Crinum Powelli

Posted: 13/10/2012 at 13:28

I have had a crinum in a pot for the last4 years. This year, for first time it has produced a couple of flowers. It is bursting out of its pot.and I feel it needs garden room. When do I transplant it? Does itneed any special conditions? Could I move it now or wait till spring

Glorious day. Hills had a froth of dark clouds (like unkempt grey hair) just on top of them and clear sky above. Really wierd. Lay in bed thinking must take a picture but was too comfy to get up and search for camera.

Hope to do some more weeding and planting but have people coming tomorrow and need to bake a cake ( and tidy)

ASDA been trying to send this. Don't know if I can now. You really have something to bargain with now. Phone the area manager whether you get satisfaction or not. What deal can he do. Get firm, aggressive BUT always polite. Make sure that management above the ne store know your feelings, how you have been messed about. Play the child no food angle. Go to it Girl. Demand satisfaction plus. 

Just left foody room - footy on

I haven't put anything on abut my avatar. Meet Oscar, my lovely Spollie, age 12 years still too full of fun for his own good. Also about is Inkie, white cat with the odd splash of black and adopted cat Sophie, one eyed, fluffy spoilt by previous owner (my mother)  and a real blot in the family make-up

Meet Titchmarsh sitting on the mushroom stump. The other one doesn't have a name but he lives in the fairy dell. Name suggestions???

And I dashed out with road trip on for this photo. Charles Hanson valued a clock for me once. He was just as enthusiaistic about my old clock as he is about everything else he finds
