Hallo John/Jazzy2, thanks for the tip. Have just looked them up on Google, they are very pretty. Will have to see if they are available in Switzerland. I do have a basket with hanging geraniums, a red and white striped one and a dark burgundy, they look really great together in one basket.

Ooh, I don't think busy lizzy is going to like being called plastic! I like the double ones and they are great for a site that doesn't like sun, where not many flowers will grow.

PS: How much do your Los Angeles landscape gardeners charge to come to England/Europe? For $5 an hour I might think about it!

I'm also a dahlia fan. I find that there are usually enough flowers on a plant that if I cut a few for a vase they are not missed. Can't think of any flowers that I don't like.

How can you tell if manure is "well rotted"?

We have a small stable 3 doors down and when they go for a ride. for some reason the horses feel the need to relieve themselves right in front of our drive. I usually shovel it up and put it on my compost heap. Every little bit helps!

Ah, he lives in the US, that probably explains it, I've heard everything is twice as big there . Actually, I think that due to his bragging, he doesn't have many friends and uses these forums to get some attention, have to feel sorry for him really.

I've just read all the quoted forums, LOL, definitely one and the same, but what I really wonder is, where on earth did he go to school, he must have spent his time looking out of the window during English, Spelling and Maths lessons!

greenhouse heating

Another eco-frienedly method of heating a greenhouse is to sleep in it, and your body heat should keep it frost free.

Two people would give out twice the heat of one. You could even invite friends round and create your own hotbed.

Love it!
