Yes Cornwall were the better team. Lancashire did score more points but Cornwall still won.

Good morning everyone,

Cornwall is empty today as everyone has gone to Twickenham to watch Cornwall beat Lancashire in the rugby county finals.

Verdun you could have been introduced to the Duke of Gloucester at the foodbank but your mum is the main priority. (when can I divide my giant oat plants, please? they've been in ten years and are masive now)

Slugs.. sod the organic approach I just want them dead!

Apart from eating our plants some slugs and snails carry lungworm which can infect dogs if they eat them. A dog near me died a few years ago before he was diagnosed.

I agree with Dove. I've fed the birds all winter and even now have fat balls (hope I don't get banned) in the feeders. The birds are thanking me now by eating all the nasties.

There's also a family of thrushes so not too many slugs and snails.

I never see many ladybirds. Perhaps there's not much left for them to feed on.

Tiny white insects in greenhouse

French marigolds planted in the greenhouse worked for me Lavender Lady. I think to be effective they have to be planted in the soil that the plants are growing in.

Photos of your ponds please

Probably really good for wildlife Peat B.

Unusual Foxglove?

I agree with Fleursa.

I googled it and apparently it rarely comes true from seed but can be reproduced from cuttings. I don't think that would work with foxgloves.

Lovely unusual thing.

Hi OL,

I'm further south than you but I've had my cosmos outside for a few days now hardening off so hopefully they'll be okay. Heavy rain now so might have to wait 'til tomorrow before they get planted out.

Lovely photo of the cranes BL. It was the noise that alerted me to them as I'd never heard anything like it before.

Good morning everyone,

I'm hoping to plant out some cosmos before the forcast rain but sky looking very dark.

Yesterday evening I heard some strange cries and thought it was a bird in distress but when I looked out two huge birds had just passed overhead and I'm sure they were common cranes. I googled their cries and that's what they sound like. I reported the sighting to the Cornwall birding site as I'd be interested to know if anyone else had seen them.
