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....

Put the sawflies in the bin, B3 - don't put them in the back of your border.  

I too get them.  I'm squeamish so don't like to handle them so similarly cut the leaf /twig off.  I hold a small tub underneath to catch them as often they drop when disturbed.  

I think the new eggs get dug into the stems and you can have a look for them over winter?  I'll have a look year and hopefully they'll be high enough up the branches to prune out.

Strictly is back!

X factor is my guilty pleasure.  I'm not a massive tv person but for some reason X factor draws me in.  I record it (OH laughed at me the other day for using the term "tape") so I don't have to watch adverts and can forward through the worst of the drivel.

Just saying hello so this thread appears in my followed threads listing and I don't have to search for it again....

Oh Pat, the hint of spring is my favourite time of year.  Autumn's coming so fast over here.

I'd miss a tumble dryer - everything turns crispy being dried on airers. I'm terrible for using it in the summer
