Can you not grow them in a pretty Xmassy pot in bulb fibre? Jim was doing it on Beechgrove on Sunday.
Sounds like you and Lesley have been busy. I have been distracted by admin and gathering documents needed for the signing ceremonies next week so not a lot of progress in teh attic but much thinking about conifers and brambles and maybe a pergola.... On the whole, I think they conifers we have there can go as they're in the wrong place and not too big to dig out. Brambles are tricky as OH loves the fruit so might just delegate their control to him.
BUsy - good idea to get a friend over if you can or just make sure you lock up tight every evening. We tried t get a phone line and, more importantly, an internet connection in August but they couldn't do it at 8 days' notice and the first week of October was too far ahead for the system. I shall end up camping in the Leclerc car park at Luçon as they have a hotspot.
Dove - mobile phone fixed. I'd inadvertently hit a language button on the keyboard screen. Normal service is now resumed and Possum is scathing about my technical incompetence - but I can drive a serious cooker and a food processor and a sewing machine which are better life skills IMHO. She's about to learn in a big way.
