Willow trees

Posted: 30/01/2015 at 16:54

I do know that they are bad trees to have near a house, as they are very thirsty trees and take all the moisture available, which can cause subsidence problems.

Left handed tools

Most tools are not L or R handed, but Felco do make L. handed secateurs.

Made it. Got down to mini SM, and it was like a horde of locusts had been through it, just had enough so I can cobble something together for  dinner.

No Huskies or St. Bernards though, which was a shame.

Morning all.

Supplies running short here, no milk or bread. OH not happy as she sets off to walk to nearest bus stop without breakfast. So I suppose an expedition to the shops must be made.

If I am not back on here by lunch, send the Huskies out to look for me, and make sure they have those brandy barrels round their necks.

Need to try and remove some of the snow from shrubs as well, as they all look flattened.

Have a good day everyone, and stay safe.

Evening all.

Verdun I love L. Beaujolais, but find that it only seems to be biennial with me, so I stopped growing it.

Seriously thick snow here, although OH says that the main roads are ok. How am I supposed to get up our drive, then along un-treated lane, then up 1 in 5 hill to reach main road.

I will go bankrupt if this carries on, too many tempting purchases on line.

Stay safe.

I can vouch for that Dove. We sit right on the edge of the D.Peaks, and it is very heavy, and with large accumulations.

Snowing even harder now, must be a good 6 inches now.

This could be seriously bad news for the credit card, as I sit here looking at the on line plant catalogues,

Won't be any gardening for a few days here.

Keep warm and safe.

Morning all

About 4 inches of snow, and coming down heavily, lane on which we live has a steep hill, so is impassable. OH set of to walk to find where the buses were able to run. If it were me I would have stayed in bed.

Stay safe everyone.

Is this idea safe?

I can't see a problem, it is only like a propagator in a greenhouse.

Manure or something else?

As BL says, must be rotted down for 6-9 months, but  will then be wonderful
