Plants for around a pond

Posted: 17/02/2016 at 11:40

I think you may need to fence it off or something, you say it's exposed to passers by.

lots of choices of plants given, note that bunny grass is barely 6" tall though.

My OH says NHS should be privatised, they would pull their socks up then. It's discusting, when there are more people in the country they should take on more doctors.

mould on germinating seeds

Don't be embarrassed, everyone has to learn. We've all done it.

I find seeds will germinate in anything, gravel in your drive, piece of wet kitchen roll, you don't need anything expensive to germinate them. its what you prick them out into that's more important as long as you have a good air flow and draining compost.

You could be better off if you waited a bit until March when the weather should be a bit warmer, don't know about drier, but just make sure there is plenty of air getting to your seeds and they are not wet.

I would just like to say thank you to Hazel re post about her dad and the Vit b12 deficiency. My dad is suffering very similar symptoms and  could well be that or anemia, so.. phoned to speak to the doctor this morning, to see if he could arrange a blood available  phone call appointment is next Tuesday! I have written a letter to him, quicker than a phone call.

Told by the receptionist, if he's ill, call an ambulance!

Help posting pictures ..?

Just get one thing changed and another is off.

You wouldn't want to argue with the Blue Angel, he's the Devil.

i have small pots, so water logged I can't lift them, on the other hand I have large pots that in the summer I can easily move, 

Bob knows his beans

You can make a container out of a very large tyre, it's not called a large pot.

lots to ponder on here.
