I get diggings message too. I thought it was just me.
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.
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.
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.
I hope Monty was going to pile the tree prunnings in a corner for the wildlife.
So sorry Lyn,
You've been amazing. Look after yourself and have some well deserved rest.
Good afternoon all,
Lovely view of the eclipse but it didn't go dark at all and the birds hardly noticed. We went over the sand dunes at Perranporth to watch it.
I can't upload photos either Matty. I've never had trouble before but get a 'RadUpload Ajax callback error' whatever that means.
Happy Mother's day everyone.
Hope you are better soon BL.
I'm worried about Verdun sowing his seeds during the partial eclipse. Won't it be too dark to see?
Looking forward to watching Verdun galloping across those sand dunes tomorrow night on Darkie.
