Thanks ML.

FINALLY, successfully placed order for the lavenders! No idea (well maybe) where they will go! Will have too many but have an idea to earn myself some money next year by selling plants at car boot sales. Not doing the one at school, too many other things to do to get organised.

Rose, I will be going to the bot gdns next weekend if you want to pm me about meeting up - or anyone else as well. It's the garden up event Rose found out about.

morning (or is it afternoon - its taken that long to read all the goings on!)
Tired last night and somehow had logged out of forum so just was a bit too much effort to log back in.
So... Bills slug (!) looks just like one I tried to photo yesteday but there was no card in the camera so it didn't take , oh also no battery, anyway no picture!
Panda - one of your posts, have to say " too much info"!!! But hope your backs better soon.
OL - glad you had sweet dreams, hope all is well with mum and work behaves itself. I dreamed that I found a patch of nettles at the bottom of the garden and had to dig them up to 'display' them in the beds!
Lily, go get em gal! Been there at work, 2 colleagues left but still took a while to get back to semi normal.
OL didn't you change your big GH to a smaller version? Of do I need to generate some more memory cells?
Fairy - in my head the rhyme starts : one for Jayne...
She was a friend who succumbed to cancer. When I found out about her passing I sat in the garden (where else) to think. I was 'talking' to her and said (daft but its what I said), "give me a sign youre ok now" - immediately, and I do mean immediately, a very noisy magpie spluttered,flapped and cried its way into the garden. Even without my musings, it would have been a significant entry! So I now always say 'one for Jayne' when I see a magpie.

Ol hope you get a good night's rest. DLTBGTY (remember?)

Busy day for me,cinema and 'back to school' shopping. Son behaving in a 'challenging manner' all day, so to cut my nose off to spite my face I said 'no tv' so had to address the follow on and no 'me time' while he watched tv - when will I learn?

Now having a little 'topiary google' for inspiration for my holly 'boring ball'! Wish I'd stop these ideas coming into my head! Teacup indeed!

Will have alook, hopefully tomorrow for seaweed / epsom salt sprays. Thanks.

Please help, what is this?!

Beat me to it Landgirl! Spread like mad, dug all mine out last year (sorry I'm just not keen on yellow), expected some to return but this has reminded me  - and I seem to have done a better job than I thought! Hope you enjoy it LMG3

Feeding plants in the rain?

Thanks everyone.

so FBB sprinkled around plants? What about the ones planted this year with FBB in the planting hole? Therefore how does that work with 'feed well in first year' ? Can they still be fed with diluted feed as well? What happens if they are overfed? 

Are the things Marinelillium mention easy to find in GCs? seaweed, selenium, fungi? How much  milk and brown ale?

Sorry folks, but still confused.
