Hello everyone.

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.

Hi all.

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.

Nice thread.

I am not savvy enough to change my ring tone, but there must be some good gardening ones.

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

Hi all.

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.
