Tall, dark and handsome, Dove; wrong on at least 3 counts!

Grrrr homebase violas

I'm not so sure Rainbowfish, I grow my Violas from seed and some years I have terrible problems with leaf spot, other years none at all.

I of course know what I am talking about, as a true born Cornishman, coming from a well known family of ship wreckers!!! my father was very upset when I went into medicine, rather than following in the family foot steps.

All the above, plus Llanhydrock, which also has a house worth seeing and Cotehele. I think both of these are NT, which may make it cheaper.

I find a cold greenhouse adequate for most things. My greenhouse is a 100 yards from the house, so electrical heating is not practical and I don't like parasene, as it makes everything too moist, which encourages fungal problems.

Morning all. We seem to have had a gale during the night, the garden looks like a herd of Wildebeast have been through the garden. Now it is very autumnal out there, with mist and a fine drizzle.

Dove, like the idea of a shiny black door, just like 10 Downing street.

Have a good day folks.

Morning all.

Foggy and miserable here.

SM. done, so I am going to sit in the greenhouse potting on Salvia cuttings taken last month.

Have a good day everyone.

Wont go without a fight....

It will soon be in the garden, digging up your plants and delivering them to me. Resistance is futile!

Just been cheered up by a family of Long Tailed Tits, flitting around one of the feeders.

Nature and gardens are without doubt good for the soul.

Morning all.

Not as grey today and certainly warmer, hopefully may try a little horizontal weeding.

So sorry about the roof KEF, I don' t believe in capital punishment...... but then again.

Hope things are going better Yvie.
