They must be very cold when you put your feet in them if they're outside.

There are more ladybirds in my garden now than there were in summer.

I posted this after the NYD flower count but here it is again


 

Where can I buy ornamental sweet potato from?

They're usually in the GCs a bit later, they're not hardy.

Often called Ipomoea plus a cultivar name. Nice colours and leaf shapes, never been tempted though

Poplar trees

It's willows that put out the fluffy stuff here. S. alba, fragilis and rosemarifolius, all do it

I have what I think are hybrid black poplars, they don't do that and the lombardies have never produced a flower that I've noticed.

2 pack car body paint.  It's a bit deadly, follow the H&S guidelines. Needs etch primer to start. External metalwork paint might do just as well, cheaper as well as less deadly

Ours it British Racing Green. Very tasteful

10 years and very little damage inside or puit

Get the aluminium one and paint the frame before glazing it. 

That's what we did
