Earthquakes are on a logarithmic scale as well.

I don't think that is correct.
Clay can be either acid or alkaline.
The pH of compost depends on what is in the compost. I make a batch of compost from ferns, which is acidic and useful for my Meconopsis.

Just had a tree surgeon round, I want to crown lift 2 of my Yew trees and have some work on a few other trees.
20 minutes outside and I am absolutely frozen, although at least there is some sun. I may need to go back to bed, in order to warm up a bit.
Lovely to see you yesterday, WW.

I too use Rose Cottage plants for Dahlias and have been very happy over the years.

A Common Crane on the bird table would be quite a sight.

I am not savvy enough to change my ring tone, but there must be some good gardening ones.
Scarborough Fair - Simon and Garfunkel.
No Surprises - Radiohead. Contains the line: " Such a pretty house, and such a pretty garden. "

First plant delivery of year. I bought some stuff in sale, from Wootens.
Too cold and snowy to take them to the greenhouse today, I might get lost on the way

Crazy night here, high winds blowing hail / snow against windows, keeping us awake. Now have about 6 inches of snow settled and still snowing.
At least being retired, i can snooze, OH was up early trying to get car out.
Give my love to WW, Dove, and if I can help in any way, let me know. I will do anything for a pint of Adnams.

I saw the Pogues 4 or 5 times and they varied between brilliant and terrible, but were always exciting.
I also saw my all time fave, Joe Strummer, stand in for Shane on one occasion when he was " taking a break " .

I know what it means Dove, but I am too shy as well

Snowing hard, blowing a gale and bitterly cold, no excuse for not studying today then.
Perhaps I would rather have our weather than your Brown snake, Pat.
Shane McGowan is 60, so what you say, well if you had regularly seen the Pogues in the 1980's, you would have been surprised if he had reached 30.
Still think Fairytale of New York is my favourite Christmas song.
I knew you were clever Dove, but that is amazing.

Before going any further, you need to consider whether there will be enough light in your garage, to germinate and care for seedlings, which I think is unlikely.

English Rose by name, but maybe not by nature?

Back from clinic, nothing new.
Snow due tonight, not in the mood for that at all.
Dove heard from fairy just before Christmas LP.

I grow them as shrubs, coppicing them back to a few inches from the ground each Spring.
That way they grow about 4 - 5 feet in a season. It also ensures you keep the juvenile foliage, which is the bluest.

It will be hard to move successfully.
Can't be any more helpful I'm afraid.

Another cold and miserable day here, it is starting to get to me, however hard I try to remain cheerful.
I should be heading off for some sun now, but must try not to dwell on that.
Outpatients tomorrow, so lots to look forward to.
Sorry I probably should not post, when I feel like this.
