Funny, I though you were a head teacher, wonder who I mixed you up with?

Morning all. Dove what a special job you have, I can feel your passion as well as some frustration. Enjoy your last few days (sorry, lost count).

last nights school Halloween party was a riot (in a good way), so much fun with great kids.

work this morning only. Not opened curtains but can hear some heavy rain.

Fallen Apples - Dig In or Compost ?

Posted: 24/10/2013 at 08:17
Rats. Oh no. Another job to do. Compost bin collapsed so I was going to leave it as a compost heap but its full of apples so I think it'll all be scooped back into a bin this weekend, come rain or shine !

Morning dove, stacey, chicky and all you sleep heads.
I'm back at work today so of course it looks like the suns coming out!
Quite a bit done in the garden over the last week or two. Border redesign incorportating a new path to show off the Acer, well it is finally autumn ( oh - woody's still here isn't he?). GH up but a bit empty, and I thought id done loads of cuttings!
So a question...
Cuttings, Echinacea, have a lot of growth esp near the base. This growth is laying on the I snip them off, leave, repot or just add a grit layer to protect?
As I said yesterday, sorry not been here to help through all the recent rubbish. X
Have a great day everyone.
