There is something wrong with my TV-it keeps picking up some foreign music show-who should I contact?

So is Woy the new Messiah?

I may have mentioned I have been on hols-every morning they turn the sprinklers on to water the grass but get over 300 days of sunshine per year-mind you the country is going broke but green grass is better to them than greenbacks.

I used to think that pesetas was Spanish for potatoes

You need to get them in now-put about 8 inches of soil/compost-plant tuber and keep  adding more soil as it grows -start with bag rolled down then unroll as you go and top up with soil.

Hopefully that makes sense-obviously keep well watered and pierce holes for drainage.

Two examples-pelargonium and impatiens-what your a probably looking at something that is not fully hardy-but is suitable as a houseplant or for growing outdoors-there are probably many others but these two spring to mind.

Climbing weed

Bindweed is very common-treat with a glyphosate based weed killer but give it time to work- perhaps2/3 weeks-it will kill right down to the root.

Do not get it on anything you wish to keep obviously so it may mean entwining it from any plants and laying it on the ground-the more leaf area you can treat the better .

I am having a nice day already so am ok on that one.

Did KG make it back by the direct route with no unexpected stop overs?-I may have to catch a bus next week and would like some advice on how to be at the stop on time-it is a 3 minute walk away and they only run every 10 minutes- it is vital  they don't go without me.
