storage question

Posted: 20/01/2014 at 10:26

I don't do begonias but I think they would need frost free storage. The hardy bulbs would be fine through the summer once they're dormant.

I leave daffs in the ground.

If something is dormant it shouldn't need light, sounds like a good place 

Thanks everyone

Notebook is a good idea Clarington. One notebook at a time is very good.

One in the shed, one in the GH, one in the bedroom, one in the bookcase and one in the office is less good. I still can't find the 'where I put the snowdrops' map 


Mulching with privet

Ours gets done one a year LF. This week I hope, before the birds move in. The 'trimmings' are 3 foot long.  They'll be longer this year, we're going to reduce it by an extra 3 foot or so, we're talking about logs from that.

The mower will clear up the bits at the end

Marinated lumps, (pieces is what quorn call them). Soak them for a while in a bit of olive oil, some soy sauce or wine, herbs, garlic and whatever spices you like, They mix well with rice or pasta.

I like the whitish coloured quorn but not that brown mince. It looks too much like meat and smells bad.

It's amazing how small a heap you get from a mountain of prunings.

I shred any shrub/tree/ dry perennial stalk and it all goes back on the garden. Wonderful round newly planted shrubs etc, retains the moisture all through summer, keeps weeds down, unless you count the seedlings from the dried flower stems as weeds

I write down lots of things but never what I need.

Somewhere I made a map of which of the snowdrops is planted where. Can I find it?
