The dangers of gardening

Posted: 30/04/2015 at 16:37

Oh poor you. I've never broken anything (touch wood) but I've pricked my eye, once on a yucca and another time on a bag of compost. I looked liked a vampire both times.

Hope your shoulder is better soon.

Hi everyone,

Ed got Verdun's joke. Leighton Aspel was the winning jockey. He won last year too.

I saw the first swallow on Wednesday. Although I haven't seen one since. He might have gone back to Africa as it's turned quite cold.

Morning all,

It felt really cold when I  took my dog out earlier. I don't think we are going to have the hottest day of the year so far here.

Ed. It is only Virgin Media non cable customers who have to change to Talk Talk. You are fine. We can't get cable in the wilds of Cornwall.

Do you think the air pollution will ease when Verdun's washing machine is fixed?

Hi Ed,

I got an email from Virgin Media to say they are transferring non cable customers to Talk Talk.  Not happy about this as it means changing email address. Probably be cheaper though.

I ordered two collections of bare rooted shrubs from Lead the Good life at the end of January. They were £10 per collection plus postage.  They are common every day shrubs but will go fine down the bottom of the garden. A bargain price. I potted them up in the conservatory but four out of the twenty are dead. (no green under the bark) I emailed Lead the good life but they said there was only a 30 day guarantee but I could have replacements for 9.99 each. I don't think 30 days guarantee is enough for bare rooted plants.

a good turn needs to be considered......

Watch out for adders, Verdun. I saw the first one over a week ago but I like to see them although you are not so keen.


nipped off primrose's

I keep chasing squirrels off a single red camellia. Over half the flowers are gone. They leave a double pink one alone. Bluetits are pecking at the centre of the red one but don't damage the flowers. Rabbits nip heads off my daffs also although they don't eat them.
