time of year. The gamekeepers ( or someone?) put stuff down to keep the big birds away from the lambs.

poor poor Shadow, fingers tightly crossed for you all. He s a young strong dog!

I have had mine for years with no trouble, this year tho the plants look really dry and discoloured.  I have given them a good feed and  trimmed them up a bit, the ones looking really poorly are the sheltered ones! Strange? I am wondering if its wind damage?

Bio mass heating?

Posted: 21/04/2015 at 23:12

we are looking into the greener form of energy available and wonder if anyone has first hand knowledge of Bio Mass? It s a compressed wood pellet system

I would really appreciate some reviews if anyone has taken this step already?

Mice problem

Posted: 20/04/2015 at 08:33

We have a family of field mice who live in the garage. They cause no damage and I actually think they rather cute!

re the bird tables,   I have spent hours trying to deter the crows who really cause chaos.  The arrival of a new BBQ required the repositioning of the bird table and it is now in a corner, No Crows! They seem to be worried about flying into a corner ! Win!
