Thankfully we do not get midges here. A few mosquitos but nothing too bad. I remember when the kids were younger we went to Scotland camping, it was horrendous. We only stayed a couple of days it was so bad . We packed up and went down to The Lake district to get away from them !

Lovely pics everyone, and that cheesecake looks really yummy Tina5.
Very wet all day here in Bristol.Had a quick scout around the garden when the rain eased a bit and the penstemons are really doing well. Not many buds left on my Shasta daisy but several small snails were there instead !! Disposed of them and a few slimy slugs with my handy knife ! My cosmos are really struggling what with the wet and the slugs, and some of my bedding plants in pots are just stalks, all flowers eaten !!

What's the weather like in your area?

Rained all day here in Bristol and its a tad chilly too. Feel for those poor people with all the floods.

I cant keep time with the bird feeders at the moment, as soon as I fill them up they are empty again. We have a lot of sparrows here too, also a couple of young robins, so cute.

Lovely warm and suny day here in Bristol. Cut the grass and done some dead heading. Had the last of our very tall conifers taken down yesterday so a bit of clearing up to do....weather permitting !

They are at it again - more flipping bird food....

I cant keep up with the bird food. They say sparrows are in decline...not in my garden they're not. Love 'em.

I have a special slug knife (an old kitchen knife), and just slice them in half. All over in a flash !

B&Q M.Purpose Compost Issues.

Posted: 01/07/2012 at 23:19
I have bought 6 bags of multi compost from B&Q this year and planted out all my bedding plants in it. All seem to be doing fine. I have also planted potatoes in a bag this year and used the same compost. I have'nt dug any up yet as not ready, but the plants look really healthy and the first flowers have appeared.
