Talkback: Brambles

I found the only way was to keep cutting them back and digging them out, now I can catch them when they are small. Glyphosate didnt touch them, just killed the leaves then they shot out again with a vengeance, so after several sprays, not doing any good,  I just dig.

Parsnip problems!

I would have said too much feed in the soil as well, just going by the hairy rooty bits.

Gosh! I would be absolutely thrilled if something just kept growing especially when they had been frosted several times, what sort of help do you need, if you really dont want them, just put them out in the open garden or in the compost bin,

My woodpecker has just come back, they breed in the garden and bring their young, then they are gone for months. 

Just the usual here.

How cold Lizzie, I always thought of France as a warm country.

Its 7c outside at the moment and full sunshine, makes the winter seem shorter when you have a nice day.

I have some more fuchsia cuttings to pot on, they are growing away really well this year, when I have changed beds and got the washing in, I wil be off to the greenhouse, loverly jubbly! I love the greenhouse work.

Frank, please send Joanne down here I need some serious housework done, never been my thing, housework, (I love cleaning windows!)  always tidy though, I do the whirlwind bit, usuall before bed time, dont like getting up a mess. 

I am pleased to be retired, although I am self employed so can work when I choose, which isnt in the winter, fortunately, Gold leaf doesnt take in the cold weather.

The jobs just stack up for the Spring!

I think I may phone the doctor, or maybe the district nurses, there seems no point in keep giving anti biotics, a nebuliser or physio sounds mord like it.

The problem is that she wont walk about, she ralled round a bit before Christmas and decorated her tree but was too puffed to do anything else, she walks for less than 5 minutes in 24 hours, so all her day is spent either laying in bed, sofa or comfy chair.

She just will not have it when I say she would be better sitting up or little stroll up and down the passage.

Thank you for all the suggestions, Dove, never feel you are giving unwanted help, I am sure your advise is sound and you know more than me,

Quite mild here too Marion, its been 7·5c today, but the wind blew up very cold so did some potting up in the greenhouse. I agree that the birds think its Spring, I watched 2 cock pheasants sparing today while mrs p looked on, fight it out boys!

You orchid is beautiful, I have never had one.

People that ask you to fill a form OUT, Surely you can only fill something in.

I used to be a grave digger in a previous life, never filled one out, always filled it in.
