tomatoes on the vine

Posted: 14/07/2015 at 19:05

Wild crocosmia is not flowering

Posted: 14/07/2015 at 09:18

As this was six weeks ago, I wonder if it's flowering now, we may never know!

Posted: 13/07/2015 at 19:54

I had a huge sycamore cut down, took two men three days, they took some logs, left some and chipped up all the scrap. They charged 1000.00 I had three quotes, they were the best!
