I like to be known as a ‘traditional type’ thankfully there are a few of us left.

Never put in  cooked food waste, best thing is to only cook what you know will be eaten.

the only waste I have is the occasional chicken bone, but most times buy fillets.

never thought of a bucket, I send him up top of garden to water direct😀

What did you use that didn’t work?. I’ve always found Provado in pots to be effective, wouldn’t use it on the open garden, but pots are fine. 

Parker’s poor customer service

Posted: 14/12/2017 at 11:49

I have been using Parker’s for 7 years now,  everything in my garden, I have to say I have had the best of treatment and emails are always answered. Sorry, but have to give credit where it’s due. I’ve had lost deliveries, they are replaced without question. 

they give diameter of bulbs and I’ve always found them to be true.

Ok, I’ll tell you a macabre story from here a couple of months ago, without going into too much detail, they had to keep the brain of our friends dad for more tests, so they released the body, keeping the brain. When the family asked if they were finished with it, they said yes and they could collect. There it was, intact in a box.

No question of them cremating it first. .

Punkdoc, they can help themselves to anything they want when I'm dead.

I'll be dead, I'll have no more  need of them.

My children have been informed that my body will be going to medicine / science when I go and they're fine with it. It also saves them the cost of a funeral

See original post

 I don’t think the hospitals will be running a free cremation service,😀
