I know Gran, I have had a good innings though,

Anyone claiming the dahlia?

Pm your address PP, I will save you some.

Conifer Problems

I wouldn't think a tree that size would be affected by drying out or over watering, it could just be coming to its end naturally, I don't know how long it's been there, or could just be wind burn. I have never watered  a conifer, except on planting and when very young.

Yew trees in Churchyards, said to keep the devil away, more likely to stop the farmer getting some free grazing.

What new plants will you be trying?

I have a Vinca in a wall top, it's evergreen, variegated and flowers just have to keep it in check, but on a wall it's good, not too tall.

You're right Verdun, I always muddle those two up !

As much as I love Hellebores when they flower, I dislike them for the rest of the year, I tie them up to make room for other plants, but they are not atractive later in the year.

DD Lewis started three weeks ago!! , last night was the third episode, although they are splitting them, so part 1 & 2 of the first story gone, and part 1 of the new one last night. I don't like them split like that so record them and wait for the full story.

Can you get them OnDemand or catch up?

Does anyone remember a bear called Gladly, just reminded me after my predictive text email to Hosta!

So no one remembers Gladly. He was the babies teddy in the cartoon series the Perishers. Daily Mail I think.

Hosta, you were up early and I was up late, still internetting at 2am.

Whatsoever it is, it won't recover. May have to replace.

I have collected some Calendula seeds, they are bright yellow and a large plant, big flowers.

Have I forgotten anyone, like promised seeds that never arrived, I am doing a Granma here !!

I have lost all my PM's again. That's happened before.

i also need to get in touch with the person who wanted the spikey pink dahlia, her address was in my pm's, now lost.

 You are right Verdun, I never thought of that, anemones flower quite late don't they, there will be a bare space until they get going, I think all in the same border, but spread out with other things between.

Plant Paupers wall, what are those daisy like plants that spread all over the walls in Cornwall, agyranthimums is it?

Hosta got some nice ones in the front garden.

I love Laurence Fox, as well, have recorded all the Lewis series so far, will watch on a cold wet afternoon.

What is River,? 

Hosta, I thought about leaving my Cannas that are planted out, in the garden, not a good idea? daughter leaves hers but she is over the border, it's an overcoat colder here.

Hope,everyone's hubbies have a good night.

They used to say you never own a cat, they are free spirits, that's why there was never a license for cats, only dogs. Used to be 7.6d.

most of my cats in the past have been strays.
