It doesn't matter to me one bit, as long as people write or talk to me

My 13 year old grandson is doing a MathS A level this year, has already won a scholarship to a special Maths school which will ensure/insure πŸ˜€ him a place at university, he's already joined the Police Force as that is what he wants to specialise in , with a view to MI5 later, try to read one of his English compositions, best not mentioned,  I don't think it really matters, we are all good in our own field.

i have stopped posting on other forums because of this, I feel certain people are not reading what I post, just picking up on my grammar. For certain reasons, I didn't do a lot of schooling, so finer points sometimes come harder to me.

i have just read on another forum I post on sometimes someone said she couldn't be friends with someone who didn't get the grammar right.  That lets me out thenπŸ˜€

Creating a Wildlife Pond

Posted: 16/04/2017 at 11:27

Wildlife ponds are usually still, some say lilies don't like moving water, but a lot of people have them both.

i don't know what they are for really, pumps that is.?  My water is crystal clear, once your plants get growing there will be no green or slime in your pond.

Brightening up breezeblock

Posted: 16/04/2017 at 11:23

We had a breeze block retaining wall built but we painted it with similar to this,   

can't think of the exact name, got it at the local builders merchants, upv sealer or something, it will stop your masonary paint soaking it and using up too much, it's started to peel a bit now, but has been painted for five or six years.

Creating a Wildlife Pond

The beauty of the wildlife pond is that you don't mow near the edges, you need the grass to grow long and wild for little creatures to hide in. This was mine in less than two years of building it.

What to do with overgrown Eucalyptus

Posted: 15/04/2017 at 11:12

I would cut it right down as well, and have down with one. They don't mind dry though, do they? Taking into account where they originate from.  I would think the roots are well down in the wet soil.

You can get the same paint in a smooth finish, Smoothrite, or you could, don't know if it's still available.

Seedling Clumps

Posted: 12/04/2017 at 19:29

Absolutely no problem, I'm still pricking out mine.

like you, I used to put a pinch in a module but then found it was always too much, so now grow it in trays, if you've got to prick out anyway, you may as well do it soon as last.  Be gentle with teasing them apart, but it will be fine.
