Just put a fleece bag on my convuvulus cneorum. Now I have done it wish i had bought more. Have been in greenhouse, a vent opened itself so warmish in there and with OH help tied newspaper round the olive pots, fleecing the tops. Also loosely fleeced bay tree in greenhouse.
I think next year will get some to go around olives. last year I didn't cover pots but if, as they say, will be colder newspaper will have to do
OH went to buy firelighters off his list this morning. He said there were spaces for 4 sorts but no lighters. We have just about enough to last a week, Then will have to resort to paper spills I guess.
Really a sign of times - not only have they sold out of firelighters because it is getting colder, they have sold out of firelighters because people are using wood as an alternative heat source because energy is so expensive.
Definately chillng again now. tea then get washing in.
My mother used to sign up because she said they know who I am because they have my name on the letter. When I took over her affairs it took me ages to sort out what she was paying for and stopping the debits. Yes Jo you are right, vulnerable folk beware.
