Overwintering sweet pea seeds

Posted: 22/10/2015 at 17:31

I agree with Meadow, and won't sow mine till next Feb/March.

Just made the Christmas pudding, simmering away in the pressure cooker, not pressured just using as a saucepan, it doesn't fit into anything else, then offered to make one for son and DIL.

Muggy and drizzley here, had a walk round, back in, cats won't go out, must be wet.

Now off to wash and straighten hair, then film on tv later.

Hope your mum settles down Liri, probably wise not to tell her, just say you've popped in 'on the off chance, and woo hoo! Isn't this a nice room.'

They always offer nice incentives for new customers Verdun, I think they should  offer offers to existing ones.

Do you mean Unforgotten DD, very good so far, that is OnDemand so no adverts. I love that, can't bear adverts every ten or fifteen minutes. Two gone so far. There are so many stars in it, top stars. I wonder how it will all come together.

My grandson is a mathematician, he's twelve studying  a level work at a Maths school.

Conifer Problems

Posted: 21/10/2015 at 09:21

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?

Posted: 21/10/2015 at 09:14

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.
