Hope Jess gets well soon.

Men have just been out and repaired green where bonfire was. Repalced  turves and seeded around the edge. I provided some DAffs to plant under turves. One complained that he would have no where to play football, with daffs  there pointed out that there was plenty more green, then went in, could have said more!

hardwood cuttings

I have found this thread really useful. I have a lovely scented shrub - n o idea what it is - and have tried softwood cuttings. Your advice + RHS makes me think I will give it another go with hardwood cuttings, in a pot.

Which has given you such grief Geoff?

Inkie cat always growls at the rain when we open the door for her. Gets positvely ferocious if its snow, but then.....

Wonder how Jess is!

You could always try Amazon

Just come in from doing tidy up, Lost my favourite secateurs somewhere in garden so having to use some others not the same though. Ones I lost have orange handle but it became very muddy. Maybe it will turn up as tidy up continues.

Sorry Kate but it has been a lovely bright, mild day here.

Back from vet, sweet little cat turns into a ferocious lion when shown a needle. Last time it took 3 of us to hold her, this time 2 and a towell! She has a flea allegry, already known, from grooming it has affected her insides, so special food for a week, steroid injection and see how she goes, oh and top up the frontline. And lastly loads of money please!

Do we have crickets in this country? We did used to have one in the back of a fridge , long time ago, it used to chirrup when fridge got warm!

MD collecting leaves. We have tried it. Raked leaves into a longish pile about width of mower and ran mower along pile. loads of nicely chopped leaves and no ruts as only put mower in a small area. MD also said pile them on a path to do it, I'm not sure wether blades would survive

Lovely tulip tree. Colours seem to have come out to dazzle this weekend

 WE finally had Christmas arrangements cobfirmed I think. We get baby and parents and daughter and partner weekend before Christmas. Means son 2 who lives with us won't be here as busiest time of year  for him. Then Christmas day we get son 2 late in afternoon. Next year when baby will be fun we get her and others on Christmas day.

Wish my foot was as esily replaced!

Morning All

Good to see you Kate, Have you caught up with the week of nonsesnse(whoops) chat or are you giving it a pass?

Got up this morning to find cat Inkie had been very ill in many places in Foody room, third in a row so it's off to the vet later. It was thought around Septmeber that she may have ingested some garden chemical, but it all cleared up, Don't know where from. So she's off for a check. she also has the flea allergy.

Sunny here but very wet underfoot. Talking of foot came downstairs today without a single OUCH so that's good 

Any bids yet? I bought an old settee off Ebay to re-upholster, Daughters partner got it me for 99p. Think seller wanted a bit more! Still waiting for its new covers!

Water butts

Posted: 09/11/2012 at 22:31

I couldn't find a low cost water butt supplier either. I did buy them and I now have 3 off the house, 1 off the greenhouse and an emergency dustbin supply incase the others run out. I got a cheap plastic dustbin, in the lid was a central stopper, popped it out, inverted the lid and it collected water aswell.

Metered water bills went down quite a bit
