Slate sculpture

Posted: 04/12/2017 at 08:57

I was assuming if Susan wants to make a table lamp that she wants a chunk of slate,  to carve herself,  how would you make one from roofing  slates?  

we are only used to buying slate by the pallet load,  so obviously I’m on the wrong track here. 

Nothing to do with gardening vent

My OH does that with shepherds pie, then we have the same conversation, I say ....arse out of your trousers but Lea & Perins  on the table, he says,  my mum was posh! Then I let him get on with it. 😀😇

Places down here in Devon, depends where you live, bit for a table lamp would be classed as an off cut,

Here’s are good instructions for roses cuttings 

Growing a rose stem

Posted: 03/12/2017 at 18:46

If it does root, please don’t expect to be able to take three more cuttings from it and have them rooted to give away in one year.  I doubt whether a stem from a bouquet will be big enough to cut into four , they need to be at least six inches long in the first place.

Is there any good reason why garden fleece is white?

I followed the instructions in this little book, I found it just about right, there are so many conflicting   articles on the net,  this one... plain straight forward no fuss book.  if you read this you’ll find there’s nothing to worry about in building a pond.

mine is a wildlife pond so left very natural, I don’t know what’s entailed in building a formal/ornamental one. I wrote the first review.

I put mine in straight away, but we dug ouEd in July I think,  not sure if you can buy any now.

i only got mine from eBay, just bunches of ten I think it was, by the following year it had spread, and by the second year I pulled out loads for the compost bin. You can see how quickly they spread in my photos above.
