Dhalia dilemma. Orange Nugget ??!!

You can have my big orange one if you want it Hosta.

I have probably been lucky over the past 3/4 years with leaving them in and mulching.

all the ones above are from seeds collected from my own plants, which were originally from a pkt of seeds, they don't come true with colours, I am happy with that. I have three big showy ones, the orange,  a purple and a really spikey pinky one, they were bought.

I have just picked my sage for drying, ready for Chrismas sage and onion stuffing.

chopped the parsley down for freezing in ice cubes.

I like to sort out now, just in case they don't over winter. Depends what you have, I think my Chives just go on all winter, then cut back in Spring ready to go again.

It's my birthday

Garden Waste

Posted: 18/09/2015 at 20:20

Our council supply big white bags for compost, they give us five, but I have put one of my own out as well and they have taken that, that's a once a fortnight collection. Most I compost, but there's stuff I won't keep, mostly brambles. That is free. I don't think I would pay for the service though.

our daily household waste is a big problem though, they don't supply wheelie bins so we put ours in used compost bags, having used a little bin bag first of course, but they only collect this once a fortnight alternate to the green waste, recycling is collected every week from a box they supply.

I asked if I could buy our own wheelie bin because the foxes will have it out, even during the day but they don't have the facility for them.

Lyn, I hope Dad wasn't missing supper by the time you got home.


Strange how sometimes it works.never mind, when the sites up and running we will all be quoting with ease!

dad was fine, apart from the postman he hadn't seen or heard anything.

i did him a jacket potato in the microwave with a big pile of cheese, he loves that.
