I think reliable moisture might be the key.

Which tree??

It is not the shade that is the problem, it is the space. An Acer would outgrow that space, within a few years.

Recomendations please!

I don't think you can make beds without any drainage. Essentially what you will end up with is like a pot without drainage holes.

You will need to find some way of breaking up the concrete base.

Global warming

There is good evidence from a number the major UK. gardens, that Spring [as judged by flowers and tree leaves appearing ] has got progressively earlier, over at least the last 150 years.

I have no wish to start an argument, but the so called claims for global warming have long ago been proved to be TRUE.

The only thing that is not clear, is how much of this warming is caused by us..

Which tree??

Not sure there is room for a tree in that space, unless you get something like a fastigiated Yew or, an Amagowna Cherry.

It is usually an evergreen sedge and does not require pruning, just gentle "combing" to remove any dead shoots.

Hi all.

Pain much reduced today, but weather dire, so chores I think.

Need to go to the bank, which can be a major job, remembering which branches are now closed and then which days various branches are shut.

Clari, I am with the rest on this one. IF in 6 to 12 months you feel differently, then you could look at it.

Don't have my own kids, so I tend to love other peoples, but I can always give them back, if they annoy me.

Don't know whether I have ever mentioned the problems I am having trying to persuade my Mum that she cannot live by herself any more and how she always ignores me.

Well she phoned last night and asked how I felt about her putting the house up for sale and putting her name down for a flat, with caring facilities available. RESULT!

She is 90 this week, so party at the weekend.

Hi all.

Snowing hard, it is beginning to stick.

Glued to sofa again, with no sympathy from OH, certainly no breakfast in bed and I made the coffee.
