again, lots of good advice. Love your photo Busy, gives me something to aim for next year. I normally keep mine in pots, but your trough display is wonderful!

Hopefully over the Christmas I'll deadhead my pansies and violas. Can I still feed them or do I now wait til spring?

When cleaning my border, I found growing a wee holly tree. It must have germinated from next doors berries. I carefully dug it up and put it in a pot. It still looks OK. Will it start growing again in the spring?

Kindle e readers

I have had my Kindle Fire since May and I use it every day.

Pros, A good clear e-reader, quick for reading emails, good internet access, good app choice

Cons, does not support peer to peer roaming, so you need to be near a wifi hotshot to access internet.

Still the Kindle Fire HD 7" is a good buy for me
