Oh my goodness! A spiraea I like the look of!
I was amazed how quicjly tomatoes ripen indoors. I had a glut of unripened cherry tomatoes a few years ago (having sowed seed for the first time and not expecting many to germinate, I sowed the whole packet.... ) I picked them thinking I might get round to making some green tomato chutney. By the time I did most were red. Having just been left in an open plastic tub on the worktop.
My mum's cat when I was growing up used to like "playing" with frogs. Thankfully he didn't hurt them - not physically anyway. He used to wake mum up in the middle of the night, as if to say he'd finished playing. Mum would take the frog back to the neighbours pond, climbing over the fence in her nightie in the dark.
I've used ligustrum japonicum where my neighbour's property is close as this website says it's ok near buildings.
Crocus have a list of plants suitable for damp meadow - gives some ideas....see here
Dove, there's a little brown mushroom in one of the pots you brought over. You really were generous with the extras
Happy birthday Verdun!
VetSteve, I've only used the tool on the beds. It pulls the docks and dandelions a treat. I'm a bit like wonky that if I tried it on the lawn I'd have no lawn left! Might get less in the beds though...
Hi Pat. No choice re up time today - children...
It's brill, Pat. I spend ages with a trowel struggling with tap roots and the tool does it in one go. I've no excuses now....
Afternoon Pat. Morning all others!
Had a first go of my new Fiskars weed puller yesterday. Amazing! So quick and easy to use and great fun. So satisfying seeing 4 inches of taproot hanging out the bottom of the tool!
Morning Dove. I hope it warms up. I'm still refusing to put the heating on and my guests froze yesterday - had to offer them the lounge blanket....
