Oh you have got mixed up-do not put cuttings in the fridge -as a temporary measure inside a sealed polythene bag-they either will root or they wont-do not fertilise yet there is enough food in the compost

Some seeds need the cold treatment but not cuttings.

Gardeners World - not back for 4 weeks!

GW is off air for two weeks because of Wimbledon-the other two weeks would appear because of televised Prom concerts

This does happen ever year-but cant recall it being 4 weeks in succession

As I have said before BBC1 and 3 are the designated Olympic channels but that does not mean that all usual programmes will be shown on BBC2-I think we have to accept that this year of all years GW might get disrupted-we have seen 14 episodes out of 31 so there is still plenty to come.

To add to what I posted this morning the Proms are a week earlier than normal-so that does explain the 4 weeks.

That the Proms is a week earlier than usual that is why the weeks are consecutive but the usual quota of programmes are being made-.

Have just made choc rice-crispie cakes

There are about 4 branches nearest to the wall but they are going over as well now-it has had it and it is a mystery why-I was thinking a tall perennial- fox tail lilies??

As a temporary measure will plant the 3 remaining impatiens and position a container

The slob won't notice-his roses are smothered in bind weed -he probably thinks that is pretty-idiot

I would have had too sleep in the park like a hobo-or rang the emergency transport help-line

The spot where the currant bush occupied was invaded last night-I have moved the PRUNNINGS into place and returned the deposit
