Tulip planting

Posted: 01/10/2014 at 21:14

Tulips are best planted in November, they need to be fairly deep, when they grow they will just tip over in the wind.  Have a look at Sarah Ravens site

So sorry for you and your mum Verdun, you will have to be so firm with them, threatening with the newspapers usually does the trick. 

I would have thought where you live, that things would have been good for old people, its not like they are stretched as in big towns,

My mums still in Derriford, they are wonderful in there, every single nurse is lovely. Mum doesnt mind being in there at all.

I went to pick her up yesterday, but on Monday she had developed a very nasty rash that had run into one big red swell, I noticed it when I visited on Monday, but she dared me to say anything, and with my mum, you do take note! anyway at 10 pm the scratching got the better of her and they called the doc, nothing really wrong, but he was afraid of meningitis, turned out she was probably allergic to a bottle of elderflower cordial my daughter took in on Sunday, they went through every single thing she had eat and drunk. so hopefully I can get her today.

I have asked for a porter to take her to the car, I damaged my back/ribs last time trying to pull the dreaded wheelchair and told them this time that I cannot do it.

I will phone shortly and see if shes ok for the out. Mind you, I am dreading it because she wont be as good for me as she is with the nurses!

I had a load of it in our last house, I loved it with the berries on for Christmas wreaths, surprizingly, in a garden of this size, there is not one bit!

Alex says that sometimes it could be caused by a dead one in there. It doesnt matter in a big  pond but in a little one, can caurse probs.

Plants sent today, finally, bet you thought I was having you on?

My daughter didnt have a pond but found them mating in her outside loo, she got them and and spawn out and made a pond in the kiddies sand pit, she is now overrun with frogs. Seems they are not fussy.

Thats a dilema FB, but that choice has to be yours, I wouldnt go, but it must be up to you, and if he died while you were away, you may never forgive yourself.
