We made an area with patio slabs, then bought one of those poles to hang feeders, easily swept up and washed down. .

Does Chick weed fire seeds in all directions when you touch it, I’ve never noticed that.

Do you mean this one, I have a garden always covered in this, if you let it seed and touch it they fly out everywhere. I just try to pull it up when I can.  Not worth worrying about though, I don’t think I will ever get rid of it.

Where not to plant geranium

Could be a Rozanne mine’s still flowering now, it still won’t come through the weed fabric though, that’s the very idea of the weed proof fabric.

Cheese is fine but it’s much better to buy mild cheddar, there’s much less salt in it than the stronger varieties .

I buy a block of value mild cheddar from Tesco or Morrison.

I can’t read that, much too small and fine print.

Planting bulbs for indoors

Posted: 11/11/2017 at 12:19

Hi Kitty, I think it’s more like a dog poo smell. Whatever it was we all had to put them outside, they don’t grow again if you put them in the garden , so complete waste of money, for us. Others may like them. Seems they don’t do the cold dark for the bulbs anymore, I suppose that was only for Christmas flowering.

How should I overwinter it?

Posted: 11/11/2017 at 09:50

If you want to lift it, leave it to dry out somewhere then check it for slugs and vine weevil lurking in crevices, when it’s completely dry, wrap it in a few sheets of news paper and keep it in a frost free place. Start  it off in a pot next Spring when you see tiny shoots forming at the top.
