Someone called Mike Allen asked for more personal information some time ago, It didn't meet with much enthusiasm.

What does it really matter anyway? Technical qualifications aren't really necessary in order to offer help, in my humble (unqualified) opinion.

Well spotted Pansy.

It's always best to pot anything up gradually. 

Talkback: How to maintain a garden pond

Posted: 01/03/2016 at 10:05

So right Fishy, last year, which was my ponds 1st full year, it had loads of blanket weed, I was forever twiddling it out with a stick. This year it's absolutely crystal clear, not a sign of it. It's definitely about getting the balance of the plants right. My underwater plants have grown on so that's the answer.

When will people learn the difference...

Poor Wonky, I hate being bombarded with adverts, what will she use, I couldn't get ad locker to work on my iPad.

Dad has made it to 92, so he is pleased with himself. 

Heavy rain here as well, so no gardening will get done today, I am not even walking up to the greenhouse.

have a good day everyone.

Oh! Arctic blast, I thought they have been telling us there is no Arctic anymore.

I would dearly love to go to Rosemoor, but I can't leave dad at the moment for that length of time. Things not so good, We may have to do with a cuppa and a mooch round the polys.

I hope not Sophie, I am here at my dads garden, it's a lot to cope with and has been a lot of hard work, I wouldn't want another

Care of plants

Our Morrisons is brilliant with the plants, they open the under cover bit that usually houses the trolleys and there are staff there who look after the plants really well.

I'd rather not go to bed, for me it's a waste of time when I could be doing something better. I read half the night, sometimes get up and make tea and toast, watch a film.

You get used to it. when my son in law was one night work, he would come home in the morning, go to bed a 7.30 he'd then be up again about 11am, coped quite well.

Hosta, young man, I dare say if you follow the counselling route you will be diagnosed as depressed and put on some tablets. Have you tried the Nightol yet. At least they are not prescription drugs.
