The price varies but not a lot, you may find free postage on amazon or eBay you need to look around.

you don’t need a lot watered in so they are good value for money, now is a perfect time to do it.

You don’t need to use chemicals to get rid of vine weevil grubs, there are nematodes especially for these pests. They do work very well and much safer.

pelargoniums don’t over winter here in my garden in Devon, they will go to a mush  as soon as the weather turns wet and cold, you can either bring the whole trough in the green house, or take the plants out pot them up and over winter somewhere cool.

Punkdoc, that’s very nice of your mum to think about you like that and and if it’s at all possible let her come, whether she can look after you or not doesn’t matter, when us mums get old we cherish moments like that to have a last go at helping our children. It will be good for her as well as you.

They seem to be a nice little earner, people are very influenced by tv adds. 

They seem to grow quite quickly as the one in the picture was grown from seed only a year ago. 

I can’t seem to find a site that settles on the overal height, ranges from 1.5 to 4 mtS.

They are Vine Weevil grubs put them out for the birds, they love them

this is what I’ve been doing all morning, going through my Begonia corms, they tuck in around the top and burrow in underneath..

OH’s brother used to get absolutely terrible headaches, they did every test possible, couldn’t find the cause, so suggested Transcendental meditation, it worked and after twenty years, he still does it, although not for so long now.

Step son swears by yoga, has depression, and lots of other mental problems.  He has bad panic attacks and says they are much more infrequent since the yoga. 

I think punkdoc being a medical man would probably not believe in alternative medicines but there’s something to be said for it, for our family anyway.  Even if it is ‘only in the mind’ as some say, it will still help if you want it too. 

Weed ID reguired and which weedkiller?

Sorry your post comes across as incoherent rambling when it's all capitalised!

Any book written by an environmentalist is going to be biased. I put my faith in the myriad of impartial scientific papers written, backed by evidence and data, thank you very much. Plus my desire to make a good living!

See original post

 That poster posts in capitals because her illness has left her very badly sighted, it s the only way she can see what she’s written!

i think you are correct in saying you need to make a good living, I would go and do that if I were you, fortunately , I don’t desire anything.

Couple of pictures of the project. This is a good time to do it, you can collect all the rain water in butts and bins and let the pond naturally fill up. It doesn’t take long, if you have lots of shelter and wild grass and weeds around the edge the frogs will be spawning next Spring.  It’s a lovely project and a great time waster, you can sit down there with your coffee and just listen to the creatures.
