Say what you mean Obelixx, less beating around the bush 

Coir compost

Sorry to disagree, but coir is an excellent growing medium, especially for starting seeds in.

It is environmentally friendly and is a great soil conditioner, due to its fibrous nature.

It is recommended by the RHS. and used in their gardens.

I agree that it does not hold nutrients well, so not good for long term use in pots.

2 would be a majority in some places.

Love the Hibiscus, reminds me of the Caribbean in the sun.

Earwigs are normally regarded as beneficial insects, so spraying them, will likely to do more harm than good.

If they have any, I would love some Toulouse sausage. Failing that, some humble pie maybe

If they are the corm forming type, you can dig them up, cut off the shoots and store them like Dahlia tubers.

Hi all.

Well it isn't raining today, so I shall be tackling the bindweed, I may be some time.

I appear to be in a minority of one when it comes to TB, so I better not speak on the subject.

Hi all.

Today, I shall mostly be building an ark. Stream is now very deep and bringing significant debris down off the moors.

If I can get to the greenhouse, I will take some cuttings.

I need to go somewhere warm, fancy joining me Hosta?
